A KEITH man whose Christmas lights draw visitors from near and far has unveiled his 2019 festive display.
Callum Stuart's illuminations have once again lit up the skies over the town's Seafield Park, at the south of the town on the A96.
Callum (20) lives with his granny Jessie and put on his first major display in 2015.
He said: "I was interested in lights and electrics before I could walk so putting on a display was always going to happen, I just never realised it would be on this scale.
"The lights take me roughly a month to put up and connect, but the planning and maintenance are constant throughout the year.
"I'm fortunate to have had help in the run up to the switch on from my granny and my better half, along with a few other family members.
"This year we're raising money for a local charity – Keith Cancer Link. We have a donation box on the front wall which raised an amazing £2050 last year for the Sunshine Playgroup."
The lights were officially switched on at the end of last week to great applause.
Callum said: "Feedback has been great so far, I've spoken to people from far and near who come out specially. There's a constant stream of cars taking a detour from the A96 up to have a look."
The lights will be on every day from 4-10pm until January 5.
