Carmela’s Mini Santa Land Moving
Carmela's Mini Santa Land, which was featured on ABC's The Great Christmas Light Fight, is moving to a new location on Highway 259 in Longview.
The light display has been on Carmela Davis' property in Spring Hill for 13 years but has grown in popularity to the point of interfering with other residents.
Carmela Davis told the Longview News Journal, "I moved it because of the complaints, but this really is an opportunity to grow. The access at this new location is not in front of any homes. The entrance and the exit will both have great access. Highway 259 is a nice, four-lane highway with wide shoulders. Last year, we had to turn people away because traffic got so backed up, but this year, I don't see that happening because we have such nice access from the highway. And we'll be able to expand and expand for years to come."
Plans are to have Carmela's Mini Santa Land open by November 15. It will be free admission but donations will be accepted.
