KAMLOOPS - Nothing quite says Christmas like thousands of little twinkling lights, and every year our neighbours race to beat the inevitable cold snap to get their displays up and ready for the first snowfall.

All right, let’s be honest, some neighbours keep up their lights year-round. But they are not usually the ones who put the time and effort into such magnificent displays they are put on people’s to-do lists come Christmas. And for the most part, they are not the ones that have made our list.

Christmas light driving tours are one of our favourite ways to spend a chilly December evening. We bundle up, grab a hot chocolate and hit the road in hopes of finding some cheer-inspiring displays.

To help you plan your own driving tour we’ve put together a map of some of the best places we know of to see Christmas lights in Kamloops.

Some we’ve seen ourselves and some we’ve been told about by readers, if you see any we're missing, let us know. We will update the map and the address list below as we receive them.
