Electric Lizzyland is like Clark Griswold’s house on acid.
There’s always that one person in your neighborhood that goes a little extra during the holidays. In October, it was Dallas resident, Steven Novak, whose hyperreal horror-show yard display summoned multiple visits from Dallas PD. In December that person is Liz Simmons’ whose high-voltage Electric Lizzyland dazzles Dallasites every year with her other-wordly display. [Featured image: @jvaughn7266]
Walking up the sidewalk, through the tentacular columns under the vibrant Electric Lizzyland banner is like plunging into a kaleidoscope.
At 714 Newell Ave., hundreds of thousands of swirling Christmas lights, the most delightfully creepy Nativity scene you’ve ever seen, and enough glitter to shut down a gentlemen’s club create a whirlwind of galvanizing fun and cheer.
Homeowner and yuletide mastermind, Liz Simmons, has been electrifying visitors with holiday cheer for years. In an interview with Dallas News, Simmons said that preparation for her magical mystery manifestation takes months to complete. During creative process, her workshop overflows with glue, plywood, paint, and pounds of glitter. Simmons recycles her materials of course, but every year strives to improve her shining work of art.
“I kind of feel like I’ve created a bit of a monster, but I like my monster,” she told Dallas News. “It’s a nice monster.”
Visitors of Electric Lizzyland are welcome to leave a note in Simmon’s guest book. Electric Lizzyland is lit up nightly from 6 pm – 8 pm except on nights of inclement weather.
