It has become a staple in not only North Alabama but across the southeast – thousands of people a year flock to Ballplay to view what is one of the most popular and unique Christmas light displays in America – the JC Gilley family even won ABC’s ‘Great Christmas Light Fight’ in 2018.
On Monday, Lisa Gilley issued a statement to WEIS informing us that they we will not be running the lights this year.
The Gilley family says that they sincerely apologize but because of health issues and COVID-19, they are unable to do them.
Lisa Gilley says she and the rest of the family hopes to see everyone next year as they are praying that 2021 is a better year for everyone.
The JC Gilley Family wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
