PHOENIX, AZ-(3TV/CBS5) - It is the most wonderful time of the year and that means neighborhood holiday light displays. Here are some of the best and brightest light displays around the Phoenix area and other places. The best part is these are all free of charge and family friendly. If you have a dazzling light display in your neighborhood, we would love to hear about it!
"Christmas Lee" and his Arcadia display
Families are so excited that "Christmas Lee" and his Arcadia Christmas home is back! Last year, they went dark after the City of Phoenix told him he couldn't sell hot chocolate (and ornaments) to help offset the electric bill.
This year the city compromised and told him he can take donations for the hot chocolate...so the light switch was flipped back on! The display will be up until the new year.
