Here's an Enquirer story about North College Hill's "Santa Z," whose high-budget display is lit up again this year. His is the house I call the "East Pole," though they refer to it as the South Pole - all because there's another see-it-to-believe-it show a couple of miles west along the same street.

Default marcrest

There is a house on Marcrest Lane off of School Section Road in Bridgetown that is absolutely stunning. Not overdone, just Better Homes & Gardens beautiful. It's a contemporary home with a to-die-for wraparound porch, and the lights the family puts up take my breath away every year.

No one's looked for the gaudiest light shows this year?
Hopefully I can get to the "Poles" along West Galbraith tonight. The block in northern Lockland (Home St? Jonte?) which used to be ablaze with lights every year has stayed dark this week. But some residents of North Cooper Ave have done their part to keep Duke Energy happy.

The house on Fairpark in Carthage which has been amazingly lighted for the last couple years has even more lights this year. It's a block or two from St. Charles Borromeo.

Checked it out on the way to the airport last night!
The house is on the odd-numbered (west) side of Fairpark Ave between North Bend Rd & Seymour, "you can't miss it." Fairpark leads into Vine St at its north end (by the former Jennings Buick dealership "if you're old enough") and then runs parallel to Vine from there. What the display lacks in quantity and variety it more than makes up for with all the timed lights - "tune in 107.5 FM" reads the sign in front. Recreational drug use before viewing is NOT recommended.
Thanks for the tip!!!

We were in the area so we drove by again last night. On our first trip the entire roof was covered in a blanket of lights, but last night they were off. Love the flashing lights up the trees, though. Looks like reverse-direction lightning.
