Christmas in Sun Valley
Ketchum, ID, USA
200,000 LightsSome 200,000 Christmas lights are used to decorate Sun Valley each holiday season. Another way to put that in perspective is that there are roughly 200 lights for each resident. A lot of effort goes into creating the twinkling postcard-perfect scene, and not just with the decorations but also the free Christmas Eve performance of the Nutcracker on Ice Show and the Torchlight Parade down Dollar Mountain, a tradition that is almost as old as Sun Valley itself. Sleigh rides and carolers in Victorian costumes will also help put the holiday spirit into even the biggest Scrooge.
