OPINION — St. George isn’t typically known for its bright lights or night life.
Unless, of course – it’s December.
Hedgehog Electric recently released their Christmas Light Spectacular Map, and cars have been lining the neighborhoods ever since to see this year’s biggest and brightest displays.
Two homes in the area are even receiving national attention and have competed in ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight (more on that in the video above.)
There’s also a scavenger hunt associated with the map this year; those who participate will be entered to win a 55″ HDTV and Roku Stick from Boulevard Home Furnishings. To download the map and get your clues, click here.
