The big "Move That Bus" moment, when Carl Hall and his family will see their new home built by ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," is scheduled for today.
The "reveal," as it's called on the show, could happen any time between 2 and 4 p.m. today. Spectators are encouraged to begin arriving as early as 10 a.m., said Mark Chamberlin, a local spokesman for the show. The show's producers are hoping for a big crowd in the morning for film footage.
The one-story ranch house will have been under construction for almost exactly a week when the Hall family gets the keys. They've been on a trip to Orlando, Fla., during construction.
Hall was paralyzed from the neck down after a traffic crash in Kingman County last June. He is married and has four children.
Producers are hoping for a large crowd at the reveal and encourage spectators to bring signs and also to bring snacks and wear weather-appropriate clothing. Cooler temperatures and rain are expected today, but the reveal will go on regardless of weather.
Spectators should park at Mel Hambelton Ford at 11771 W. Kellogg, and they'll be shuttled to a designated spectator area.
