Comments From Last Year's Event

   "It was the best $25 I ever spent. So many houses that I could never find on my own. You saved me miles and miles of endless driving. It was superb, thanks for event."

Comments From Last year's event

"I have to tell you. This was a spectacular tour, it took me to some amazing houses and we saw plenty of lights in about 2 and a half hours. I would recommend this event for families and  everyone. How you could put together a tour like this with such a small window of time to do it is amazing!"

Comments From Last Year's Event

"The Christmas Light Tour in an incredible journey  into Christmas spirit and light. My family and I loved it and we will be back next year. You could charge double the $25 donation price and we would pay it. So much fun. How do you do it?"
