Thank you so much for all who took the time to decorate their homes. It’s a beautiful tour around the neighborhood.
The home with music that plays in coordination with the lights is 5908 Hesketh Drive. Turn your radio to 99.9 fm.
The home where you can press a button to make snow and fog fall on the decorations is 901 Elsey Street.
The home with a beautiful nativity set is 6000 Preston Court.
The number of inflatable decorations has increased delighting the children.
These are some of the best homes in the neighborhood as judged by four adult and four child residents. Board Vice-President Roxanne Fackler spearheaded the project. Winners each won gift certificates for a dozen Foster’s donuts.
Park Stockdale certainly has the Christmas spirit.

You better be ready because a panel of Christmas aficionados will scour the neighborhood Dec. 18 to make a list of the best decorated Christmas homes. Residents of the top three homes in each of three categories will be awarded one dozen donuts. The categories are: nativity, traditional and kids’ pick.
These homes look ready.

Dinosaurs and princesses, superheroes and unicorns, more than 50 costumed trick or trunkers in all, enjoyed the Park Stockdale Civic Association’s Halloween Spooktacular Trunk or Treat and Carnival Friday, Oct. 27.
Seven volunteers decorated their car trunks into everything from a Las Vegas Raiders-themed ghoulish nightmare with skeletons and skeleton dogs to a spider’s cobweb littered with skulls and ghosts that costumed creatures had to brave if they wanted a treat.
The parking lot party included a dance competition, emceed by Melissa Martinez, followed by a costume parade.
Then the party moved into the hall for 13 carnival games and prizes run by volunteers from the Bakersfield High junior varsity baseball team, Toys for Tots and the Young Marines.
Board member Kiki Contreras masterminded and ran the event. Board member Ana Flores helped set up and board member Josh Saravia, and his wife Marilyn, decorated their car trunk for the candy distribution.
Teresa Bradburn, Anthony and Jessica Martinez,
Mariah Lopez, Jose Martinez, JV head baseball coach Dale Romero, coach Sammy Lona, Darlene Doughty, Amber Anderson, Erick Gutierrez and Marc Sandall also volunteered their time.
