My work is right through the woods from his house, he draws some huge crowds around christmas time, definately worth checking out. His property is huge, his front yard alone has to be 5 acres with a pond. He started to put all the decorations up right after thanksgiving and everyday there is more and more.

yup i go every year, it's not as good now because someone that use to go ALL out sold the house and the people that bought it don't do jack shit for decorations now. It was like the first house on the left. When you go down the first entrance of the road.

Took my daughter to Millis last night, she had a blast...

Just be prepared to sit in traffic for a 1/2hour or so, moves pretty slow but it's worth it. The guy also has a few cars on display as well. He had a sweet 70 GTX and a old GMC on "dubba, dubs"

of time on the weekend. Its not as busy busy.

I also went again tonight. That 70 GTX was awesome. It had the 440-6 pak Sticker with the Air grabber hood. The old Blazer was nice too. The display was better this year.

Yeah, good time tonight! It was my first time there and I was really impressed. If that guy installed a bunch of rides and a train ride, his would be much better than Edaville Railroad's Christmas display in Carver.

That GTX is a badass ride! I needed a bib to catch my drool as I slowly cruised by.

That would have been a good idea, but I actually had no idea where we were going. My brother may have since he'd been there before. All I know was that my dad and stepmom asked us if we wanted to see this house that was all lit up and we said "sure". We then piled into our minivans and followed them over there. Maybe next year if there's no snow/salt on the roads, we can take the Mustangs/Capris up there and meet up for dinner someplace. I'd have to be last in line though as my exhaust will burn your eyes. Not good for the kids!
