DES MOINES, Iowa – About 50 households in the Beaverdale neighborhood have decorated their properties this holiday season.

People in the community can walk around Ashby and Wallace Avenue to see the lights. The community is welcomed every night from 6 to 9 p.m.

Judging for the lights started on December 11th and will end on the 19th. The prize is simply bragging rights.

Decorations on each property can include: lawn ornaments, lighting scheme, moving figures, luminaries, etc.

Michael Bergman grew up in the area and said this time of the year is special.

I knew I always wanted to move back to Beaverdale. It’s kind of a special place. It’s a small town. People move back. I go for a walk and I see old classmates, and old classmates parents and we are a couple blocks away from MaryKate’s school and the school me and my siblings went to as kids. It’s a big part of our life," Bergman said.

The lights will be up until December 31st.
