You’ve just gotta give a big hug and a round of applause for the man behind the magic – Dale Ryan – for all the work he puts into the annual Christmas House (1525 Fifth Street)!
This year, they turn on the lights on Friday, December 6th, and they have more planned this year for this annual tradition than ever before.
The street will close off around 4:30 pm, and then at 5pm, they will have a stage performance from the ‘Intensive Company’ from Dance Etc.! So there will be dancing, music and also the Boulder City Mounted Police Unit will be on hand, all decked out for the night for crowd control, and of course photo ops too.
Then we’re told that at 5:30 pm Santa and Mrs. Clause along with Jingle Cat (of course!) will do the countdown and then the lights will come on for the season!
Dale’s got some really cool stuff he’s working on this year that is completely NEW! But don’t you know it – he won’t let us tell you ANYTHING about it…
Afterwards, just walk a few blocks back up to Nevada Way and attend the Annual Boulder City Tree Lighting at 6pm….which we’re told there will also be a new surprise at that event as well!
Remember – when it comes to viewing the lights at our famous Christmas House, to always be respectful of their home and neighbors, as there are often crowds all season long. Also remember that the house is lit and open for visitors from 5pm – 9pm, but if it’s rainy or on a night with heavy winds, the house will not be lighted as it is not safe. Enjoy everyone – we’ll see you all there!
