What started out as a way to entice trick-or-treaters to take a trip out of town, has grown into a fun hobby for one Garland Road family in Corinth.

We first told you about the Boddys about a year ago.

The family had moved to Corinth in 2018, and only ever had a handful of families stop by to trick-or-treat on Halloween.

Steven Boddy said when Covid hit in 2020, and everyone was feeling the sting of isolation, he and his family started to think about ways to spread a little Halloween cheer, and came up with the idea for a holiday light show...spooky style.

"We're kind of rural. We're out there. But this year we're just hoping to get some kids. Because kids today are losing trick-or-treating, and we want them to enjoy going out, [and] seeing the cool displays that are around. Because that's part of the fun of the holidays."


With a couple of years now under their belts, the Boddys have decided to go a bit bigger with this year's display.

"This year we are starting Saturday the 15 from 6-10 and running the show through October 31. We have added over a [thousand] new lights including a 12 ft tall mega tree."

After the leaves have all fallen off the trees (probably sooner rather than later as we have some wind and rain in the forecast) you'll still have some fun fall colors to enjoy. You'll just have to wait till the sun goes down for these ones.
