Joey Felix estimates that his home’s Christmas display was the result of about 100 man-hours put in by himself, his family and neighbors.
That effort could ultimately be worth $1,000 an hour if online voters show their support for Felix’s Dallas home, as it’s one of the 25 finalists in Patch’s Deck the House contest. The entry that earns the most votes in the contest will earn the local school system—in this case, Paulding County Schools—$100,000.
Voting in Patch’s Deck the House contest continues through noon Friday, Dec. 28. All you have to do is visit this page to browse a gallery of the finalists and cast your vote. You may vote once per day.
Dallas-Hiram Patch spoke to Felix in November as he and his family put some of the finishing touches on their display. The public these next few days can drive by the Felix home at 224 Oliver Overlook in Dallas to see the display in action.
