Local Holiday Display Set To Be Featured on ‘The Doctors’
Keith Shaw's Holiday Display in Cranbury is set to be featured on the CBS show The Doctors. The show will air 9 a.m. Dec. 1.
Once you have gobbled up the turkey and embarked on your Black Friday adventures, take a drive out to the display at 128 Main Street in Cranbury for its official opening weekend and get in the spirit of the season.
Every year, Shaw transforms his home into a Winter Wonderland with 120,000 lights, choreographed music, and a 36-foot-tall “mega-tree”—which boasts more lights than the one at Rockefeller center. Dress warm! On cold nights, there are fire pits and marshmallows for roasting as well.
Shaw's Christmas display was honored last year by Travel and Leisure in a list that picked the best lights of each state, and it's all for a good cause. The display is free, but donations are accepted and it all goes to charity.Last year, the family donated $20,052.40 to the Food Bank.
Selected dates are available for vistors to take a backstage tour of this "Broadway" like show. Included in the VIP tour--which is yours for a charitable donation--is a walk with the Shaws backstage to see how it all works including photo opportunities, and inside look at the 50,000 light Mega Tree and VIP parking,
The first lighting will take place at 6 p.m. Nov. 26. The show runs from 6 to 9 p.m. nightly. Parking is free, but there are designated areas and cleardirections on the website. The home is located at 128 N. Main Street, Cranbury.
