For the past 12 years people from around the area have stopped by the Alan Chmielewski home on Kennedy Avenue and 23rd Street in Bismarck to make a Christmas memory. Chmielewski said it takes nearly a dozen family members more than two months to set up the annual Chmielewski Christmas lights display that he said can draw up to 1000 people of all ages on any given night. "What I like to see is the smile on the kids faces and the adults as well," said Chmielewski while working on the display's roller coaster. Other sights include a ferris wheel, a ski lift and a life size dancing Santa. And the obvious question of how much is his MDU electric bill? "It's not too bad," said Chmielewski who keeps the lights on from 6 p.m. to midnight through the Christmas season. For more photographs go to www.bismarcktribune.com.
