Spectacular Christmas display for Juvenile diabetes Research Foundation

Each year our friend Joe Mure does an amazing display of lights and decorations around his home, it's called "The little north pole."  He does this to raise funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and is diligently working towards finding a cure for this terrible disease.   Over the years he has raised over a million dollars for this cause and still continues.  Starting the first weekend of November,  Joe and his 40 or more friends install all the decorations and displays during the entire month.  On the first Saturday of December, the street gets closed off from cars for the "lighting" of The Little North Pole.  Our whole community looks forward to this event every year.  He sets up a stage for the local school bands and dancers from the dance school to perform.  There is also famous entertainers like Judy Torres from the 80's, "Chicken little" one of previous "American Idol" contestant and more.   He even has Santa Clause and Mrs. Clause come on a fire engine ladder to give out toys to hundreds of children that come to join in the festivities.  There is free food and games for everyone which are donated from caterers for the cause.

He sets up his two car garage for the Santa's elve's workshop

  1. I can't say enough about how dear JDRF is to my heart. My sweet 3 year old nephew has type 1 diabetes, and it is heartbreaking. This looks like a wonderful event, and a truly wonderful man!
