This is the front of the Pusateri home where each year they light it up for the Make A Wish Foundation. There are 66,000 lights that go on for three plus weeks near Christmas and it is complete with animation, singing Santa's and even a few nights of Santa CLaus and Mrs Claus with two elfs to greet the kids. Pretty impressive as the annual lighting raises a lot of money for the Make A Wish Foundation, LAST YEAR NEARLY $ 10,000! Dave, Muriel and many helpers make tthis happen every night for kids who come from all over to see the awesome specticle.
The thermometer from last year urges to beat the total from the year before.
The informative signs let's the sightseers know when and what is going on.
