GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

All good things must come to an end - that's what many Upstate residents are thinking as a holiday lights show that's been around since 1992 wraps up.

The Roper Mountain Holiday Lights (RMHL) show came to an end on December 30th, and with it, all 200 holiday light displays.

The light displays were placed into an online auction for families to have a unique opportunity to take some of their favorite memories from the show home with them. All lights and decorations were sold to the highest bidder, who then has to remove the decoration, light or prop themselves.

Here is the ending price on some of the RMHL staples:

  • "Seasons Greetings" lighting display - $4,300 after 34 bids
  • One of the palmetto tree lighting displays - $736 after 38 bids
  • Belly whooping Frosty moving lighting display - $1,050 after 38 bids
  • Winter Wonderland tunnel entrance - $1,950 after 37 bids
  • "Roper Mountain Holiday Lights" light display - $625 after 45 bids (the highest number of bids for a light display)

The bidding ended on January 3rd, and winning bidders began picking up their items soon thereafter. Anyone still needing to pick up their items can visit the pickup location at 402 Roper Mountain Road, Greenville, SC 29615.
