Clear weather is predicted for this weekend, followed by rain early next week.
Therefore, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you get out to see the lights this weekend, as the next chance to see them won’t come until Christmas night and after.
Remember, Bad Weather (rain, wind) = No Lights, for the majority of big displays.
I will be out myself visiting displays Fri-Sun nights.
I’ve got plans to visit the Rt 7 displays, the Rt 95S displays and the Rt66W/Rt123S displays, but traffic will decide which I go see each of those nights.
Remember the ROUTES page allows you to find Displays by major roads or by city.
And a fan of the site created and shared an Interactive Google map for the Virginia displays.
If you see a late model silver Mustang convertible, it will be the Holly, so say Hi.
And remember, the Water Skiing Santa show on Dec. 24 at 1pm in Old Town Alexandria, goes On rain, snow or shine. I help out as an Elf in the crowd, passing out candy canes. http://www.waterskiingsanta.com
Clips from my videos showing several of the displays on the list were featured in a NASA story about measuring the glow of holiday lights from space.
The article features a photo of #18 - 9804 Kirktree Court, Fairfax, VA.
The interview portion of the video shows #3 - 8515 Innisfree Drive, Springfield (moved in 2014) in the background.
The video includes:
MD #5. 1665 N Portal Dr NW, Washington, D.C. (Bishop’s House)
#12 - 3912 Lincolnshire Street, Annandale, VA
#46 - 7104 Idylwood Road, Falls Church, VA
#7 -7723 Fisher Drive, Falls Church, VA (off for 2014).
A collection of videos I’ve taken of the Light Displays can be viewed at:
Call for Competitors
And finally, I was contacted by The ABC Great Christmas Lights Fight people who asked that I pass along this flyer. They are already looking for competitors for next year. If you’ve seen the show, you know what’s involved.
