La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) ---- A house on La Crosse's Northside is getting a lot of attention this year for its holiday lights display.
Steve Oyer lives on Rose Street a busy street that gets a lot of traffic. Every year Steve and his family brave the cold to make sure kids get a glimpse of Santa. Steve said his light display is proof that something good can come from a setback.
It's waves, screams and beeps that make Steve Oyer's day.
"I love getting the reaction from the people. That's what it's all about." Steve started with a string of lights and it grew from there. "You can make them fade on, fade off, blink, twinkle, just about anything you want to do."
The Northside's Northpole attracts a lot of attention and fortunately Steve's neighbors are more than ok with it.
Jim Donnell lives next door. He decorates now too. "It brightens up the neighborhood and I'm a little kid at heart."
Steve says he'll keep doing this until the public and his neighbors get sick of it but he doesn't think that's going to happen anytime soon.
Steve will keep the lights on until January 1st.
The address is 213 Rose Street.
