Chilliwack asked for suggestions for annual tour of lights

Self-guided tours of Christmas lights across Chilliwak have become an extremely popular activity

Ready for some Christmas magic?

At this time of year, some citizens of Chilliwack get really serious about putting up elaborate and awe-inspiring displays of Christmas lights.

Once again the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB) is collecting addresses of some of the best and most attractive displays, in time for this year’s Christmas Lights Tour.

Every year they prepare a list of addresses and make it available in The Progress for anyone wanting to toodle around town taking in the sights and sounds of all the seasonal displays.

It started as a contest more than 20 years ago. But the same people kept winning so they turned it into an annual tour of lights for everyone to enjoy.

Self-guided tours have become an extremely popular activity in Chilliwack over the years.

“The holiday season is upon us and that means we are collecting addresses for this years Christmas Lights Tour!” CADREB wrote on their page. “Please submit any addresses to be included by commenting or DM.”

See the post CADREB Lights Tour

The CADREB Christmas Lights Tour list will be published in the Chilliwack Progress edition of December 15. It will be in the last Real Estate Review of the year.

MORE: 100 addresses in 2016

The listings sometimes include different suggested routes based on the various neighbourhoods, including Chilliwack Proper, Fairfield Island, Sardis, Promontory, the Eastern Hillside and Rosedale.
