Local News

Putting up Christmas decorations can be a labor of love and that is especially true for one couple near Ponca, Neb.

Gene Watchorn and Julie Mcdowell have been putting up one of Siouxlands greatest displays for over 15 years.

And it’s not just outside, every year the couple opens up their home to visitors, filled to the brim with holiday cheer for people to enjoy- all at no cost.

Mcdowell says, “He puts a lot of heart in behind it, we put a lot of heart in behind it but we just want people to enjoy and it not cost.”

The house will be featured on ABC’s ‘Great Christmas Light Fight’, Monday at 7 p.m.
