Mark and Tracy Zembruski are lighting up their corner of the world again – for a good cause.
The extravagant holiday lights display at their Woodinville house features more than 100,000 lights that dance to music in a display that includes Santa and Snoopy. Putting on the display has become a year-round hobby for them.
The Zembruskis also accept donations for the Special Olympics, collecting thousands of dollars for the organization.
For the past 15 years, the Zembruski home has garnered attention from the community and the media. The house is on a private road at 23620 NE 183rd Street and the couple asks that visitors be courteous to their neighbors and other guests.
Now two weeks into their season, they've had some challenges including a power outage, a generator on the fritz, and some windy weather, according to a post on their blog.
"(It) has not slowed down the crowds down too much, but we are off a bit from last year... All told, we have had more issues than usual, but again, you roll with it and put your best foot forward."
They expect this weekend to be their busiest. Extended display hours are now in effect:
Sunday to Monday - 5pm to 10pm
Friday & Saturday - 5pm to 11pm
