Best place to view Christmas lights

Prestonwood Forest (A.K.A. “Christmas Lights Neighborhood”) is once again holding their “Nite of Lites” festival.  A long standing tradition of over 36 years, the Nite of Lites has the residents of Prestonwood Forest going all out for the holidays as they decorate their homes to the max.

Local newspapers and television stations, Southern Living , FOX News, and the Travel Channel have all written stories about or done programs on the Christmas lights adorning the homes in Prestonwood Forest. This year HGTV may be added to the long list of media outlets that have produced segments on the Nite of Lites festival.

Just about every home in the Prestonwood Forest subdivision of 750 homes gets involved in the Nite of Lites event. With almost every block in the subdivision choosing a different holiday theme. One of the themes is based on “The Night Before Christmas” in which each home on the block displays a page of the story.

Judges hand out awards for the “Best House”, “Best Block”, “Runner-up Block”, “Best Mailbox”, “Best Door”,  “Best Lamp Post”, and a new category making its debut this year of “Best Culdesac”. The 2011 winners have been announced and each pin on the map represents an award winner.
