Holiday light show benefits Black Diamond Food Bank

The Very Merry Christmas House is having its light show until Jan. 3, 2020.

If you’re looking for a way to both enjoy the Christmas season and help out a local nonprofit organization, then the Very Merry Christmas House is right up your alley.

Located just south of Covington (30211 176th Ave. SE Covington), the Very Merry Christmas House showcases more than 50,000 lights synchronized to classic holiday music.

The free show began on Nov. 28, but runs all through Jan. 3; time of operation is from dusk until 11:30 p.m.

When you head to the show, make sure to bring some non-perishable food donations, which will benefit the Black Diamond Community Center’s food bank.
