MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Wagner family has wrapped up another year of dancing into Christmas.  

For five years now, the Wagners have donned their red Santa suits, pressed play on their music sound system and boogied outside their Moon Valley home for hundreds of spectators.

"Somehow we got started with music and one Santa and now we've got 12 Santas so now we can't stop," said Mike Wagner.

He says the neighborhood near Central and Thunderbird avenues already had a tradition of families parading through to check out holiday light displays. When the Wagners set up their own display, one thing led to another.

"We have a ball with it, but we're encouraged by neighbors and the community, too.  The community's very involved with Christmas Eve," says Wagner.
