Three generations of the Motz family help set up the 2018 display.

Laurel Avenue Lights, at the home of Rich and Wendy Motz, will kick off its 2018 season with a concert on Dec. 1 at 6 p.m.

Singer/songwriter Judy Pancoast is returning for another holiday engagement. While waiting for the show to start, attendees can enjoy acappella holiday tunes and caroling with local quartet Sum of Each, and free cookies and hot chocolate. Then, both light shows will be run.

The address is 659 Laurel Ave., Lititz; the road will be closed to all traffic that night. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring folding chairs.

“Pancoast lives in New Hampshire and joined us last year on her first stop on a nationwide charity tour doing free concerts all around the country,” said Wendy Motz. “This will be the sixth year of running a light show not only choreographed to music but using props to go along with each song. One of the new features this year are six short stands along the sidewalk with large red buttons that the children can safely push and make different things in the display light up.”

Judy Pancoast, shown here performing at the 2017 Laurel Avenue Lights, will return for another free concert on Dec. 1. The show officially starts at 6 p.m., but there will free refreshments and acappella entertainment/caroling prior to the concert.

“A special thank you to Bomberger’s and Stray Lighting for their support of the show,” she added. “There are two different half-hour shows that alternate each night from 5:30 to 10 p.m.”

Both shows will be run on Dec. 1.

The concert and month-long light show are accepting donations that will benefit the Lititz Fire Company.
