And what about the houses that sync their lights to music? Nope, I hadn’t heard of the sync’d lights myself til just last night! We don’t regularly read the Bee, so we apparently have missed the articles in recent years…a friend of mine I ran into for the first time in years at Target (of all places) last night, told me about the sync’d lights of our area. (Thanks Wendy!!! Great seeing you again!!)
I had heard about them on the net, but never had heard about local houses that did this! I’m really excited to check it out!
So here’s a list I’ve compiled from Google searches…have at it! And let me know if you know of any more! (Jump to the bottom to look at the map.) And here’s a website I just discovered that also catalogs lights in the Valley! (Although at the writing of this, I already have all those houses on this page here. Some of them are part of some of the communities below, so I didn’t feel the need to specify specific houses.)
Areas with lots of lights, to drive or walk:

Come join us tonight at 6pm in Old Town Clovis for the annual Children’s Electric Christmas Parade! Our family will be there! Bundle up to keep warm!!
We discovered this street years ago and last night the kids and I went looking for it again…thought it needed to be shared with those that haven’t been there at Xmas time yet.
I would say it rivals Xmas tree lane and Huntington blvd w/Xmas lights! The difference is that the houses are much closer together and it just feels like more to me. Also lots of people walking, any day, people out front of houses giving out hot cocoa, Santa visits in one person’s garage (and a line waiting to visit him), and not tons and tons of cars. There’s plenty, sure, but you can
choose which way to go, you don’t have to just follow the traffic…there’s quite a few streets and culdesacs to detour at, and its just more homey and down-to-earth, in my mind. I love it!
To find Cindy ave, you would go west on Alluvial from Railroad Park at Peach and Alluvial, and you’ll see Cindy on the right, a block or 2 past the Peach. You can’t miss it. When you look down the street, its ALLLLLL lights! There are other ways into the neighborhood but I find this the easiest way to remember.
Anyhoo…hope others enjoy it as well!
For a very enlightening article on “The Real Origins of Halloween” (and no, it has nothing to do with anything evil or satanic), check out the article by the same name! Its long but very well worth reading! I highly recommend it!
Hope everyone is enjoying their special family time!
Don’t forget to track Santa! It’s an exciting & fun family tradition!!!
