“Miracle On Summit”

Webster Groves resident Jack McGowan puts passion for the holidays to good use

It’s no secret that Jack McGowan is a big fan of Christmas. He’s known by former neighbors in Tower Grove Park and Dogtown for his elaborate holiday light displays. Now a resident of Webster Groves, McGowan has no intention of stopping the tradition — and this year, he’s got something special planned.

“Miracle on Summit” is an all-season event on McGowan’s street of Summit Avenue, just north of Lockwood Avenue. From Nov. 20 through Jan. 2, visitors can stroll Summit to view thousands of lights — including light shows synchronized to music at McGowan’s home at 119 Summit Ave. on Friday and Saturday nights beginning at 6 p.m. As part of the “miracle” of holiday giving, all season long, bins placed on the west side of Summit will collect non-perishable food donations for Operation Food Search. Interested parties can also donate to an online food drive, with all proceeds going directly to Operation Food Search. Read more…
