The news of a popular Christmassy house in Chilliwack opening early this year is music to many people’s ears.
The house on Diamond Crescent mixes music and lights for a unique and festive Christmas light show choreographed to music. When folks pull up to the house, they can tune in to their FM radio to “hear the lights” from their vehicle.
Typically the musical light show opens to the public on Dec. 1 every year, but it’s open early this year due to the pandemic. The owners announced it on their public Facebook page “Diamond Crescent Musical Christmas Lights.”
“Our current COVID pandemic has really cut down on the places we can go for fun outings, so we’ve decided to open this Friday, Nov. 27 rather than usual first of December to give perhaps stir-crazy Chilliwack residents a change of scenery,” the post reads.
There is a box outside the house for cash donations for the Chilliwack Firefighters Charitable Society. People can also donate online at diamondcrescent.com, and the money will also go to the the firefighters charitable society.
“This upcoming Friday may be commonly known as Black Friday, but we’re calling it Bright Friday!”
The owners are asking visitors to view the lights from their vehicles, turn their headlights and engines off, park in a respectful manner so as to not block the view for others, and keep their stereo volume down.

The house is located at 7620 Diamond Cres. People can drive up and tune in from Friday, Nov. 27 until Thursday, Dec. 31.
Hours are: Sunday to Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Dec. 24 and 25 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
