2. 1144 Wabash Avenue
Twas the month before Christmas and all through the yard, not a creature was stirring except Santa cooking hard. The reindeer waited patiently for their fresh cooked treat, Mrs. Claus, not so much, she's ready to eat! The snowman is chilling every minute of the day. With soldiers guarding the house and 61,500 lights lighting the way, Santa takes a bath watching the music cued light in prep for his soon to be very long flight.
These lights will be on display dusk until 10:00 pm Sunday- Thursday, and dusk to 11:00 pm Friday and Saturday.
