Welcome to the Great Christmas Light Driving Tour. We hope you enjoy driving by homes in our community decked out for the holiday season! TAVI will continue to update the map throughout the month of December. Feel free to register in the post below to be added to the map, and of course, check back so that you can visit all of the “new additions.” We wish you all a very happy, healthy and safe holiday season.
The Allentown Village Initiative (TAVI) is pleased to present the 2020 “Great Christmas Light Driving Tour” for Allentown and Upper Freehold. Residents are invited to register their decorated homes at the TAVI website to be included in an online map of decorated homes in the area. The map will be posted on the website beginning December 1, 2020 and will be updated throughout the month. With activities and travel limited, the Great Christmas Light Driving Tour offers a free, safe way to spread and enjoy some much-needed holiday spirit.
Participants are invited to begin their tour at the McCormicks’ home, located at 153 Route 526, Allentown, NJ 08501. While the McCormicks have been decorating for Christmas for many
years, this year’s completely outdoor, drive-thru display features a Christmas Village, nativity scene, over 100 decorated trees and about 50,000 lights spread over three acres. All are welcome to visit Monday – Thursday, 5-9 pm and Friday – Sunday 5-10 pm beginning December 4, 2020. There is no charge; canned goods for the Allentown Food Pantry are gratefully accepted.
For more information, please call (609) 208-9991. TAVI wishes everyone a very happy, safe, and healthy holiday season.
