As the saying goes: All good things must come to an end, including the epic Christmas light display on Tuxedo Drive.

Last month, it was announced that the owners of one of Vancouver Island’s grandest and most popular Christmas displays would be ending the tradition of decking up their house after nearly three decades.

Due to recent health issues, the homeowners felt it was time they called it quits on their Christmas spectacle.

Display will continue at new location

2017 was the last year that these decorations would be seen on Tuxedo Drive. However, the festive decor was sold to Merridale Cidery & Distillery in Cobble Hill.

The collection of over 100 pieces of Yuletide keepsakes (including a 1956 fire engine, huge inflatables like a snowman and a nutcracker more than 30 feet high, and life-sized reindeer carrying Santa’s sleigh) will be kept intact at their new home.

Merridale Cidery & Distillery may be further away than you’re used to, but it might be worth it to make a trip out there next year.
