Vernon’s Voila Christmas display lives on at O’Keefe Ranch

O’Keefe Ranch will welcome all to the fundraiser in December

A renowned local light show has packed up its holiday decor, but the show must go on.

The Voila Dancing Christmas Lights, which ignited Voila Hair Studio and Spa at 4105 Pleasant Valley Road every year, have been loaded into four storage containers on their way to their new home at O’Keefe Ranch.

Voila Hair Studio owners have designed the annual light show, but the increased traffic flow and accessibility has caused the show to uproot.

“O’Keefe Ranch has the space for our light display to grow and accommodate the amount of people that want to see it; we just wanted it to stay a part of our community” said Suzanne Robert, Voila owner.

With the help of Suzanne and Mark Robert, O’Keefe Ranch will open the light display fundraiser to the public next December.

“We are so excited for the opportunity to offer this to our community and are grateful to Mark and Suzanne who will stay a part of the design and development of the Christmas Display,” said Anita Kuipers, events and volunteer coordinator at the Ranch.

O’Keefe Ranch is looking for donations of quality used lights and artificial Christmas trees to grow the display. Elephant Storage has donated temporary storage of the Christmas lights until O’Keefe Ranch can find a more permanent storage solution that will house the whole display all in one place.

To donate or sponsor the event, call the Ranch at 250-542-7868.
