Seventh annual Golf Cart Parade of Lights December 21

Valerie Malik

It won’t be long until Santa’s coming to SaddleBrooke—the time we decorate our homes, have parties, give gifts, and send gift cards. The day after Thanksgiving, the activity begins, and out come the decorations that have been stored away for many months. We start seeing beautiful light shows in the neighborhood.

We also look forward to the parade of lights showing off the creative talents of our neighbors as they decorate their carts. On Dec. 21, spectators will gather at the SaddleBrooke One clubhouse, driving range, and along the route to watch and wave as the carts go by. The check-in and registration for carts will begin at 5 p.m. at the SaddleBrooke One activity center, where the after-parade celebration will take place. The carts will line up and leave from the SaddleBrooke One driving range at dusk, going up Howland’s Highway and beyond.

Spectators can watch the parade from the clubhouse and driving range or from along the parade route (which will be published in early December after the best decorated homes are chosen).
