Comfortable residential structure

Bob Sanda’s, Liz Bray’s Christmas gentle decorations in Goodyear

A almost 2,000-sq.-foot dwelling with a tropical yard and waterfall in Goodyear transforms into a castle with towers trimmed in holiday lights each and every Christmas. 

The remarkable holiday display in the Estrella Park community is at the household of Liz Bray and Bob Sanda, but the Christmastime transformation is all his. 

When Bray and Sanda met 5 many years back, he introduced with him a lifelong custom of following-stage getaway decorating. 

Their dwelling, at 13204 S. 176th Ave., is among those showcased on azcentral’s Getaway Lights map. The display is lit (and synchronized to songs) through New Year’s Eve. 

The couple encourage site visitors to end their cars and trucks and wander on the sidewalk and driveway all-around their display in the hope of connecting people to their concept of appreciate. 

“We want people today to go away our dwelling empowered to do very good and spend it ahead.” Sanda claimed.

Worth a nearer search

Liz Bray and Bob Sanda stand beside a Christmas message posted at the corner of their yard, sharing passages and scripture for the season.

Their “Joy of Christmas” display screen takes two and a half months to put up and features some 40,000 lights, a snowman band, a train and the castle.

You can expect to come across no inflatables. And to quote Sanda’s brother: “You’re welcome.”

Sanda’s displays are motorized. This time, Santa is aboard a teach with his hat blowing in the wind.
