Senske Festival of Lights

KENNEWICK, Wash.-160,000 LED lights will be dancing to music in Kennewick Friday night.

Senske Lawn and Tree Care's Festival of Lights and canned food drive will be going on from 6 to 8.

The company used technology found in major theme parks to time their lights with Christmas songs on FM 100.1.

Senske's spokesperson says it takes 1,000 man-hours to put up the display, but it's rewarding work.

"Any time you can see joy in the face of that many people, especially the little kids. They get really excited when Santa steps out. That's what makes it worth it," says Communication Manager Tom Perkes.

Last year Senske donated 2,000 lbs. of food to Second Harvest, this year they're aiming for 2,500.

The Festival of Lights is on Deschutes Avenue between Kellogg Street and Columbia Center Boulevard.
