The Ultimate Christmas Yard Display
Dennis and Nancy Carrier go all out every year in Riverside
Once again Dennis and Nancy Carrier have delighted hundreds of holiday decoration aficionados with their Adams avenue Christmas display in Riverside. Each year the Carriers bring out their illuminated decorations and cars make a regular pilgrimage to see the extravaganza. "I start decorating right after Halloween," said Carrier as The Reporter visited his home in late December. "I've lost track of how many items we have, but it's a lot," he chuckled as cars rode by, many honking horns in approval. Carrier said the response from neighbors and others riding by has been enthusiastic. "Everyone seems to enjoy it and it's certainly a labor of love," he said. The Carrier display includes an eclectic arrangement of decorations. There are the three stooges, Santa in a sleigh floating in the air, snoopy and his dog house as well as choirs, plenty of snowmen and many other brightly colored figures. A recently retired driver for the Pepsi-Cola company with more time on his hands, look for the massive display to expand. "Shhh, don't tell my wife," Carrier smiles.
