Several hundred people lined the street in Beacon Hill subdivision in Stratford Saturday night to watch the first night of an extraordinary Christmas light show in aid of the P.E.I Heart and Stroke Foundation that is hosted by Landon Holmes and his family. Last year he raised more than $4,000 for the foundation and hopes to raise more this year. All the money comes from donations from people who come to 13 Beacon Hill Drive to watch the show. The 30,000 LED lights are synched to Christmas music and flash on and off during the 20 minute show.
