Overview

'Tis the season to come on by and admire the most spectacular display of lights and colors to adorn these Brooklyn homes during the festive season. You will have the opportunity to see Dyker Heights which is famous for its Christmas lights and decorations displays erected every year by its residents. It has been called the "undisputed capital of Christmas pageantry" and the "King of the Christmas Lights". The lights are now the core of the Dyker Heights identify because the whole community - not just one home - participates. Most holiday decorations in the area are not erected by the homeowners but by local decorating companies with costs ranging from $1,000 to $20,000 or more depending on the scale of the display.  This is a tradition that began in the 1980's and is more alive today than ever before.

If this does not make you want to start ordering more decorations and get you in the spirit I don't know what else will.

Fantastic tour - well worth doing if you can. We enjoyed it even in the -20 weather. You are outside a lot so layers are the key.

Great trip!
Our tour guides were extremely helpful and informative. They dropped us off only 2 minutes away from the best decorated blocks.
They were Italian and kindly gave us their opinions of which restaurants and pizza was the most authentic to Italian cuisine.

Thanks again.
