Jim and Shelva Eck of Mont Alto have approximately 30,000 Christmas lights on display.  To see the lights at their best, take Route 997 to the Mont Alto Fire hall. Turn on to Walnut Street and go all the way to the end until you see a No Outlet sign. Turn left onto Locust Street and go to the stop sign. When you look to the left you will see the lights from the backyard.

You are welcome to walk through the yard, enjoy a free cup of hot chocolate, and enjoy the sights that you see!  For your safety, please only walk within the lighted paths.  When parking your car do not park in the townhouse parking lot as it is a private parking lot for the townhouse residents. There is plenty of parking along Jones Avenue.

Hours are Sun-Thurs 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM, Fri and Sat 6:00 PM until 10:00 PM.  The lights will be off if it is raining, sleeting, snowing or windy.
