  • It's a family tradition in Dry Ridge

    It is hard to miss the glow of lights coming from the top of the hill at 45 North Main St. in Dry Ridge.

    Candy canes, icicle lights and two snowmen “keeping eye over the hillside” are just a few of the decorations celebrating the holidays at Christopher Ballard’s house.

    “The main feature is the three-dimensional, animated deer,” he said. We also put a strobe light tree down the right hand side of the house. We put a couple things underneath it to make it look like there’s presents.”
