Tacky Light Tours

I saw this idea on Pinterest and hope to do something similar with my kids this weekend.
It's based on The Polar Express where the kids take a train ride to the North Pole.  Well, we won't be traveling that far, but we will listen to Christmas music, drink some hot cocoa and enjoy a Christmas light display.

While trying to plan our route for the Christmas light displays, I came across this website:

Tacky Light with this description:

" A Tacky Light Tour is a trip made with family and friends from one home or business insanely decorated for Christmas to another usually made in a passenger car, but sometimes taken in limousines, vans and tour buses. Traditionally, displays with more than 10,000 Christmas lights qualify to be included among the very best Christmas displays found on the Tacky Light Tour."

Sounded like just what I was looking for.  So I clicked on our state and found a couple of homes near us.  One was just a few miles away and had been putting on a display set to music for years.  How did we not know about this sooner?  This weekend we'll finally go see it.

Does anyone else drive around touring Christmas light displays?
Anyone else heard of Tacky Light Tours?  Or does your house qualify to be on the list?

Thanks for stopping by,
