SPRING LAKE, Mich. (AP) -- A West Michigan man's annual high-tech Christmas lights display is up and running again.

Months ago, a team of 150 volunteers helped Brad Boyink start stringing up nearly 300,000 LED lights around his Spring Lake home, plus 13 other houses in his cul-de-sac neighborhood.  Click here for a link to the Facebook page.

The 42-year-old Boyink tells The Grand Rapids Press his Holiday Road Lights show is one of the largest neighborhood computerized displays in the country. Boyink uses 64 control computers for the show.

It might be March by the time the display is completely taken down.

The show is free, although donations are accepted. All proceeds will be donated to the Special Olympics.

Boyink raised about $140,000 for local charities in the first five years of the show.

All visitors receive a candy cane.
