CINDY LANE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS
Each year, the Wawona Ranch Estates community decorates their homes bright Christmas lights and decorations. Homeowners usually put up their decorations the day after Thanksgiving and take them down the day after Christmas. Cindy Lane is located in Clovis behind the Willow Station shopping center just East of Willow and Alluvial. For an article of last year’s Christmas at Cindy Lane, read Cindy Lane provides light art, decorations (VIDEO).

CANDLELIGHT CHRISTMAS
Candlelight Christmas takes place every year on Huntington Boulevard and Sixth St. The tradition was given it’s name because lampposts are decorated like candles.
