Last year’s EPLN Eden Prairie holiday lights map was a hit. So, we’re bringing it to you again. Enjoy an evening with your family viewing some of the creative displays in the city this holiday season!
Outdoor holiday lights were introduced in North America after the first safe outdoor Christmas light bulbs were invented.
The lights made their appearance in the 1930s to spread a bit of holiday spirit during the Depression. It may not be the Depression-era, but we still look forward to the first twinkling of color that announces the season of giving.
Eden Prairie residents are generous with their many displays of holiday lights and pave the way for the perfect family event.
Enjoy the city’s transformation from early winter’s dull gray to a dazzling palette of colors.
Appreciating holiday lights is a multi-generational event, so put grandma and grandpa and the kiddos in the car and head off down the road for a light-filled excursion.
Fill up your thermos with hot chocolate, tune your radio to some holiday jazz and over the hills you’ll go to see a kaleidoscope of colors.
Afterward, cozy up by the fire while reliving your favorites from the evening.
To help you find these visionary treasures easier, Eden Prairie Local News has created a holiday lights map. (Click on the above green link.)
Enjoy the adventure, and thank you to the residents of Eden Prairie for making the holidays special for all.
