It May Be Lights Out For Ohio Holiday Show

MASON, Ohio (AP) - Unless a new host is found, darkness may come to a popular holiday lights show that started with an Ohio man's electrifying home display.

Carson Williams drew international attention three years ago when he lit up his home northeast of Cincinnati with 25,000 lights synchronized to music. Spectators overwhelmed the neighborhood.

So Williams pulled the plug and moved an expanded version of the display to a park in suburban Mason.

Now the small nonprofit group that's been putting on the show says it's too big to handle. The display drew 80,000 cars and about 250,000 visitors last year.

Festivals of Mason President Scott Pierce says his group hopes a large sponsor will step in so the show can go on at another location this year.
