Christmas show electrifies neighborhood

By Tayleigh Davis - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  A more modern light show is attracting crowds to a Lee County neighborhood.

Tom Fratino strung together more than 76,000 lights around his home in Callaway Lakes. They're synchronized to Christmas music.

A 5,000 light mega-tree is one of his newest additions. Fratino started working on this project the day after Halloween.

He does it every year and lots of people say they look forward to it every Christmas.

"I like how they all pop up and play at different times and I like how they did those candy canes over the driveway,' said Clark Sullivan who was watching the light show with his family.

Fratino still has more lights to put up. All the recent rain set him back this year. His electricity bill doubled from $300 to $600 last Christmas.
