About Christmas in the Grove

Christmas in the Grove grew from our family's love of Christmas time, and a youthful desire to someday have "One of those displays".

The show begins on Thanksgiving night and runs through January 1 from 6:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Monday - Thursday and 6:30 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. Friday - Sunday, weather permitted.

Our show has evolved from simple animation in 2010, to a light show, choreographed to some of the greatest Christmas music ever! The sound from our show can be heard in our yard and is also broadcast on 87.9 FM so that you can listen from the comfort of your car. This year our show features a custom version of "The House On Christmas Street" by Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Judy Pancoast and voiceovers by The Demented Elf.

We'd like to thank our family, friends and extraordinary neighbors for their help, patience, kind words and inspiration. Our show would not have grown to be what it is without the smiles of all the children who come by and the wonderful feedback we've received.

Since we begun collecting donations for our favorite charity, The The ALS Association of Georgia, we have raised $2800. All donations are graciously accepted with 100% going to the Association, in hopes that one day we will defeat ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).

On behalf of our entire family we would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and hope we'll see you at Christmas in the Grove.

—Tony & Katie Paradowski
