Update: The Thediecks have decided to retire from the Tacky Light Tour as of 2019.

"We have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this Richmond tradition for the past 15 years, but I guess all good things must come to an end," Henry Thedieck said. "Our family enjoyed bringing Christmas cheer to the Richmond community."

Their house was known for the lights reflecting in the lake in the West End.


Original story from 2017:

Check out the Thediecks' home from Maybeury Drive, which is the only way to see the lights. They have 100,000 lights that reflect in the lake behind the house. They will light up Nov. 26, the Sunday after Thanksgiving through Jan. 1.

Their display changes every year.

Area of town: Best viewed from Maybuery Drive

Hours: Dark until 10:30 p.m., later on the weekends
