TUCSON, Ariz. — Tonight a holiday tradition here in Tucson lights up once again. Twinkling lights and holiday cheer return on the first night of the Winterhaven Festival of Lights. One home in the neighborhood is decked out in University of Arizona basketball decorations.

"Me and my wife were born and raised here in Tucson, we met at UA. So it kind of grew, we started three years ago and we've kind of added to it since then," said Clayton Robideau, who owns the UA decorated house.

Robideau and his wife have since turned this into a yearly tradition. With the logo on the roof, along with Wilbur, this completely full display is mainly dedicated to UA basketball and its greats.

"Jason Terry, Mike Bobby, Andre Iguodala, Luke Walton, Richard Jefferson, Michael Dickerson, Sean Elliot, Steve Kerr, so it's kind of like the history of UA basketball. And then we've got the big pictures of Lute Olson as well," said Robideau.

Robideau says being born and raised here, he was able to witness some of these iconic players play throughout the 80s. So he thinks its only right to show his love for the school and the team year after year.

"We've been season ticket holders for basketball for the last couple years so it's been important to us and our love for basketball has always been there. So it's kind of important for us to show that," said Robideau.
