Community Light Show

For the third year Pine Knoll Landscape and Hardscape Center, 143 Lisbon Road (Rt.196)  Lisbon, has produced a Christmas Light Show as a gift to the area. This years show features,  4 musical pieces, a dialogue with Able Stable, a 25' decorated Christmas tree with over 15,000 lights.  Also new this year is the "Talking Barn" and enclosed Nativity Scene.   What started out as a father and two sons putting up lights for christmas three years ago, has grown to a light show which takes a crew days to put into place and hours upon hours of programming by a good friend. The show runs nightly from 5:00-9:30 and can be heard by tuning your radio to 88.7 FM.  Parking is available off the road across from the Shop.
