The 4th annual John Christmas Light Tour is here! For the second year, I have partnered with the North Okanagan Neurological Association (NONA) to help bring awareness and donations to their valuable programs. NONA's programs help families and caregivers of children with a wide range of developmental challenges in our community. Each home on the tour was sponsored by a local business that made a donation to NONA (see sponsors at the bottom of the page). Every home will be clearly marked with a John Christmas Light Tour sign and the logo of this year's sponsor. I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the local businesses that supported this amazing cause and to the home owners for creating these amazing displays.
Each home was handpicked from the Vernon, BC area for the 2022 season. The list includes my family's favourite holiday houses - keep your eye out for our favourite holiday grinch and the life-sized elf that will be moving around to different homes on the tour throughout the month! If you follow the driving route, you will pass many noteworthy homes along the way. A friendly reminder not to go onto private property (without permission) and some lights may turn off at 9pm.
Grab your family, warm beverages, favourite Christmas snacks and follow the ordered list below.
