Selfless & amazing!!!
by: Riley Family

This is our 2nd year in a row visiting the house(multiple times a year) and now it has become one of our traditions. We personally know some of the people involved and think that what they are doing is totally selfless and beautiful. Their holiday spirit is infectious and you can't help but be cheerfull when your there. Our son calls it The North Pole and really does think it's the real thing! We enjoy visiting every year and will be returning for many more to com! Happy Holidays and I hope you win!!!

by: star struck

Each year during the Holiday season approaches,I just love to see all the different ways people decorate their houses with lights! as I drove up Blackrock Turnpike in fairfield I see this amazing Star in the sky,a Christmas tree must be 100 feet high.the radiant glow of this home drew me from the main road.I was captivated by the amount of hard work and effort it must have taken to assemble all of this magnificent ensenmble!! I really hope this house wins this contest..they deserve recognition for all the joy and happiness they bring to people like me and as I understand hundreds of others that visit each night!!!

5 stars is not enough!
by: R. Callahan

This place truly is a "Wonderland". The decorations are simply amazing. Things are not just thrown around on the property and plugged in. The members that assemble this project actually take the time to space things out into different themes. Its truly a well thought out piece of work. The dedication of these friends and family that make this happen is absolutely outstanding. The countless hours, the hard work, and the attention to detail is marvelous. It is the most talked about item in town around the Christmas holiday and it it very understandably why. In a nutshell, 5 stars is not enough. It truly deserves 10!! I am looking forward to coming back a couple of more times this year with some friends that have not seen it yet, and can't wait to see what happens next year!!! Thanks again "Wonderland".

This place is absolutely AMAZING!! Our family found this by accident one evening 3 years ago while we were on our way home from a day of selecting the finest tree for our holiday. I figured that I had it made. We picked the best, biggest, most beautiful tree at the tree farm that was available and I was going home to put the star on top! Then it hit me like a brick wall! Not only did someone beat me at placing a star on the top of the "Christmas" tree, the man scaled a living tree in the backyard and placed a 5 foot star that you can see from every direction! I WAS ASTONISHED!! We followed closer and closer. You cant miss it! It was THE guiding light. Turning onto the street was the culmination of it all. What seemed to be a quiet street was actually a beautiful glow of shimmering lights. An open invitation to park and walk the property, see the displays or just stand back and relive this through my kids like it was my childhood all over again. Since then it has become a family tradition and we are there on Christmas eve for Santa and Mrs. Clause, Angels, and a special appearance by the Grinch himself! The kids love it! My wife and I love it! Go see for yourself and YOU WILL LOVE IT too!!
Best Holiday Wishes To All-- The Mullins

Truly Wonderful!
by: Anonymous

We've brought our kids to this Wonderland for the past few years, and they are so thrilled and awe inspired each time. Just to see their smiling faces and the joy on everyone's face who stops by makes it so worthwhile. I am humbled by the amount of planning, dedication and work this family puts into their display. Truly gets me into the Christmas spirit. AND they collect donations for the Shriners Hospitals for Children! Truly Wonderful!

An outstanding Christmas light diplay
by: Anonymous

I have been a frequent visitor of Wonderland at Roseville,I have personally met the owners and family and friends that have put this most outstanding display together, I have asked all the questions about how long it takes to make this all happen,and how many lights?... they also have 2 LGB trains that run on seperate tracks,the big one runs all the way into the back yard. It takes them 2 months to put together,(1000 hours)and 100,000 + lights involved.... I cant wait to bring all my family and friends to see it!!!
