HANSEN, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — One of the biggest Christmas light displays in the area won’t be happening this year.

The Rock Creek General Store in Hansen will not be having its annual Christmas light display this year. General Manager Paul Brady said normally the Wojcik family puts on the light show, but they are no longer with the General Store.

Brady adds the store just doesn’t have the funding and manpower to put up the lights as nicely as the family has in the past.

“Without sounding too much like a scrooge, that’s kind of where we’re at this year,” Brady said. “I didn’t want everybody to head this direction and get very disappointed because with the times everybody’s looking for a little Christmas joy and some fun. Unfortunately it’s not going to be out here this year.”

Brady says he hopes to keep the light tradition going in future years.
