A-List: The best Christmas lights in St. George 2015

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.

I visited each home listed on the map, and I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed.

If you haven’t taken the tour yet, here’s what you can expect to see – including a house that isn’t on the map! (Homes are listed in the order I visited them.)

    Toquerville! Lots of very good displays, and one of the best (if not the best) in the county- 1 1/2 blocks west of the main drag on Old Church Rd. Check it out! Well worth the drive.

    LOL ! Xmas lighting. nothing like letting burglars know which houses to break into eh ? That’s the same people that set boxes outside next to the garbage cans so the burglars know what’s in the house.
