At the two-hour event, each child will get to wander the property and meet Santa Claus.The driveway at the Krebs property is lined with snowmen. The front lawn has thousands of lights in all the trees. There are also sleighs, a Ferris wheel, a train, wooden mountains of snow, and a handmade wooden choir. The inside of the home also has countless decorations, and a gingerbread house.The Krebs recall how they barely had any decorations up in the early days of their marriage, and lived in a 24-foot trailer. Times have changed, and they are enjoying the beautiful displays annually now, at every turn of their property.
