Here is a list of some of the Christmas light displays currently open in the Tri-Cities:
• 1417 Garibaldi Pl.: John and Trudy invite you to enjoy their homemade Christmas for the 34th year. More than 100 hand-painted display pieces on the house and in the yard. Two themes: traditional Christmas with manger scene, shepherds, wise men and angels; and contemporary Christmas with Santa, reindeer, toy trains, nutcrackers and singing snowmen — all lit up with more than 6,000 lights, which are on from 4:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. daily. If you enjoy the lights, consider an online donation to Share Family and Community Services (www.sharesociety.ca).
• 927 Lillian St.: The Romas family has a pretty display of thousands of twinkling lights, polar bears, penguins, Santa, shivering snowman, horse and carriage, trees, reindeer, snowflakes, presents and more. Open daily through Jan. 1 from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m.
• 1314 Paula Pl.: Gabriel, 12, and his grandfather have been decorating the front of their townhouse for the past four years. Even though his grandpa is having knee replacement surgery, he took the time to help decorate once again. There are about 4,000 lights, illuminated icicles and arches, trees, candy canes and a blow-up Santa with reindeer. The display is on daily from 5 to 10 p.m.
• 3313 Rae St.: Miracle on Rae Street is a magical experience of more than 200,000 lights synchronized to music, plus ground displays. A highlight is the 90-foot decorated tree. Open through Jan. 2, Sunday to Thursday, 5 to 10 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays, 5 to 11 p.m. Contributions to the Share food bank are gratefully accepted. (Note: As a courtesy to neighbours, please don’t block or turn around in driveways. Due to the high volume of traffic, you may want to park on Prairie Avenue and walk the few steps to view the display.)
• 1228 Oriole Pl.: Thousands of lights are set to 10 different songs on 48 channels. Lights are on from 5:30 to 10 p.m. nightly. Donations are accepted for the Royal Columbian Hospital NICU.
• Astoria Retirement Residence, 2245 Kelly Ave.: Christmas lights on the building programmed to music at 88.1 FM.
