Ferrysburg lights?

Andrea of Spring Lake asked, "It seems to me that the house in Ferrysburg that used to have an amazing array of Christmas lights and yard decorations no longer displays them around Christmas time. Is this true?"

She continued: "If so, how long has it been and why did they stop? I remember my parents packing us kids in the car when I was younger to drive out there and see the lights."


I remember that awesome light display, too. It was not far from the fuel terminals, right?

Ferrysburg City Manager Craig Bessinger said the homeowner who lived in the 200 block of Evergreen St., near Bilz Plumbing on Second Street, used to have a large light display. That's probably the one we're remembering.

Bessinger said he's not sure why the display was switched off, but the husband died a few years ago. I tried calling the listed phone number for the house, but it's been oddly "busy" for nearly a week.

I'm fairly certain, the house you're thinking of is that of my husband's grandparents. :) I unfortunately never got to see the awesome display (I met my husband after his grandfather passed), but I have heard so many wonderful stories about it. Maybe I can convince my husband to start it back up :)
