JACKSON COUNTY, MS (MSNewsNow) - A Jackson County family is using their dancing holiday light display to help two charities.

The Barton home in Moss Point is dazzling every night with a beautiful Christmas light display benefiting the St. Jude's Children's Hospital and the Make A Wish Foundation.

Last year the family decided to add dancing lights to their holiday setup and add a donation drive to help the charities. The celebratory lights helped the family collect $700, and this year, they're hoping to do even better.

"It's pretty awesome to be able to do something like this. I would hope to at least do the same if not better [than last year]. My thought is that everybody who saw it last year will come back and then tell their friends and it continues to grow," predicts homeowner Joshua Barton.

Light viewers are welcome to come by the house each evening from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The home is on River Pine Drive in Moss Point.
