Neighborhood Lights



Every year our neighbor enters a local boat parade. His displays are always excellent - he makes everything every year from scratch - he even paints all of his lights the custom colors that apply to the theme. This year he took 1st place overall in the Sarasota, FL boat parade and 2nd in the Venice, FL boat parade. If you've never been to a boat parade you should really put it on your list of things to do it really is spectacular. When our children were little we went every year in our own boat and watched from the water. We don't go as faithfully as we used to but, thanks to Mr. N our neighbor we get to have a special display right on our own street. Merry Christmas!!
