Waiting for Confirmation

Each year before I publish my list of lights displays I try to check in with each location to make sure they are running for the upcoming season.  The following is a list of addresses that have been on my list in the past, but I’m waiting for confirmation on whether they are operating this year.  As I hear from the location, I will move them out of this section!

Does your home have a light display you’d like us to include?  Submit the details here. 

Have you seen a home around town you think should be on the list?  Contact us!  

PLEASE NOTE – If you’d like to submit a house for our list, you must send the home’s exact address and if you have it, the time the displays run and/or a way to contact the homeowner.  We try to provide as much information to readers as we can so it’s easy for people to find the homes and know what days/times the lights will be on.
