FRESNO, Calif. (KGPE) — Christmas Tree Lane will be back in Fresno on Wednesday night for members of the community to enjoy.
The tradition goes back 99 years and each December, North Van Ness Boulevard in Fig Garden becomes a one-way street lined with hundreds of trees and homes decorated with lights and decorations.
“It’s just awesome. It’s a tradition for Fresno,” said chairman of the event, Dean Alexander. “We’ve got generations of people coming out here; grandparents, daughters, children. It’s just fantastic.”
Alexander said due to the pandemic and California regulations, guests will not be allowed to walk Christmas Tree Lane this year, but fun new surprises are in store for those who choose to attend the event.
“We’ve hidden reindeer and [have] new neighbors and great displays,” Alexander said.
A total of eight reindeer and Rudolph the reindeer will be hidden for guests to find while driving through the festive lights and decorations.
Christmas Tree Lane will be open on Sunday through Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., and on Friday and Saturday from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. at 4946 N. Van Ness Avenue.
The last night for Christmas Tree Lane is Christmas, Dec. 25.
The entrance is located at Shields Avenue and the lane ends at the intersection of North Palm and West Shaw avenues.
