Gnome Family Christmas
‘Tis the season for the gnomes to celebrate… with a very festive feast!
Where you’ll find it: When Pigs Fly, 10470 Whyte Avenue
When you can see it:
Monday - Thursday, 6 a.m. – 11:30 p.m.
Friday 6 a.m. – 1:30 a.m.
Saturday 9 a.m. – 1:30 a.m.
Sunday 9 a.m. – 11:30 p.m.
Did you know: The little pans that hang on the side of the stove were found at an estate sale that, coincidentally, had a yard full of garden gnomes.
Dimensions: This is a tricky one. It is a diamond shape that covers the three windows at the corner of 105th and Whyte Avenue. The Whyte Avenue window is about five feet, the corner window is about three feet and the 105th Street window is approximately four feet. The display stands 96 inches tall from the floor of the gnome house to the top of the tree.
Number of characters: There are a grand total of 10 gnomes and their pet mouse. The Papa gnome coming into the room is static but all the others gnomes are moving. (The Mama gnome is getting a toy from the chest, Papa #2 is bouncing Junior on his knee, Sis is showing Junior her toy, Mama #2 is cooking at the stove, the Uncle is laughing at the table, Sis #2 is taking a piece of bread, Daughter is greeting Papa at the door, and Junior #2 in blue is petting the mouse. Got all that?)
More cool facts: Add this window display together with the other eight Return of the Magic displays along Whyte Avenue and here’s what you get: a total of 79 characters (including all animals, 61 moving characters and 18 static characters)
