ALTOONA, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – In this hometown holidays, one Altoona family is once again showing plenty of holiday cheer in their front yard. First News at Nine’s Max Cotton has more on what has become an annual holiday tradition.
Drive by the Wendts, and you’ll now find a winter wonderland. For the fourth year in a row, the Altoona family has filled up its front yard with plenty of holiday cheer and Matt Wendt will tell you, ‘it never gets old’.
“It impresses me every time I turn them on. It’s just amazing that everything works together,” said Wendt.
For those who drive by the home along moonlight bay drive they’ll see plenty of flashing LED lights, which are set to music that’s heard on the radio.
“So we put in the song and we got a program that takes all the beats out of the music and then we tell the lights to turn on or off at those certain times and then we also can put things on our matrixes, pictures to come up at the beats of the music. So, it’s all synchronized together,” said Wendt.
This was the first time Todd and Danielle Boos stopped by the display, and they weren’t disappointed.
“It’s just something different. It’s something you don’t see everywhere, and it keeps the kids attention and we enjoy it,” said Danielle Boos.

A little cheer, during this holiday season.
Danielle Boos said, “Thank you, cause it’s something that we can all enjoy and they must have put a lot of time and effort into it and it’s something that everyone around can come out and do together and be together as a family.”
Wendt hopes to see more cars in front of his property, with people enjoying his hard work.
“I love it when they all come out. The more, the merrier. Just keep your headlights off and don’t bother other people when you’re out here,” said Wendt.
