Ken Hocking has been busy all year adding more lights to his Christmas display on Baynes Street, Rochester.
The Hockings on Baynes St, Rochester have come up with a new theme this year: ‘‘Christmas is family’’.
Ken and Heather Hocking spent the entire year creating new features for their Christmas exhibition to accommodate visitors in the lead up to Christmas.
Mr Hocking has been busy setting up a laser display at the back of his house which he said was the biggest and brightest to date.
He came up with the idea of a Christmas exhibition five years ago when he discovered he had a brain tumour.
Since then he has been adding to the displays and had to entirely revamp the toy train system on show in his garage this year after it was damaged in the January 2011 flood.
Fairy floss will be given out at Hockings on Christmas Eve and also on December 23 from 8pm onwards.
