Our Favorite Six Neighborhood Christmas Lights
1. Beauclaire Lane
This magnificent Polisseni home at 16 Beauclaire Lane is eccentric all year long, but comes to life during the holidays! The lawn sculptures and decorations are WOW-worthy!
While this home in particular is exceptional, the surrounding neighbors around the cul-de-sac and on the streets that wind along the hill behind Casa Larga also decorate which makes it an interesting drive-through.
2. Christmas Lights on Rahway Road
Many of the homes in the Rahway community (Rahway, Dawson, Winter Hazel) participate in the annual Christmas lights extravaganza. Some homes are lit to festive extremes, while others are elegant, monotone, or traditional.
Winter Hazel is a cul-de-sac so you can see all of the homes a second time as you drive back out toward Lyell Rd.
3. Christmas Lights on Colony Lane
This Henrietta cul-de-sac is decked with lights & music synced across multiple homes.
Santa visits with a cast of characters Friday & Saturday nights from 6:30-8pm until Christmas. It’s one of the few neighborhoods where you are encouraged to park & walk around!
Join the Facebook group to stay informed of the festivities.
They are collecting non-perishable food items for the Rush Henrietta Area Food Terminal.
4. Christmas Lights on Stonebridge Lane
The entire cul-de-sac neighborhood gets decked out in elegant holiday bling.
5. Christmas Lights on Endicar Drive
This cul-de-sac neighborhood is lit! Multiple homes participate to bring the holiday cheer.
6. Christmas Lights on Middle Road
This is the only home in our top six not on a cul-de-sac. It’s a tough place to pull over and appreciate but has to be seen nonetheless! This home at 1361 Middle Road near the Rush-Henrietta town line is absolutely worth a slow-roll by.
