“My family is not here so I’m excited I want to be a part of Christmas, New Years and everything. Montgomery is awesome and I love it,” said Norman.

Others have been coming for years.

“I’ve been coming a lot of times, because, you know, you always have something new to offer and the creativity is amazing...it’s amazing,” said Baka Sankey.

Sankey said his favorite part is, of course, the candy.

“My orthodontist is going to kill me...literally,” he said.
