Rules

Two nights, Wednesday, Dec. 2nd and Tuesday, Dec. 8th, are Walk Nights and belong to walkers only. On Wednesday Dec. 2nd and Tuesday Dec. 8th, Van Ness Boulevard will be closed to vehicles from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tree Fresno will be providing bus rides from the north east section of Fig Garden Village in the Financial Center area for the two walk nights. For more information regarding the bus service, please contact Tree Fresno at 559.221.5556. All the other December days are open to vehicle traffic.

The lane tour of old-fashioned displays is free. Donations are appreciated along the lane to help pay the cost of installing the lights along county property, which takes three months of professional labor by a hard-working guy named Shawn Caglia. The non-profit lane project is supported by contributions.

What is it?

On the opening night of Christmas Tree Lane, which is located on Van Ness Blvd between Shields Ave and Shaw Ave in Fresno, California, millions of lights are turned on at 6:00 p.m. and remain lit until 10:00 p.m. Some 140 homes and 300 trees are decorated and the display spans nearly two miles. The free event is sponsored by the Fig Garden Homeowners Association.

Drivers access Christmas Tree Lane from Shields and drive north to Shaw.
