Opening weekend for "Gift of Lights" display at Speedway


LOUDON - The holiday season is shining bright at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The speedway opened their annual "Gift of Lights" display this weekend, and hundreds of guests made the trip to see the incredible displays - which continue for more than 2 miles and features more than 2 million LED lights.

"The kids love it - the bright lights, the different scenes, [we] just talked to Santa Claus and you know, it's a good thing overall," said Lee Bruno, who brought his family to see the lights from Waterville Valley.

Proceeds raised are given back to children in need.

"Since we've started in 2010, we've been able to give out just under a million dollars to non-profit children organizations," said Cheryl LaPrade of the NH Speedway Children's Charities organization.

The event continues until the first week of January.
