First comes Thanksgiving, then comes Christmas Wreath Lane and the rest of Billings' holiday cheer.
What began in 1961, Christmas Wreath Lane started a holiday tradition where entire neighborhoods decorate their streets as they would their homes with magical displays of lights, reindeer, Santas and the like.
Candy Cane Lane, Misfit Lane, Christmas Tree Trail and Whoville add to an even longer list, requiring Billings residents to pick up a map and prepare for a long illuminated drive.
Step back in time and rediscover the tradition that has kept the wintry night scene alive in Billings during the holidays.
