As if the Bowling Ball house wasn't already enough of a year-round spectacle, during the holidays they really lather on the dingdangles and whizzymajigs. The dazzle will continue through Dec. 30th.

Bowling Ball House

There is a multi-colored house with more than 300 bowling balls lining the flower beds and bordering the house -- there is a bottle wall around the cactus garden, gardens of blue bottles on stakes, a zoo of funny sculpture animals called the Whimzoo. Several artcars often park in the parkingpit. There is a a colorful and ornately decorated gazebo and crabtrap buoy ornaments hanging from the gingerbread eaves. There's also a Bowling ball Art Museum that has 80 artistically manipulated bowling balls -- everything from corked, beaded and feathered ones to larger sculptures incorporating the ball somehow -- created and donated from artists from all over the country. Also a favorite golden ball was photographed with a bunch of celebrities -- Roy Rogers, Muhammed Ali, Bob Dole, John Denver. Overall, it's a fun and magical place that makes everybody who visits smile.
