Brake Lights I warn you. Do not go see the lights on December 23rd - 24th between 7-9pm. Why? Because you will be stuck in line for an hour or so. The only lights you will see for awhile are these...which are the ones we saw! Go on a day earlier than the 23rd or after the 26th, which is when many smart locals go to avoid the long line.
