I was looking for new places to visit to see Christmas light displays and upon my search, this was the first place that showed up. I was sold when I saw that they were featured on the Great Christmas Light Fight in 2015 and once I saw the pictures of this wonderful place I knew I had to check it out immediately.
I knew it was a private home and wasn't really sure how elaborate it was going to be that is until I showed up and the line was down the street and all I could see were all these amazing flashing light displays in the front of the house. I was blown away by how intricate it was and it was as if I was visiting an amusement park during the holiday season. Many of the lights were flashing and changing colors. I loved when we first walked in there were all these snowy white Christmas trees and from there it got better and better. The Santa display with all different Santas, the peanuts characters display, Mickey and friends, display and so on. There was even a scavenger hunt that you could do, there was a list of items for you to find. I did not participate in this because I was too busy taking pictures to try to find those items lol. I loved the Christmas house village, it was huge and there were just so many of those mini houses. He also had a miniature carnival area that I thought was really cute. I also loved the miniature train set he had out back among other things, there was so much going on and so much to see. It's hard because you really don't want to miss out on anything. Lights everywhere, cute displays everywhere, and it's probably the best and most amazing Christmas light display that I've seen at/in a residence and I'm so glad that I was able to make it here.
If you plan on checking this place out I suggest getting here right when they open because the line will be very long and the wait will be very long plus the entire walkthrough takes time. Dress warm because at night it gets extremely cold and it's all outdoors, you don't actually go inside the home. Parking is quite difficult as you will have to find parking spots in the residential neighborhood. Donations are accepted here as well and before you get to the actual house there were people a few houses down that were selling hot chocolate so that will help warm you up and the proceeds for that goes to a charity. Please visit this amazing place you will love it. I hope to make this a tradition from now on.
