STAMFORD - Residents in one section of Stamford have been enjoying an ever-growing holiday display since the 1980s.

The iconic light display is located at 68 Lewelyn Road. Homeowner Anthony Pampena says the display – comprised of about 58,000 lights circling the house from top to bottom -- is the result of about 600 hours of work over two months.

He says he loves making thousands of people happy each year.

Besides holiday cheer, Pampena says the display has provided complete strangers with memories they'll never forget, like wedding proposals.

Pampena has been a firefighter for about 26 years.
