Turlock resident Stephanie Valgos became a neighborhood favorite during Halloween when she turned her house into a haunted experience for ghouls young and old.
Valgos is at it once again, but this time she has transformed her home into a Christmas fantasy.
"I tried to build a whimsical place, a type of fantasy land for children — with visions of sugarplums, candy canes, elves and reindeer. I wanted to take adults to a place and time before innocence was lost," Valgos said.
Valgos' Christmas fantasy is located at 4215 Merchant Lane, Turlock. To get there, take McKenna Drive off Christoffersen Parkway, turn right onto Wendy Way, then left onto Merchant.
