Log Run Lights is private family home located on the Westside of Indianapolis in Clermont, IN. The Christmas lights take appox. 3 weeks to put up and a team of over 25 people.
Rick & Debbie Warrum, owners, have been putting up Christmas lights for over 16 years and in the past 3 years changed to LED lights which have cut the electrical bill in half.
Rick built the light frames to withstand wind and snow. He and his team also built the huge arch over Log Run Drive, the steel North Pole carport, nutcracker, Santa’s mailbox, and donation box. The Nutcracker, named Selic, is an interactive attraction where children walking by can lift his beard to receive a candy cane treat. In 2020, Selic has given out over 4,000 candy canes!
Santa and his team, lead by Rudolf, fly over the display attached to over 20 ft. tall scaffolding.
“When I was a kid, there was always something magical about seeing lights at Christmas time. I have very fond memories of that,” Rick says. He continues to put up lights for the sheer joy to bless adults and children with something he has always been so fond of.
