A friendly Christmas light display competition between two brothers in the same Georgetown Township cul-de-sac.

GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Driving along Sun Meadow Lane near Hudsonville, one may believe they've arrived at an air strip.

It's not of course.  The bright lights are actually part of dueling holiday light displays created by two brothers living on the same cul-de-sac.

"He started programming them to music, so about three years ago, we started following along," said Todd Tuttle.

Visitors who drive by the displays are encouraged to donate money.  All of the proceeds go to several groups and charities, including Hudsonville Christian School, and the 20 Liters Water Project, through Mars Hill Bible Church.

"We have a donation box, we take checks, we don't take anything out of the donations for the show, or electrical, it all goes straight to charity," added Scott Tuttle.

The electricity bill is hefty for Scott Tuttle.  He estimates his 30,000 light display costs an extra $250 a month to power.

"It really is a good cause in the end, and a lot of people enjoy the light show," said Todd Tuttle.
