|Awixa Castle at Christmas|
The original deed on the land that Awixa Castle sits on, dates back over 400 years authorized by Queen Anne of England. The Castle itself didn't come to fruition until the early 20th Century. In 1999, a guy bought the place and it was in disrepair, so he decided to fix it up. And he did. Now a days, Awixa Castle is used for various charitable events a few times a year. In addition, at Christmas time, the castle is transformed into a magical lighted fantasy land, with over 250,000 lights on over three acres of land.
Here's a video interview with Joe Weiss, the owner of the castle. Throughout the interview, you'll get to see various mini-. displays within the big display. It's quite a sight to behold.
