They tend to be busy during the weekend so make sure to call ahead and look at the lights with your family and friends! Want to treat yourself? Grab a hot chocolate or a milkshake for the drive through.

2.) Buying Christmas Trees– If you still haven’t put up your tree or want a new one for the next year now’s the time to get them! You can also support any local businesses you know! (Ex: Holiday Memories Farm, Modlin’s Tree Farm, Hemlock Farm and more.)
