TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A holiday tradition located roughly 20 minutes outside Tallahassee shone brightly on Christmas night for all to see. Cars lined up to catch a glimpse of the 11th annual 'Allison Christmas Spectacular' in Havana thats boasts more than 200,000 lights. Most of them are choreographed to six different songs.

"Words can't describe how we feel," creator Daniel Allison said. "It is a truly and amazing thing to see kids hanging out of cars and watching the shows and loving it."

Daniel and his father, Kevin, work year-round to create the display, which they said they do to encapsulate the spirit of Christmas.

"Jesus is the reason for the season," he said. "Plain and simple. We share his joy and love with everybody that comes by and that's why we do it."

Daniel said the show will continue nightly through News Years from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. The 'Allison Christmas Spectacular' is located at 240 Sandy Creek Road in Havana, Florida.

The songs that the lights are choreographed to are also broadcast through the radio and can be heard by tuning into channel 102.5 near the display.
