Jerry and Jean Corrado of East Bradford may have a regular front yard for most of the year, but when the holiday season rolls around, it turns into an inflatable Christmas paradise, writes Bill Rettew for The Daily Local News.
The dazzling maze of light up décor and blow-up elves, reindeer, and even a dinosaur encapsulates the neighbors and passersby. It’s no wonder why the Corrados have rightfully earned the moniker of “the light people”.
The 27-inflatable display at 1102 Nobb Hill Drive is more than just aesthetics. The Corrados also use the luminescent lawn spectacle as part of a toy drive for kids in need.
Last year, they collected more than 4,000 donated toys. Jerry has been putting on this Winter Wonderland exhibit for the past 18 years. It costs the couple about $600 to keep the lights on throughout the holiday season.
The Corrados have attracted a collection of memories because of their front yard collectibles. One year had proposed in front of their exhibit. The Corrados also appreciate it when parents of the kids in need “pay it forward” by donating to the toy drive.
