It might be too warm for caroling, but it's just right to tour holiday lights.
Our elves searched the town in search of creative home holiday light displays throughout Sarasota and Siesta Key. These homeowners will surely see an increase in their electric bill, but for now we'll just enjoy their labors of love.
1884 Morris St.
This house made our list last year as well with its snow family. This year if you pay close attention there is the addition of a few clumsy Minions attempting to decorate a Christmas tree.
1758 Cherokee Drive
Two life-size nutcrackers guard the entrance to this home. The lights on the palm trees make the home easy to spot as you stroll down Cherokee Drive.
99 Avenida Messina
If you're already in Siesta Key Village, turn on Avenida Messina and you can't miss this home. Inflatable decorations fill the lawn, including Santa Claus riding a personal watercraft, penguins and a Mr. Potato Head.
It makes a difference when an entire row of homes decides to deck their homes for the holidays. That's exactly what neighbors on Regatta Circle in Gulf Gate do every year. The combined displays include nativity scenes
2834 Browning St.
There can't possibly be anymore room for decorations on the lawn at this home. They've managed to squeeze in an assortment of families including penguins, bears, a nativity scene and a gingerbread family.
