CLINTON, Utah — A Clinton man is bringing smiles to families all over northern Utah with a unique display outside his home, but this weekend is the last chance to check it out.

Kelly Hertel’s fantastical display started in March with a single drawing of “Stitch” to cheer up his daughter in Kentucky at the beginning of the pandemic.

After that one drawing, his creative juices started to flow — the chalk on the driveway turned into acrylic paint down the sidewalk, which turned into airbrushing paint on the garage door, then all over the house.

More than six months and countless hours later, he's recreated characters from just about every Disney movie.

And just like at Disneyland, he even included "hidden Mickeys" for the kids to find.

People now drive from all over to see it in person.

You can check it out in the video above, or in person at 1167 N. 1120 West in Clinton. He plans to pressure-wash the sidewalks this weekend before colder temperatures move in.
