Let there be lights – holiday lights! Each December, Petaluma turns into a City of Lights. Tour the town, east to west – and don’t forget downtown.
Pick up a map at the Petaluma Visitors Center, 210 Lakeville St. It’s open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Then cruise the streets, decide which is the absolute best and vote at visitpetaluma.com, as the lavishly trimmed houses and businesses compete in various categories.
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at the sparkling fun, with a few must sees, followed by all the addresses on this year’s lights tour.
Did we forget any? Help spread the word by adding your address or the address of a great holiday display you’ve seen to our holiday lights list. Send the address, a description of the lights and a photo (if available) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
