Germantown Family Celebrates the Holidays and Tradition With Extravagant Light Display

The Salgado family of Germantown has had a Christmas light display as far back as they can remember. The incredible display includes giant lighted arches, over 25 inflatables characters, a 20ft snowman, thousands of lights, an animatronic Santa, and more.

They call it the Salgado Family Christmas Display, and it’s put together each year by siblings Pahan and Supuli, their parents Ameesha and Chalanga, uncle Indika, and cousins Dulitha and Dinuki. The tradition started at their grandmother’s house in Gaithersburg when Pahan and Supuli were small children. The display eventually moved to her children’s home in Germantown. Their grandmother passed away in 2020 and the family lost their other grandmother in Sri Lanka the same year as well. To honor them and their memories, the family added two angels to the display.

The display will be open from dusk to dawn every day, weather permitting, until January 7. It can be found at 11609 Lucrece Ter. in Germantown. Everyone is welcome to take photos with the display and animatronics and go under the arch tunnel of lights. There will be a snow machine that will be on every Saturday and Sunday from 5:45pm-7pm.
