WELLINGTON, Colo. (AP) - A Wellington family is back with their holiday lights after their homeowners association backed down from attempts to limit holiday lawn displays to three decorations.
Davin Armstrong and his wife, Amber Hersh, are drawing huge crowds this year with about 100 handmade Christmas decorations, including a Christmas town, a full Santa and reindeer set, three additional reindeer, 12 handmade trees and a train set.
Last year, the association tried to charge fines of up to $75 every two weeks for the display, citing a bylaw limiting lawn ornaments to three per household, but the family refused to pay up. Rather than fight, the association changed the bylaws.
According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan (http://tinyurl.com/ce29j32), the family got support from as far away as Texas.
