Albany city employee lights up the night

By Len Kiese - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – An Albany city employee is lighting up his neighborhood and people's hearts this holiday season.

John Antoniewicz and his wife spent three weeks, including 16-hour days on weekends, decorating their home on Millbrooke Road.

The decorations include 30,000 flashing lights set to 18 songs. This year's theme is Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. It's just the second year for the elaborate display but it's already becoming a holiday favorite in the area.

"My wife and I since we have no children, this is our contribution to the community and when we see the smiles and the joy on their faces. That's the payback to us," said Antoniewicz.

Antoniewicz plans to make next year's display bigger and better. He's already gotten permission from his neighbors to expand into their yard.

The home is off of Byron Plantation Road.
