2507 Fairview Drive - Alexandria, VA

With more than 70 Festive Blow-Ups & untold legions of Vinyl Lighted Figures ( Penguins, Polar Bears, even, to quote Adam Sandler, "All Three Stooges" ), Fred & Pat Farmer's 20+ year old Beltway Behemoth is one stunningly cheerful sight to behold ... About 5 years ago, the Farmers "farmed out" the Labor & a portion of the Props to their 2 Sons, who, naturally enough, used the Electric & Inflatable Heirlooms as foundations for their own Semi-Massive Displays - 1 in Alexandria, VA & 1 in Chevy Chase, MD ... Pat passed away recently, so this year's porch window is a touching Memorial and not the traditional Christmas Village in the '07 snaps below ...

We saw this home on Christmas Eve last year (2009) and were AMAZED. It was so fun and brought a little magic to Christmas. My son is 3 this year and I can't wait to bring him again because he's going to love it. It's truly one of the most wacky and fun displays I've ever seen!!

This house has been a tradition for our family and friends for the last 5 years or so. We were so upset to find out tonight when on our annual Christmas lights drive that the house on Fairview is no longer lit. So disheartened! :(
