Glen Burnie resident Tony Iorio has holiday spirit to share, decorating his house with more than 2,000 sets of lights and arranging an appearance from Santa himself.
For the past 27 years, Tony Iorio has gone the extra mile with his Christmas decorations. Beginning with simple blue lights outlining his house located at 528 Delmar Ave., over the years Iorio expanded his decorations to include more than 2,000 sets of lights, multiple blow-up figures, a laser show and a snowmaker. And on Saturday nights, Santa Claus himself makes an appearance to hear children's wish lists and spread holiday cheer. Iorio, who said he gets his inspiration from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, said people come from all over the region to view his house on Delmar Avenue, sometimes drawing up to 400 cars in a weekend.
