  • The annual Willis Family Open House is a festival of holiday decor from top to bottom. Visitors who come by the Willis house can see 26 themed Christmas trees, 19 wreaths, holiday light displays and other holiday decor, both indoors and out. This year's event will take place on Saturday, December 16, 2017, and will benefit K-9s for Warriors. From 1 to 3 p.m., a K-9s for Warriors puppy-in-training named Bristol will be in attendance.

    The Willis home is guaranteed to get everyone into the holiday spirit. The Christmas trees range from a Grinch tree and a Trains, Planes and Automobiles tree to a Star Trek tree and a gorgeous nature tree. Trees range in sizes from one foot to ten feet tall. Wreaths and other holiday ornaments line the walls and tables, and the outdoor displays look beautiful both in the daytime and at night. Supervised children are welcome at this event.

    None of the trees are real, so anyone with allergies to natural trees can still attend.

    Admission: FREE; donations to K9s for Warriors strongly suggested.

    Where: 740 S. Heritage Creek Way in St. Augustine, Florida 32084 (in Heritage Park New Hope's Village, off Lewis Speedway).

    When: 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 16, 2017.

    This event benefits K9s for Warriors and donations are GREATLY appreciated.

    K9s for Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress disability, traumatic brain injury and other traumas as a result of military service post 9/11. Their goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. The dogs being trained are also getting a new "leash" on life, as they are all rescue animals.
