Safety first

Once your itinerary is complete, you can decide whether you park your car or drive by the display. Be mindful of other visitors wanting to see the Christmas Lights. Don’t be a nuisance and park in the middle of the road or stop in the middle of the road. It can be hard to predict which houses will get a heavy influx of visitors, so make the decision at the time of your arrival to park or drive by.

Be considerate of the neighbouring properties as well and ensure you don’t park on their driveway or in front of their driveway if you choose to walk to the lights display.


To make the night even more fun for the kids, get them to wear glow sticks. This will help you, and the drive by traffic, see your kids.
