OLD HICKORY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Strong winds Monday damaged a local light display dedicated to the memory of a child killed by a car three years ago.

London’s Lights, a display of thousands of holiday lights northeast of downtown Nashville, flipped the switch on the lights Thanksgiving evening.

The Henn family puts the lights up every year in honor of their daughter London, who would have been five this Christmas. Click here to visit the London’s Lights Facebook page.

This year’s display had more than 100,000 lights at the Henns’ home at 513 Granwood Boulevard in Nashville

The display was a combination of 120 hours of work, 4,000 staples, and 7 miles of lights.

They had to be turned off Sunday night due to the severe weather.

The wind blew over reindeer, Christmas trees and lollipops covered in lights. An arch across the driveway was destroyed, and a sign dedicated to a little boy who’s a family friend and a sign on the roof are damaged.

London’s father, Brad Henn, told News 2 he thinks most of it can be repaired. He hopes to have the lights back on Monday night.

You’re invited to drive by and see the lights. The family is also collecting toys that will be donated to children at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.
