Lights on the Lake.....

Real Estate Agent with Century-21 Homestar

Well last night we went to the Ashtabula Mall to see Santa and tell him what I want Matt wants for Christmas ... Lego's and Drums.....had something to eat and drove down to Lake Shore Park for the 4th annual Lights On The Lake.

Now if you have never been to this event or even heard of it here is the website check it out Lights on the Lake The site has maps, photos, story's, and a little about the people who put this on every year at Lake Shore Park in Ashtabula Ohio.

I didn't have any idea we were going to go to it last night so I didn't have my camera ....but I had my phone so I shot a few pics with it.....they are not the greatest but you get the idea......You have to see this in person to really get the full effect and what went into putting this together they did a great job.....

admission to Ashtabula County's Lights on the Lake is only $5.00 per vehicle at the gate.

About them.....

Good pics for a cell phone. Lights on/near a lake always look better, I think. Especailly if you can get reflections.

Almost 50 years ago, my parents would bundle my little sister and me in our van with hot chocolate in a thermos and go to neighborhoods and see the lights and displays on houses.  Our local paper in Charlottesville prints a map of the best displays and it is still a WONDERFUL family tradition * mall hopping is good too!!!

Really pretty.  Did Matt get his drums and legos?  Is it really loud at your house?  BTW- love your new background photo of the buglettes.
