For the third consecutive year, Ronald and Jackie Detwiler, along with son-in-law Chris Waller, have set up the synchronized light and music show at their 1441 Sycamore St. home. With nearly 25,000 lights — 10,000 more than last year — and over 100 cars a night, Christmas on Sycamore has become a notable Turlock holiday event. The light show now features Santa Claus every night it doesn’t rain. They also hand out candy canes, and last year handed out more than 5,000 sweets to those who stopped by. They aim to double that amount this year.
