It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas on the streets of Kelowna. Exterior light displays have a way of warming up the streets during the cold winter nights, while also giving a sense of the spirit of the season. And, whether your prefer more of a subdued contemporary light display (think warm white lights), a more traditional colourful display, or you like to see full-on spirit (think Griswold’s) there are plenty of homes, streets and neighbourhoods that are sure to get you in the Christmas spirit.
As Kelowna REALTORS, our team puts a lot of kms on our vehicles each day and evening and so, we are in the know of the homes and streets that are MUST sees. What we find, is usually where there is one amazing home, if you spend a few minutes driving around the neighbouring streets, you are sure to find more that are worthy of your oohs and aahs, too.
So, fill up your cars, grab some hot cocoa or hot apple cider, play your favourite Christmas playlist and enjoy the effort of others.
