The news of a popular Christmas house opening in Chilliwack earlier this year is music to many people.
The house on Diamond Crescent mixes music and lights for a unique and festive Christmas light show choreographed to music. When people arrive home, they can tune into their FM radio to “hear the lights” from their vehicle.
Typically, the musical light show opens to the public on December 1 of each year, but it is open early this year due to the pandemic. The owners announced it on their public Facebook page “Diamond Crescent Musical Christmas Lights”.
“Our current COVID pandemic has really reduced the number of places we can go for fun outings, so we decided to open this Friday, November 27 rather than the usual December 1 to perhaps give residents some Chilliwack are crazy about a change of scenery, ”the post read.
There is a box outside the house for cash donations to the Chilliwack Firefighters Charitable Society. People can also donate online at diamondcrescent.com, and the money will also go to the firefighters’ charity.
“This coming Friday may be commonly known as Black Friday, but we call it Bright Friday! “
Owners ask visitors to see their vehicle lights, turn off their headlights and engines, park respectfully so they don’t obstruct the view of others, and turn down the volume on their stereo.
For more information, including how it’s made and their song list (both Christmas and non-Christmas music), go to diamondcrescent.com.
The house is located at 7620 Diamond Cres. People can drive and log in from Friday November 27 through Thursday December 31.
The hours are: Sunday to Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and December 24 and 25 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
