From what we've seen, a lot of the displays are so hodge podged that you can't make heads or tails of it, especially when the wind blows things down and around. It's like people want to see how many things they can connect to lights in the smallest of places. This is so tacky. Some are very tastefully done.

Enjoy the beer and wine you will love it

We will be at the fort Nov 30 & Dec 1st with our cub scout pack. Many have never stayed at the fort so I am hoping there will be a good number of sites decorated. Looking forward to the end of the month.

Well unfortunately we may have to cancel our trip. My DD is sick in ICU now and probably will not be well enough in time for the trip.

Sorry to hear, I hope she has a very speedy recovery and you can still make your trip.
