What you see is what you get. There are three (what look like) dancing girls on the roof, with a guitarist in a Santa hat. The cosmic ribbons are the arches, and the lights are timed to music. A nice display for a small commercial property, but not what I would call a top 30 display.

The comment above was about the Golden Spike Harley Davidson display. I assumed the comments would be listed under the entry. We also visited the Ogden house with the Nightmare Before Christmas themed yard. If you've seen the movie you will appreciate the display. It's not flashy, but it's got lots of lights and is fun to look at.

Also, if you go to Hooper Holiday House, you get a bonus down the block of another animated display that's fun to listen to. You can hear the music with your windows down a bit. Lots of lights and displays.
