The theme is: "Northern Lights: The Magical World of the Snow Queen."

The display's designer has started planning, sketching, cutting, crafting, sewing and building the display, which will transform the bank's downtown location into a winter wonderland.

The display will open right after Thanksgiving and it will be open until January 4th.

"What you'll see in the holiday design are custom costume creations on our Steiff animals and they're not easy to dress. Mark does a phenomenal job and this year our display will feature 120 of our Steiff animals," Kara Kaiser with BMO Harris Bank said.
