Not only is this weekend the last one to check out the 300,000 Christmas lights on government buildings downtown, it’s also the last weekend to see this display at Mark Bell’s house on Markland Cres. (near Mayford) in Barrhaven:
Mark says there are about 6,000 LED lights along with lasers and other decorations, including a 3.5-metre tall Christmas tree. An if you tune your car radio to 95.5 FM, you can hear a live soundtrack to the lights.
So if you experienced brownouts in Barrhaven in the past few weeks, now you know why.
