Darling's gets into holiday spirit with over 22,000 lights

BANGOR - There's quite a glow coming from the Darling's car dealership on the Sylvan Road, and it's not from the shiny new and used cars and trucks on the lot. The Bangor car dealership decided to go all out this holiday season and decorate its Honda Nissan Volvo shop in over 22,000 Christmas lights.

"We always try to do something fun this time of year," said Ron Russell, director of Bangor operations at Darling's. "We really wanted to do something entertaining that will thrill our customers, friends and neighbors for the entire month, not just an hour.'

So besides the decorations which include Santa and his reindeer, the dealership put its numerous Christmas lights to music. When visitors stop by and tune into 95.1 FM between 4 and 11 p.m. each evening, they are treated to a choreographed light show that is synced up to songs such as "Deck the Halls" and other holiday favorites.

"It's really been a team effort," said Matt Smith, marketing manager at Darling's. "We came up with the idea about a month ago, and since then we've been planning and programming the music and lights."

The Darling's staff plans to run the light show nightly until the New Year. Those who stop by between 4 p.m. and the close of business each night can get a free cup of coffee, hot chocolate, cookies or a warm roll with butter.

"We're hoping lots of our customers and friends will stop by to check it out and just enjoy

the holidays with us," said Smith.
