Christmas Lights and Cannoli Tour: Brooklyn's Finest Lights Display
Christmas Lights and Cannoli tour
I wanted to share one of my favorite holiday happenings around New York -- this one's actually in Brooklyn. You have to check out Tony Muia's Christmas Lights and Cannoli tour, a 3 1/2 hour experience that takes
you to Dyker Heights, the Italian-American section of Brooklyn, affectionately known as
Christmas Lights and Cannoli Tour
“Dyker Lights” every December. Here you’ll see over-the-top
Christmas decorations that even a department store holiday-window “dresser” couldn’t imagine. Think
15-foot-tall animated Santa’s, animatronic figures, life-sized Nativity Scenes
and millions of lights. And the cannoli part? You can’t go to Brooklyn without
a stop at an authentic neighborhood pastry shop for dessert and hot chocolate. You’ll even be entertained
on the bus with a multimedia presentation of vintage Christmas variety specials
with Andy Williams, Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby and more.Three or four busses leave nightly through
December 31 (excluding December 24 and 25) from Union Square.For more information, www.asliceofbrooklyn.com
