Christmas lights light up lake communities

Christmas time in lake communities takes on an added dimension.  In addtion to the he annual ritual of displaying holiday lights in the front yard,  waterfront lots can decorate the backyards which can be seen from quite a distance.   Some lake communities even schedule a boat parade to show off decorated boats. Some communities such as Val Vista Lakes and The Islands in Gilbert make the boat parade an annual event.

Holiday Christmas Decorations on waterfont homes

What could be more unique than to cruise through a man-made lake in Phoenix on a pontoon boat that is lit up like a Christmas tree?  Obviously, this form of entertainment can only take place on Phoenix area lake communities that allow boats.  And you need to have a good size battery on board for all those lights.
