When I saw this video being shared on Facebook, I couldn't believe it was only an hour from St. Cloud and I had never heard of it before.

The "Celebrate The Light of the World" Christmas light display has been taking place in Willmar, Minnesota for over a decade.

For the last ten years, the Celebrate the Light of the World Christmas light display has happened at the Home of Chad and Angie Koosman. It started out as something that they really enjoyed doing, as they are a bit goofy when it comes to Christmas lights. Over the past few years, their display has evolved to the point that we feel that it should be shared with everyone, and used to inspire and inform others about the Joy of Giving. This year Chand and Angie made the decision to hand the Christmas Lights into the care of Willmar Fests and they have brought the Celebrate the Light of the World Christmas Light Display to Robbins Island in Willmar for everyone to see.

The lights are not only amazing to see, but also synced to music! For the first half of "Dancing Lights" tune your radio to 88.7 fm, and for the second half tune your radio to 90.3 fm.

This year, the committee behind Willmar Fest will be honoring the people who started it all, Angie and Chad Koosman, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday December 1st at 4:45 pm.

Load up the family, grab the hot cocoa and see it for yourself this year! The light display runs from Thanksgiving through January 6th from 5-10 pm.
