PLANTATION, Fla. (AP) - A South Florida city is suing to shut down a massive annual Christmas display in a South Florida couple’s front yard.

But with the lawsuit stalled in the legal system, the light show in a Plantation suburb will go on this holiday season.

The Sun Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1NL6DvN ) reports the city has declared the Kathy and Mark Hyatt’s display a nuisance since it draws hundreds of people each night. A hearing was postponed during the summer and hasn’t been rescheduled.

So, for the third year in a row, police will shut down part of the road near the couple’s home, keeping cars away from a road that’s clogged with pedestrians looking at the lights.

Over the years, the Hyatts have said the display is a matter of property rights.
