Christmas Lights light up Schneider Home

Christmas Lights light up the Schneider home.  Chris says it's nearly impossible to catch a photo where all of the more than 7000 lights are lit at the same time.

(Alexandria, MN)  Just a few years ago Alexandria alumnus Chris Schneider  was preparing for a special event in Minneapolis.  You may have heard of it.  It was Superbowl 52 and then Air Force Master Sgt. Chris Schneider was part of the F-16 Vipor Demo Team.  He helped organize and promote the team's events throughout the country and beyond.  Now, after retiring from the Air Force Chris has moved back home and is looking for some traditions that he missed out on during his two decades of military service.  One of those things was the set-up of a grandiose Christmas display.  His step-father Bob Sardiff was notorious for his lights set to music out at a home near Lake Brophy.  Cars would be lined up for blocks just waiting to see and hear the display.  Several years ago that tradition went away.

However, this year Chris committed to returning the music and lights show, at his home.  With Bob's help, and his brothers Dillyn and Cody (who flew in from long distances to help) they put up a display worth the wait.

The Holiday light show is at 1106 Brigitta Drive NE in Alexandria.  Chris says the show is up and running, from now until Jan 1st.

The show is roughly 30 min of music timed to lights. Once there you can tune in to 102.9fm for the music! The hours are Sunday through Thursday 5-9pm, and Friday through Saturday 5-10pm.
