Mason Fellows collected inflatable Christmas decorations for most of his life. They fill every corner of his yard and also spill over into his neighbor’s yard.
And on dark December nights, the decorations draw crowds of tourists who flock to the house off Continental Drive for the bouncy air-filled creatures and the glowing light display.
Earlier this year, in anticipation of the Christmas season, the 14-year-old East Middle School student found a way to use his display as a way to raise funds for Toys for Tots because “what could be better than toys at Christmas? ” he said.
Fellows said he will be on his sidewalk this weekend selling cookies, pouring cocoa and spreading holiday cheer with help from his 11-year-old brother, Dylan Fellows, and 12-year-old cousin, Colt Stenson.
The first two weekends he opened the booth, Fellows said he raised nearly $ 400 by selling candy for just a dollar. And just before Christmas, he and his team of self-proclaimed elves will be heading to Walmart where he will play the role of Santa Claus. He will use the money raised to choose toys to donate.
To view the expanded exhibit and help raise funds, visit Fellows and His Family at 4103 Trenton Street from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday in Butte.
