Fresh Air Family’s Wacky Tacky Christmas Light Tour Rides Again

Thousands of lights! Gravity defying displays! Blow-ups with enough hot air for a presidential election! Join Fresh Air Family img_1160as we seek out the best, worst and wackiest light displays in town, all on a two-hour guided bus ride. See the Hanukkah House with its Joy to the World, without the “j,” Santa’s Trailer Park with a walking trail of giant blow-ups, and the War Eagle House that combines both of the state’s major holidays.

Fresh Air Family is excited to announce their annual Wacky Tacky Christmas Light Tour, scheduled for Sunday, December, 11, Tuesday, December 13 and Wednesday, December 14, starting at Avondale Brewing Company. All proceeds go to scholarships for students in our award-winning science camp, Gross Out Camp.
