In 2020, as holiday traditions were paused for the pandemic, an Erie Facebook group was born to help spread holiday cheer.
Erie’s Best Lights now has 14,000 members and shares the best neighborhoods to visit for lights displays.
Users share photos and information and a map is generated to help you plan your route.
In 2020, I mapped out a route from Fairview to Harbor Creek, looking at more than 40 homes. I repeated that effort in 2021, too!
Visit the Erie’s Best Holiday Lights Facebook group here.
Be sure to visit Presque Isle, Asbury Woods and Perry Square, too!
There’s so much to do in Erie all throughout the year and especially during the holiday season.
