Where’s Amy?: Reynolds’ Farm holiday display


“Where’s Amy?” … I was excited to attend the 23rd annual Reynolds free light display in Fishers. The Reynolds Farm Equipment store has been a fixture in the Fishers Community for many years and people drive from all over the country just to see the display, which centers around a large white cross. Joe Reynolds , 94, and the oldest living Reynolds sibling, was at the festivities to “flip the switch” among the many generations of family and friends that attended. The colorful lights and displays quickly illuminated the sky and soon after car loads of families entered the new magical layout that runs east to west off of 37 and just south of 126th Street on the Reynolds’ spacious property. Grandson of the late A.W. “Mac” and Arlene Reynolds, Michael Lawson of Noblesville, said he was thrilled with the new layout and hopes the returning guests will notice the new displays and lights. I enjoyed checking out the magnificent fixtures hours before the nightfall and enjoyed meeting Jordan Rich who was putting together the final touches. The massive sculptures are larger than life and it was a treat to see them shine so brightly on a cold and beautiful November night. When you drive through the display be sure to bring a few non-perishable goods (and/or monetarily gifts) which will be donated to the local Fishers ‘Come-to Me Food Pantry’. Authorized volunteers will be on the grounds to answer questions and pass out information about the food pantry’s local services to the community. Santa will also be making a special appearance at the store on Dec. 4 and 11 from 6 – 9 p.m. Be sure to grab your family and drive through the spectacular displays as you will be grinning from ear to ear. In the midst of the crazy holiday season, it’s wonderful to witness a family tradition that continues to teach us to appreciate life and pay it forward.
