Congratulations to Darryl Lambert of Georgetown, Ontario, Canada, who has won the title “Canada’s Most Outrageous Holiday Home Decorator”,  after a nation-wide search by website OutrageousLights.ca.

After a two-week  search with nominations from Canadians,  Lambert’s home was chosen from a list of eight finalists. “Runners-up include Maisie’s Christmas House in Edmonton and the home of Cynthia and Ron Demers in Milton, Ont., which boasts 31 elaborately decorated Christmas trees.”

If you would like to experience this amazing Outrageous Lights spectacle, Lambert’s home is located at 14 Johnson Crescent in Georgetown, 20 minutes west of Toronto. It has the following features:

  • more than 45,000 lights intricately choreographed to festive music with a techno beat
  • the display uses nearly 1,000 meters of extension cord,
  • 230 dimmer channels,
  • 26,000 LEDs and
  • more than 10,000 mini lights
  • visitors are able to tune their car radios to an FM radio signal to hear the synchronized music

His annual light show has been glowing and growing in size, brilliance and holiday joy as both musical entertainment and valuable fundraiser for the community hospital. In 2009, Lambert raised funds to the tune of nearly $8,000 for the Georgetown hospital foundation.

By the way, Lambert won $1,000 worth of Christmas movie memorabilia donated by RetroFestive.ca, including a life-size leg lamp inspired by the movie A Christmas Story and a set of Clark Griswold moose mugs, like the ones seen in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
