Overly's Country Christmas began when Harry Overly first decorated his rural Armbrust home with just a few strands of lights and has grown into one of the Pittsburgh area's most cherished holiday light show traditions. The display now features over 1.7 million twinkling lights. If all the strands of lights were put end-to-end it would stretch to Mars (Mars, Pennsylvania, anyway). The display has moved from the Overly home and now lights up 15 acres of the Westmoreland Fairgrounds. It includes 5 acres accessible as a park and walk-through feature.
