2012 Christmas Lane Photos: A Dover Tradition, a Regional Draw

Since 1980, Christmas Lane on Wooten Road has grown in size and stature. These photographs show why the 1.5-acre Christmas village display in the Greater Brandon community of Dover has become a must-see regional attraction.


Christmas Lane on Wooten Road in Dover has grown from its humble beginnings in 1980 into an elaborate display of lights, props and settings, drawing visitors from the Greater Brandon and Plant City communities and beyond.

Christmas Lane facts and figures, noted on signs in the village, give testament to the heart and soul, and the painstaking time and commitment, necessary to bring the village to life during the final month of the year.

Lane Wetherington told Brandon Patch in 2011 that he was 5 years old when he first strung lights around his father's farm. Now, he needs a volunteer staff to help him get the job done.
