Holiday Lights

Uploaded: Dec 19, 2019
With all of the rain in the forecast, I wasn’t sure if we would do our yearly stroll down Christmas Tree Lane.  We love walking down Fulton and admiring all of the decorations, but it is more challenging to keep three kids happy when they are wet, cold and tired. Maybe this is the year to try driving down the street rather than walking.

A few days ago I stumbled upon Candy Cane Lane in Redwood City.  

I had never heard of this block, but I saw a car turn down Dewey Street and I couldn’t help but notice the bright lights and amazing decorations.  



We turned around and all enjoyed driving slowly down the road.  Tonight we went back and strolled down the street.  It was short, beautifully decorated, and a wonderful way to spend time together with the kids.  

What are your favorite holiday light displays in the area?
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
