Bogdan Farm Christmas Music & Light Show Extravaganza Now Open
BERWICK - As you plan your holiday activities this December, make sure to make time to visit the Bogdan Farm at the intersection of Rochester Street and Hubbard Road. Chuck and Pamela Bogdan have been creating large scale outdoor Christmas light displays since 1997, adding and expanding over the years. This unrivaled computerized display now boasts singing faces and singing trees that dance to Christmas music, along with reindeer, penguins, peppermint canes and more!
Although there will be Christmas music playing outside, to get the full effect, tune in to FM 90.3 when driving by the Bogdan’s display so you can hear the singing faces and Christmas trees as they sing and dance to your favorite holiday songs past and present.
If you can, please stop by and show your appreciation for this free family event by donating either a toy or a non-perishable food item. Enjoy the sights and sound of the holiday but remember those less fortunate by supporting the Bogdan’s Toys for Tots drive and local food pantry collection. Your thoughtfulness and generosity will ensure that there will be Christmas presents for families who have trouble making ends meet this year.
This annual Christmas extravaganza will only be up and running through December 24th, so don’t delay. More information is available at facebook.com/BogdanChristmasLights/
