Amid throngs of Black Friday shoppers intent on the best deals and scoring the perfect holiday gift, a steady stream of visitors came to walk the Christmas light display on the Yoast family property in Ambler, kicking off the holiday season.
Jack Yoast is the president of Acteon Networks, LLC., based in Fort Washington.
This year’s “Light up A Life” Christmas lights display, where more than 100,000 lights create fantastic twinkling holiday vignettes, is not only a showcase of hard work by friends, employees and family, but is sure to pull the lips of even the most dedicated holiday “Grinch” into a broad smile.
Look for Santa on the rooftop, on both ends of the rooftop, in fact.
At one end, the jolliest of old elves seems to be smiling and waving to visitors passing by, while on the opposite end of the house roof, his black boots kick at some imaginary mishap.
From jumping dolphins in Santa caps to a Lock Ness-like water serpent (also outfitted in a Santa cap), a fire truck, Santa flying several airplays, a train, snowmen, snow geese and more, to strands of colorful lights wound around tree trunks and bare limbs.
Once more this year the Yoast family offers area residents a magical holiday display on their property.
Donations to this year’s display will be split between the Montgomery County SPCA and the Upper Dublin Public Library. For years, donations have benefited local non-profit and charitable organizations.
Last year, more than $12,000 was donated to the Ambler Food Cupboard, according to the Acteon Networks website.
