BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) — A tradition almost 50 years in the making was on display in Bellevue on Christmas Eve.

Families lit luminaries in the Fontenelle Hills neighborhood and starting at 6:30 p.m., the small lanterns were on display at every house in the neighborhood.

The president of the neighborhood association, Rich Casey, says the effort is more than meets the eye.

"This is an older neighborhood and older residents so it's a struggle for a lot of folks to do it so one of the great things we have is a local boy scout troop will step in for those families that can't do it, physically can't do it or if they're out of town for the holidays they'll come in and set all them up," he said.

Casey added that next year for the traditions 50th anniversary, there are big plans.
