For the fourth year in a row, Luke Dobson, 15, who attends Dover High, decorated his parents' house at 23 Overlook Drive with 8,000 lights and synchronized them to holiday music — playing on his own "local radio station" at 106.9 FM which broadcasts in the neighborhood — to solicit donations to help local families in need.
Aside from inclement weather, the performance is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
"We have a lot of kids — that's our highest demographic," Dodson said, adding many nursing homes and senior centers plan trips to have residents enjoy the lights.
"We have some pop, some rock and some slower music," Dobson said, adding the seven-song loop — which includes "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Do You See What I See?" — and accompanying light show lasts just over 30 minutes.
