This Magical Holiday Display Is Named After A Jack Russell Terrier!
People from all over come to check out Wally's Wonderland. This dazzling light display is one man's way of saying 'Thank You' to his community.
Walter Schalk owns the Walter Schalk School of Dance, now in its 60th year. With generations of students under his tutelage, some refer to him as the "Grandaddy of Dance."
The annual display started over ten years ago with one christmas tree, and each year the display grew, requiring more and more electrical systems. Now, lights cover the railings, dozens of candy canes appear near the roof, and more christmas trees have popped up. From afar, Schalk's home looks bright and festive enough to be in a theme park. The difference being that Schalk's display can be enjoyed free of charge.
In the holiday spirit and as a way to say thank you to the community, Schalk donned his home in a wonderful display of lights.
“It's a way of giving back to the community," he said. “I get a kick out of it because the kids really enjoy it."
