West Seattle couple puts on huge holiday display with thousands of lights

The display, which includes more than 44,000 LED lights, is synched to music which spectators can listen to on their radio.

SEATTLE — A couple from West Seattle is pulling out all the stops to spread some holiday cheer with an amazing holiday light display. 

The “4040 House Holiday Lights” is a stunning spectacle that’s been an entire year in the making. Kent Stroker and Ryan Olson say they simply wanted to spread some joy this year and have more than 44,000 LED lights. 

The display can be seen at 4040 47th Ave SW in Seattle. 

Nearly 2 miles of cables traverse the property and are controlled by six units and a master software program that synchronizes the lights to music. Despite the impressive technology, the entire show uses less energy than three strings of incandescent lights and two inflatable yard displays. 

A 25-foot “mega tree” is hard to miss and features a lifelike projection of a dancing Santa. Special emoji figures even sing to popular songs and an LED screen on the home features the lyrics for a family sing-a-long. 

Every prop in the yard has an action that's part of the show. 

A radio signal allows guests to enjoy the roughly 40-minute show from their car. A playlist includes holiday classics and some new twists. 

The show runs nightly from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. 

Spectators can watch from their vehicles or take in the show from the sidewalk where they have some speakers for music. Stroker and Olson might even join you with their corgis.
