Families in Albany continue to bring the Christmas spirit to others in the community.

One house on Story Lane in Leesburg has a light show with more than 80,000 lights. The family has been doing the show for 23 years.

During the week, people are able to see the light show, but on the weekend, the magic is taken to a new level. They have a train for kids to ride in, Santa Claus, the Grinch, Mickey and Minnie Mouse for pictures, cookies and hot chocolate.

This show has gotten a lot of attention over the years to the point where people are coming from out of the country to see it. Of course, it's a tradition for people right here in Southwest Georgia.

“This is something we look forward to every year,” Ashley Castleberry, Albany resident, said. “We come to enjoy our time with our family. The kids look forward to it.”

It's free for everyone. Stop by the house on Story Lane this weekend from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
