JACKSON, MO (KFVS) - A musical light show at a home in Jackson, Missouri is drawing all kinds of attention and helping a good cause.

It's easy to say the Hubbard family loves lights and anyone that drives by their home on Jennifer Drive at night can see it.

"It started with a little show 3 years ago and it's built up to this," Brian Hubbard said.

But this isn't just any Christmas display, anyone can tune their car radio to 92.1FM to enjoy the sounds of the season and watch the lights dance in sync to each song.

It's not an easy task.

"You have to program every 20th of a second," Hubbard said. "So it probably takes me over 20 hours to program each song."

Not only that, each string of lights has to be individually programmed.

And if you're wondering how Brian Hubbard learned to do this?

"Youtube, hours and hours of watching youtube videos," Hubbard said.

The show runs from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. nightly through New Years.

But the Hubbard family is doing more than just sharing their joy of the holidays on their lawn, a donation box is located in the front for people to donate to CarePortal.

CarePortal is a nonprofit organization that works with child welfare agencies in the state to provide help for local children and families in need through area churches.

"We just thought why not try to give back to needy families and it's all local," Angela Hubbard said.

Needless to say, the Hubbard's are definitely letting their light shine this holiday season and the community is taking notice.

"When you walk out here at night and you hear a kids in a car screaming that makes it all worth it," Brian Hubbard said.

"Everyone thinks we have Santa at our house and he is here to visit," Angela Hubbard said.
