How'd you like to spend Christmas ... on Balboa Island? Greg & Loretta Zimmerman wouldn't have it any other way: every year they Deck The Halls of their Bayside Abode while their neighbors Deck The Decks of Various Vessels in preparation for the Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade, an annual event dating back more than a Century to 1908! Having won numerous Awards, including the BIIA ( Balboa Island Improvement Association ) Best Decorated Home for 2010 & the 2009 Ring of Lights Waterfront Home Decorating Competition, it'd be difficult to overstate the popularity of this Hang-Ten Holiday Hangout! From a mini Laser Show with a Festively Floydian Vibe to a rooftop Snow Machine that delivers a genuinely unexpected blast of Pacific Powder, this animated pad is Très Hulala, especially the Rope Light Hula Girls! Gregg's stated Rule of Thumb: "If it's not visible from Space, you don't have enough Lights!"; the Implied Corollary: "If your house is on a Hawaiian Shirt, the Tiki Gods are probably impressed!"
