CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The legendary holiday lighting display on Crown Point Parkway is up.
“I’m always the first guy to get going,” Strongsville resident Dan Hoag said. “I have quite a bit of stuff.”
That may be an understatement for the man who started his 2018 Christmas light display on Aug. 25.
Hoag started decorating in 1988 trying to win the neighborhood lighting contest.
“I didn’t win that year, so it aggravated me, I made sure to win the next two or three years," Hoag joked.
Neighbors and visitors line the cul-de-sac that share Hoag’s passion with a handful of homes blanketed in holiday cheer.
Visitors aren’t asked for anything however, Hoag does accept donations for two of the street’s residents who are battling cancer.
“They can donate, that’s the beautiful thing about it, it’s completely free. Come as often as you like, if you want to make a donation, if you don’t we’re still happy you came by,” Hoag said standing in front of his lit up yard.
