Leave info or read the comments on the website or our Facebook page as many neighbors are adding their favorites and homeowners that have decorated are giving us their schedules.

While it’s great to visit the light displays throughout the holiday season, one neighborhood in Forsyth County offers a “Night of Lights” for one night during the holiday season where the neighborhood lights up the houses and luminaries throughout the subdivision in support of a good cause.
