GREAT FALLS — "Candy Cane Lane" is back in Great Falls - and bigger than ever this year.
It started out five years ago as one street of houses decked out with Christmas and holiday decorations in the Skyline neighborhood. Organizers say it has grown and expanded to other areas of town.
Every year, members of the Great Falls Early Education Association drive around to find the best houses and adds them to a map. This map is then created with a fun scavenger hunt. They pick two days where they promote light-seeing with family and friends. This year, the two nights are Friday, December 20, and Saturday, December 21, and the event will be at Jaycee Park (23rd Avenue NW and 4th Street).
The Facebook event page says: "We are excited this is our 5th Anniversary and how much this event has grown! We will have Santa and much more out this year so we hope to see you out! This event is ALWAYS FREE. We do take monetary donations if you would like to give and these funds are used by our group to further educate local child care providers and resources for early education. We will also be selling our annual ornaments."
