MOSS POINT, MS (WLOX) -
When you drive by the Barton residence on River Pine Drive in Moss Point, you'll find that their Christmas Lights are dancing to the beat of their own drum. It's a popular trend that people are doing throughout the nation. It's taking Christmas decorations to another level.
"We started a few years ago with a non-animated display like you normally see driving around. Getting on the Internet we saw videos of light shows set to music and we really wanted to do it. My son and I built the computer equipment and what not and got it going," Joshua Barton said.
The catchy holiday display usually gets quite a reaction from onlookers, but the Barton's unique setup isn't all for show.
"Last year we added a donation box where we would take up collections for St. Jude's and Make A Wish. We kind of feel like it's a natural extension of what we're doing here. You know, seeing the enjoyment of the kids it's just kind of a natural fit," Barton said.
Last year the show, that features 29,000 Christmas lights, was able to raise $700 for charities. So far this year the light show hasn't had a very big turn out. There's still a ways to go before Christmas and the Barton's are optimistic that they'll be able to exceed their goal.
"Its pretty awesome to be able to do something like this. I would hope to at least do the same if not better. My thought is that everybody who saw it last your will come back and then tell their friends and it continue to grow," Barton said.
The display functions every day from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM.
