GRAYSON COUNTY, TX -- The Holiday Lights display near Denison will be open for three more nights.

County officials extended the run after missing six days due to the ice storm, and with Thanksgiving falling late on the calendar.

Even though it's free to visit, we're told the lights cost up to $60,000 to operate each year, including the electric bill, new displays, and overtime for maintenance crews. This year, they even had to get 15,000 new light bulbs.

"This is to allow the people to come through and see it again and to have some more time to collect some more donations," says county purchasing agent Jeff Schneider. "We're really falling short on donations this year, which is not a major issue, but it may cause us to not be able to buy as many new displays for next year."

Right now, Schneider says they are about $10,000 to $15,000 behind in donations. The lights will be open until Sunday night at Loy Lake Park.
