As you are getting ready to enjoy everything this wonderful holiday season has to offer, make sure to include an Eden Prairie holiday lights tour.
People come from far and wide to experience Eden Prairie’s dazzling spectacle of lights, and this year many residents have already set the stage for this magical adventure.
Outdoor holiday lights were introduced in North America after the first safe outdoor Christmas light bulbs were invented. The lights appeared 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.
Touring these incredible displays is a multi-generational activity and is loved by all. Make an evening of it. Load up the car, and don’t forget to fill up your thermos. With a bit of holiday music and your loved ones nearby, a holiday light tour is an entertaining yet simple way to celebrate the spirit of the season. When your adventure is finished, cozy up by the fireplace and relive your favorite scenes from the evening.
Eden Prairie Local News has once again created a convenient holiday lights map. (Click the above green link titled EP holiday lights map.)
Over 25 residences and neighborhoods are featured on this interactive map, making finding these hidden gems even easier.
