The Allentown Village Initiative (TAVI) will present the 2020 “Great Christmas Light Driving Tour” for Allentown and Upper Freehold Township.

Residents are invited to register their decorated home at the TAVI website for inclusion in an online map of decorated homes in the area. The map will be posted on the TAVI website beginning Dec. 1 and will be updated throughout the month, according to a press release.

The Great Christmas Light Driving Tour is a free activity.

Participants are invited to begin their tour at the McCormick home, 153 Route 526, Allentown. While the McCormicks have been decorating for Christmas for many years, this year’s completely outdoor, drive-thru display features a Christmas village, a nativity scene, more than 100 decorated trees and about 50,000 lights spread over 3 acres, according to the press release.

All are welcome to visit Monday through Thursday, 5-9 p.m., and Friday through Sunday, 5-10 p.m., beginning Dec, 4. There is no charge for admission, but canned goods for the Allentown Food Pantry are gratefully accepted. For more information, call 609-208-9991.
