William Bottomley started decorating his family home in the 1980s, and his passion for illumination kept growing.
High Country Lights illuminate Felts Park

When William Bottomley’s Christmas light display outgrew his home, he moved his thousands of twinkling bulbs, trees and Santas to a fire station.

When it outgrew the fire station, he took over an entire park.

This year, Bottomley’s annual synchronized musical light show, featuring nearly 100,000 LED bulbs, moved to Felts Park in Galax. The show opened on Thanksgiving night and runs through Jan. 1.
