Through the years additional displays have been added.
In 2003 a Poinsettia Candle Extravaganza; fifty (50) snowflake pole decorations; and a Railroad Water Tower, built in house.
In 2004 a large animated Rocking Horse; an American Flag with starburst; an Elf feeding a Reindeer; Old Man Winter; and several of the favorites were refurbished.
In 2005, several of the large existing displays were beginning to look worn and tattered and had to be refurbished, but the community was accustomed to new displays being added each year. Through the sponsorship generosity of several individuals and businesses the new Jurassic Display was selected and was an immediate favorite of the children. Also purchased in 2005, by sponsors, were: The Jumping Dolphins and a Windmill. In 2006, the committee had several existing displays refurbished at a cost of $20,000. A “Small Town” scene was designed with the refurbished silhouette buildings, large trees and several new and existing displays; a large cross; a man and boy skating; a fireman and a policeman; carolers; and children sledding. The last piece, Raptor, was purchased to complete the Jurassic Display.
In 2007, approximately $32,000 was spent on refurbishment of existing displays and the purchase of numerous small and several large displays. Large displays included: Noah’s Ark; a replica of Ashland’s Central Fire Station (which was built in 1908); Elf and a Piggy Bank; and Raggedy Ann and Andy.
In 2008, displays purchased by sponsors include: a Jack in the Box; a Santa in Sleigh with 9 reindeer; an Elf trimming a Christmas Tree; Elf Stuffing a Stocking; Children Skating; and the largest display, a Toy Factory, all of which are animated. The Committee purchased several new pole displays for Winchester Avenue and had the Ferris Wheel and the park’s entrance arches refurbished. Total cost refurbished displays was approximately $40,000. Also, new for 2008 was the Community Christmas Card project.
In 2009, sponsors purchased 2 new displays (with LED lights) a Grist Mill, and Elves jumping over a Candle; 32 LED lit pole displays for Winchester and Carter Avenues; and a few small items for the park.
The emphasis for 2010 and 2011 was on basic display/electrical maintenance, and a “Go Green” campaign to re-light many of the displays with LED bulbs, which cost $1.15 each but last for an average of five years and reduce electrical energy use by as much as three fourths.
In 2011, 33 new pole displays were purchased for the downtown area, all with LED bulbs and 2 elves and a bi-plane display were purchased for the park with LED bulbs.
In 2012, new garland was purchased by a sponsor for Winchester Avenue and a new community Christmas tree topper. In an effort to have all LED pole displays, 36 were purchased for Winchester and Carter Avenues. An existing park display, “Peace on Earth Globe” was refurbished.
In 2013, one of the original displays the “Candy Factory” was completely refurbished and redesigned as a silhouette display and additional trees and pole displays were purchased and 37 pole displays refurbished.
