Virginia Has Its Very Own Candy Cane Lane And It’s Positively Spectacular
Here in Virginia, we’re no strangers to Christmas lights. For proof of this, look no further than the Million Christmas Lights Display in Newport News. Few people realize that there are some neighborhood light displays that are equally enchanting. One such case is the Christmas Lights Display of Stones Throw Drive in Reston. With the nickname Candy Cane Lane, it’s no mystery why visiting this neighborhood has become a beloved holiday tradition for families near and far. And the best news? The family behind this project lovingly donates proceeds from the display to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
Here’s a peek at what’s in store and how you can contribute:
