I’ve heard about the Dyker Heights Christmas lights for a few years now, at least since we moved to Brooklyn and maybe before that. Somehow we never ended up visiting them. The holidays get so busy with office parties, shopping, Santa sightings and preparing to travel that it’s often hard to fit in everything that looks fun.

We will, however, be visiting Dyker Heights annually from here on out.

Last night, we went out for a casual dinner at La Taqueria in Park Slope followed by a little window shopping and a drive through the heart of Dyker Heights.

The neighborhood was lit up like the Disney World electrical light parade. It was AMAZING! The houses were fully dressed in lights. There were moving carousels, giant Santas, two-story-tall toy soldiers, and even a live Elmo.

This year, we were tired and cold, so we stayed in the car, making loops along with many other cars. Next year, we’ll plan to park and walk so we can see it all!
