WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) -

Two bars in Wrightsville Beach are gaining a lot of attention because of their holiday light displays. 

King Neptune’s bar took three weeks to put up lights and decorations and just a week later their neighboring competitor, Red Dogs, put up a holiday light display saying "Ditto" with an arrow pointing to King Neptune’s bar.

Those who pass by enjoy the lights by taking plenty of pictures and selfies, but many question the "Ditto" display and wonder where the idea came from.

“A friend of ours saw it online and it was pointing to a house with a lot of lights so we liked it and thought it would be funny and cool to put up on our bar," said Red Dogs owner Keaton Cline. 

Kathryn Banks of Neptune’s said people are getting a kick out of the two displays.

“They love it, at first we got a lot of 'oh my goodness,' but yes we really get everybody in the Christmas spirit a little bit earlier and it definitely draws a lot of attention to us as well,” Banks said.

The owners of Red Dogs said this is their first time doing this and they plan on having a better display for the next holiday season.
