SPRING LAKE, Mich. (WZZM) - A Spring Lake homeowner wants to shut down his neighborhood's popular Christmas lights display, but the organizer of the event isn't backing down.
Brad Boyink started the "Holiday Road" Christmas synchronized light show five years ago. As the event gained in popularity, he managed to convince every house on Heather Court in Sprink Lake to take part. An estimated 70,000 people visit the display each year, but one homeowner on Heather Court wants to take Brad Boyink - to court.
"They feel the show is a nuisance," says Boyink, speaking about the lone house which decided not to participate this year.
Boyink adds that the lone neighbor has a list of reasons for not participating.
"It creates congestion in the neighborhood; it doesn't belong here; it's an inconvenience to them [the non-participating neighbor]; and they just don't want to see it here," says Boyink.
