Thanks for staying up with us, this is nightside, i'm aaron luna.

Most people set up their christmas lights after thanksgiving -- one man in post falls has been planning his display since july.

It's so big and bright -- you can see it from i-90.

You can walk right through new on nightside, kyle simchuk shows us what inspired this unique light show.

Over 50-thousand programmable led bulbs, more than a mile of extention cords -- and several months of planning and building.

17:28:48"many months, many hours.

Started probably in july."

:03the lights outside suntree rv park in post falls are hard to miss.

17:31:16"i just drove by one day, i saw them setting it up so i knew i had to bring the kids one day."

:03mike connolly designed and programmed the show -- that's him right there -- he's really camera shy.

17:28:38 20-26"my husband just wants to bring a lot of smiles to families and kids and enjoy the holiday seasons."

Nats tree and music there's christmas music, even star wars.

Rick campbell 19:44:20"loved it, kids loved it.

They were watching it the whole time."

:04mike says he couldn't have done it without his employee.
