Pack up the car in Chilliwack for the annual tour of lights

CADREB’s Christmas Lights Tour has addresses of all the displays lighting up Chilliwack

It’s time to pack up the vehicle with wide-eyed ones for a tour of twinkling Christmas lights.

The Christmas Lights Tour list is ready with a list of stunning homes beautifully decorated for the 2017 holiday season.

The annual list of addresses is compiled by Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board, and printed every year in The Chilliwack Progress Real Estate Review, with the complete list available on the CADREB site.

The list has addresses listed based on neighbourhoods, including Chilliwack Proper, Fairfield Island, Sardis, Promontory, the Eastern Hillside and Rosedale, with driving tour maps.

A regular participant is the Jansen family on Raven Place in Sardis, and they are represented again this year at 45166 Raven Pl.

Another one that’s been wowing the crowds is the Palaniuk family light display at 7620 Diamond Crescent. They’ve been at it since 201o, and have a linked radio station to synchronize the experience of lights and music by tuning into 95.7 FM. See what they’ve done at their website here.

“It’s just spectacular,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz, who said she had to take a photo of the brilliant display. The homeowner starts work on the lighting display way back in the summer.

Too add a more exciting element to the Tour of Lights, print out “Christmas Lights Bingo” cards and play along for extra family fun. The bingo idea came from Jody Raabe, and the bingo cards can be found here.
