Drive-by holiday lights

If your family likes to see what do-it-yourself lights aficionados can dream up, try the Sky Island neighborhood in Bonney Lake, where neighbors try to outdo each other with amazing light displays, including some set to music.

The Lake Wilderness neighborhood in Maple Valley has also had many brightly lit homes in the past.

The Very Merry Christmas House in Kent makes a drive-by-worthy display with just one house!

While it’s obviously free to drive yourself around, you may want to bring some canned food, as some houses take donations on behalf of the food bank.

If you have a favorite South Sound-area event we missed, or a seasonal deal we should know about, let us know in the comments. Happy holidays!
