Loop of Lights, San Tan Valley

Friday and Saturday we stayed pretty close to home doing some much needed chores. Sunday we had made arrangements for dinner with friends we met last year at Peace Arch RV Park. Gerry and FranCeen own a home in the San Tan Valley and graciously invited us to dinner and then we walked the Loop of Lights, located 1/2 mile from their house.

Great Margarita's Gerry and your Thai Chicken is awesome Fran. Thanks again. You have a beautiful house.

The loop of lights comprised of about 4 streets they close to traffic every evening after 6:30 pm for about 3 weeks for pedestrians only. The last house on the route was done up with synchronized music, served up popcorn to everyone and all the kids just loved it. Here is a sampling of the decorated houses. Most houses sported some lights but there were about 1/2 dozen scrooges that kept their houses dark. You would think that they would be guilted into it!

Ray, Deb, FranCeen and Gerry

The last house (above) with the huge spotlights on the roof top. Awesome. It was hard for Ray to get a good picture of this one as the lights kept going on and off to the music and with his shutter speed set to take a few seconds it was challenging.
A lovely hour's walk. It certainly gives you that Christmas feeling.


  1. Fabulous pictures Ray! This would really put you in the Christmas mood.

    1. We are thoroughly enjoying the Christmas Displays. You sure have a great one at Peace Arch ... snow scene included for free!
