North East man displays thousands of holiday antiques

Local News
A North East man goes all out for the holidays with a massive collection of antique decorations.  Donald Bova decorates his parents home with holiday trimmings he’s been collecting for 40 years.
 
He has three Christmas trees with more than a thousand ornaments on each one.  He has collected hundreds, maybe even thousands decorations including light up plaques, village homes, and some toys. 
 
“I loved Christmas a kid, my grandmother would decorate, it was so bright, I just started collecting Christmas things,” said Bova. 
 
It takes takes day to put all of the decorations, and days to take them all down. 
 
Bova also owns Bova’s Italian Restaurant on South Lake Road in North East. 
 
“Costumers call months in advance to ask when the decorations will be up.” said the restaurant owner. 
 
The decorations will remain up until the week after the 1st of the year.
