This is one Christmas activity you don’t want to miss. Each year, the residents of Northgate Estates in Fort Walton Beach come together for an amazing display of luminaries and Christmas lights. Hundreds of houses within this neighborhood display massive Christmas decorations. The sense of community is incredible as you see many residents of the neighborhood celebrating the event with outdoor block parties surrounding a toasty, warm fire pit while waiving to the thousands of onlookers. As you slowly drive through the subdivision, you’ll see dancing lights on houses, religious displays, Santa Claus, and other Christmas characters. This will become a new favorite tradition to get you into the Christmas spirit. Check out the video below for a preview of what you will see (video from 2016).
