Trails Holiday Lights, 2008

Filed under: Christmas Lights ::

Congratulations to each of this year’s winners!  Each won a $100 gift certificate to Lowe’s.

With one winner on the corner of Portland Street, we couldn’t get everything into one shot – so imagine the following two, side by side …

East Portland …

This same homeowner by the way, took his winnings from last year, hurried off to Lowe’s after-Christmas  60% off sale, and loaded his pickup with more.  He keeps raising the bar for the rest of us!

Here’s another winner, just a little west of the home pictured above.

These two ol' duffers, as they refer to themselves, always have something fun going on with their displays.

For the third consecutive year The Trails has participated in  Arizona’s “Getting Arizonans Involved in Neighborhoods” events.  Hundreds of such get-togethers took place on October 4th all across Arizona.  Some of the police and fire personnel said there were 17 other such events just in Scottsdale, south of Thomas Road.  Here are some of the pics from the event …
