Vernon realtor John Christmas releases annual list of best holiday light shows

Follow the sparkling lights

A Vernon realtor with a very appropriate name has released his annual list of addresses for a charity-driven Christmas lights tour.

John Christmas has compiled 20 of the best holiday light shows for his NONA Lights For Kids self-guided tour.

"I hand selected 20 of the best homes in Vernon. These homes are spectacular!" says Christmas.

It's the fourth year for the tour and second for its partnership with the North Okanagan Neurological Association.

NONA's programs help families and caregivers of children with a wide range of developmental challenges.

Each home on the tour was sponsored by a local business contributing to the cause.

"The list includes my family's favourite holiday houses – keep your eye out for our favourite holiday grinch and the life-sized elf that will be moving around to different homes on the tour throughout the month," says Christmas.

His website has a Google Maps guide to the tour and link to donate to NONA. It will also be updated as more homes are added to the list.

"If you follow the driving route, you will pass many noteworthy homes along the way," he adds.

A Lights for Kids drive-thru fundraiser event will also take place Dec. 17 5-8 p.m. at NONA.

Homes on the list include:

  • 1. 364 Marmot Court
  • 2. 1430 Copper Mountain Court
  • 3. 6653 Blackcomb Way
  • 4. 5100 Dixon Dam Road
  • 5. 4188 East Vernon Road
  • 6. 1206 43rd Avenue
  • 7. 1805 32nd Avenue
  • 8. 2802 34 Street NONA
  • 9. 3302 21 Avenue
  • 10. 3408 20 Avenue
