2021 Del Norte Tour of Lights is Dec. 3

DEL NORTE — The second annual Del Norte Tour of Lights will take place on Friday, Dec. 3. The event is organized by the Del Norte Chamber of Commerce.

“We would love for you to join us in celebrating the holiday season,” Chamber officials stated. “There is something for everyone — goodie bags, Santa, Christmas lights, and an impressive fireworks display.”

There are several opportunities to participate in the Tour of Lights this year. 

Residents and businesses are encouraged to light up their homes and or businesses to light the way for the tour of cars.

The top-three best-decorated houses will each win a $250 prize. The best-decorated business will be recognized as well. The contest applies to Del Norte residents within city limits only. To be included in the contest, all decorations must be up by Dec. 3.

If decorating the house wasn’t enough and people can decorate their vehicle for the tour as well. The Chamber will also be giving out $100 prizes to the top-three best-decorated cars.

People do not need to decorate their car to join the tour of cars, but it is encouraged.

Cars will line up on French Street by 5:30 p.m. and at 6 p.m. Santa will lead the tour in one of the Del Norte Fire Department’s fire trucks. The exact location of the parade line-up and a map of the tour will be posted on the Chamber’s website, www.DelNorteChamber.org, prior to Dec. 3.

After viewing the lights, fireworks will launch from the “D” on Lookout Mountain and will be seen best on the east side of town. The fireworks show will begin at 7 p.m.
