This home is dressed to the nines! Those who attended the 35th Annual Christmas Parlour Tour, which featured this home, can attest that these homeowners provide lovely decor both inside and out.
This display is complete with Santa, Mickey, a puppy, and our new favorite: a crazy Christmas robot. Be sure to drive by for a giggle and a smile.
This home is known year-round for the Pink Elephant out front, but we’re equally delighted with the Christmas cut-outs and the way every inch is lit up to create a bright and happy display.
A beacon of lights flashing will guide your way to this most festive of all holiday light displays. Tune your radio to the custom radio station displayed on the sign in the front yard, and watch a light show that’s timed to the music and special effects you hear.
We have it on good authority that these folks pooled their resources to help newer neighbors really shine bright during the holidays. There is truly magic in the making of a community.
First Avenue has really taken on a new life with the magic of light. Volunteer efforts steered by the Albany Downtown Association Design Committee have led the way to brightening up Albany’s downtown during the holidays.
