FROM THE NEWS-LEDGER — JAN 1, 2014 –

The holiday season can be a “showy” time of year in many West Sacramento neighborhoods.

The Fernwood Circle cul-de-sac in the central part of the city, not far from Park Boulevard, offers one such example. Neighbors there join together to offer a visual feast of Christmas lights for visitors.

“Every year, we’ll close the court off to vehicle traffic and we have Santa,” reports Tim Musial of Fernwood Circle. “People can come by and take pictures with Santa.”
The neighbors did just that on December 14.

Musial said the handful of homes in his court started their tradition of enthusiastically decorating for the holidays over a decade ago.

“Loren Alexander is the one who started it, about 11 years ago,” Musial told the News-Ledger. “I moved in about five years ago and just joined in.”
