Frerichs Family Has Displayed Christmas Lights For 35 Years


(Le Mars) — On the west edge of Le Mars as you drive out of town on Highway 3, there sits a large exhibit of Christmas lights and displays on the south side of the roadway.  Mark and Sheri Frerichs began their elaborate Christmas lights display 35 years ago, and Mark says he isn’t certain as to how many lights he owns.

Frerichs explains how the elaborate display of Christmas lights got its start.

Much like other large Christmas display exhibits within the area, Frerichs says his display of lights has become a tourist attraction and has brought people to Le Mars from several miles.

Frerichs says he begins setting up the display in October.

Frerichs says the large Christmas light display will remain on exhibit through the Epiphany season.

Frerichs says he usually adds additional displays to the ever expanding exhibit each year.
