Vernon homes light up for Christmas

Christmas spirit is shining brightly around town.

More and more residents are plugging in to decorating their homes with bright lights, blow ups, music and more.

For those wanting to take it all in, here is a list of more than 30 locations lit up brighter than your average Christmas tree.

The list has been provided by Tourism Vernon and realtor John Christmas, from his annual Christmas Light Tour. The local realtor has partnered with the North Okanagan Neurological Association to raise funds for NONA.

“We are excited to join the John Christmas Light Tour and add on to this community event. There are so many beautifully decorated homes in Vernon that participate in this event, and NONA is looking forward to adding on to this and making something special for the children in our community,” said Helen Armstrong, executive director at NONA.

NONA will be collecting cash donations Saturday, Dec. 18 from 4-6 p.m. at 2802 34th St.

Predator Ridge is also inviting residents to come see the lights at the golf resort community. A few homes even topped the Predator Ridge light up competition: 124 Mashie Crescent, 115 Longspoon Drive and 436 Falcon Point Way.

SilverStar Mountain Resort is also decked out for the season with not just lights, but giveaways, events, donation collections and more.
