LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – The annual Pyro Shows Christmas light show is almost ready to light up your Christmas spirit. Garrett Hill of Pyro Shows, with help from Lafollette Public Works and Lafollette Parks & Recreation, is into the second day of about a three day job to get Freeman Park ready for the Christmas light show.

According to Hill, this year’s display will have more than 2,500 lights in assorted colors of red, white, blue and green. The build up time to have everything set up is about three days, but it is about a two week project getting things ready before the site build.

Hill is the guy who puts the show together and tweaks the program to make sure the music and just the right lights work together. This will be the fifth year for the show, and there will be some changes this year; some new lights and displays.

The show will begin around Thanksgiving, and the display time will be 5:30pm till 11:00pm. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 11/24/2021-PHOTOS COURTESY OF WLAF’S CHARLIE HUTSON)

  1. While waiting for the light to change, I had the chance to watch these workers doing what they do best…make magic happen. As we watch the magic happen in wonderment and awe when finished, let us all remember it’s because of the hard and seemingly impossible work of these gentlemen that we have smiles and the sparkle of the Season in our eyes. Thank you gentlemen and Pyro.
