We Just Happened to be Driving By
My daughter and I had a serendipitous discovery the other night when we stumbled upon the Glennross community Christmas lights. We had just finished taking a tour of the Alum Creek “Fantasy of Lights” and were headed home to Delaware on Cheshire Road when we made this fascinating find at Glenross. Not ready for the evening to end just yet, we decided to turn around and take a drive through the neighborhood.
Turning The Evening Around
As we entered the neighborhood, we saw a sign telling us to turn our radio to 94.1 FM. That’s when we realized that over 300 homes in the community had choreographed their lights to the music on the radio.
This Delaware, Ohio Christmas Light Show is FANTASTIC!
We were absolutely delighted as we drove through the neighborhood, taking in the brilliant, sparkling, and dazzling display of lights that seemed to dance in time to the music. The entire Glenross neighborhood was illuminated, and it was a gorgeous sight to see. As we drove, we were captivated by the lit up reindeer, Santa Claus, snowmen, and other Christmas light displays that were scattered throughout the neighborhood.
This light show, which is billed as “Ohio’s largest free light show,” includes the neighborhoods of Glenross, Glenross North, Braumiller, and Dornoch Estates subdivisions, located between US 23 and South Old State Rd. For the best light show experience, their website suggests starting at the entrances of Ballater Drive, Eagle Walk Road, Sycamore Lane, or Braumiller Crossing Drive.
More Than Just A Christmas Light Show
In addition to the beautiful lights, there is also an interactive scavenger hunt on the website that includes finding snowmen, Santa, Rudolph, Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen,” the Grinch, and even Clark Griswold from “Christmas Vacation.” This added an extra special touch to the light show and made it even more enjoyable for my daughter and I.
We were surprised and delighted to discover the Christmas “Lights of Glenross” and it made the perfect end to our trip through the Alum Creek “Fantasy of Lights.” This is definitely something that we plan on making a yearly Christmas tradition. If you’re in the area, and looking for something affordably fun for the family, I highly recommend checking out the “Lights of Glenross.” You will not be dissapointed.
