This is billed as a sample of the best holiday light displays in the United States, but lists Niagra Falls, Ontario. Granted, there is Niagra Falls, NY, and this locale should be cited as such or left off the list.
You missed at least three hoiday lights events that would top most of these: Starry Nights at Shelby Farms (featuring times to ride in your car, or in a horse-drawn carriage, or ride your bike, jog or walk through acres decorated with thousands of LED lights in the largest municipal park in the USA, just outside of Memphis, TN), Zoo Lights, at the world-class Overton Park Zoo n Memphis, and, of course, Elvis Presley's Graceland. Remember these for next year.
Holiday Lights? Which Holiday are they celebrating? I mean we have many different ones in the USA. Note: the word Holiday comes from Holy Day.
