Changes on Fresno's Huntington Boulevard

It won't be the Christmas you remember, at least not in one Central Valley neighborhood known for it's elaborate décor. There will be no tree lighting at Huntington Boulevard, and no decoration in the median this year.

The well-known house where America's tallest living and lighted Christmas tree is usually lit, has changed owners. The decorations the neighborhood once used, sold off at a yard sale.

But no one wants a dark Christmas. So there's a grassroots effort to bring the holiday spirit back, and some residents will put up their own decorations.

They're also refurbishing the historic lampposts that span a mile. They'll be painted next week and should be finished by Thanksgiving.
