Starlight Circle Christmas Lights
Starlight Circle is a neighborhood on the north side of Santee just off Magnolia Avenue run amok with colorful lights, eclectic holiday displays, and crowds of people gawking as they stroll or drive down the street. Folks can drive through the neighborhood but are encouraged to get out of their cars (parking is at nearby Santana High School) and walk around, as many homeowners stand in front of their homes serving snacks. Handmade holiday displays of fun characters as well as religious ones made lovingly by homeowners deck the lawns. The light-display tradition started soon after the neighborhood was built in the early 1980s and many of the homeowners take Halloween just as seriously. Christmas-lights enthusiasts can enjoy the show from 6 to 11 p.m. every night until December 26.
Ongoing until Tuesday, December 26, 2017
