RIVERVIEW, Fla. — Tampa Bay’s "king of Christmas lights" is ready to sell off Santa.

Mike Richards of Riverview, who was featured on ABC’s “The Great Christmas Light Fight” in December, says the lights take up several months each year. He wants to concentrate on other projects.

“My wife wants to do Halloween decorations this year,” Richards said.

So he’s selling off his epic display – a whopping 750,000 LED Christmas lights – for $24,000.

The only catch? He wants to sell the entire display to only one buyer. Don't worry, he's said he'll give the buyer instruction on how to set it up.

Richards says the display is actually worth close to $62,000.
