Nite of Lites 2010 Print E-mail
Dear Prestonwood Forest Residents!

Can you believe it’s that time again? Where has the year gone? Before we know it, Santa will be on his way! The buzz is in the air and some residents are already getting excited about participating in the tradition of Prestonwood Forest’s Nite of Lites celebration.

Nite of LitesFor new residents that don’t know, PWF has had a long running (35+ years) tradition of going all out when decorating the outside of our homes during the Christmas season. So much so, that we have been dubbed “The Christmas Lights Neighborhood”. PWF has been spotlighted in all local newspapers (major and minor), all local television stations, The Travel Channel and was spotlighted nationwide on Fox News!

This year's Nite of Lites officially begins on Saturday, December 11th and will end on January 1st. Judging on Saturday evening will begin around dusk. Have your lights and displays completed by the time the Judges start their rounds on Saturday evening or you won’t be eligible for any of the great prizes that we have received for this year’s event. See below for Lights On, Lights Off time table.

Lights On     Lights Off    
All Days 6:00pm   Monday thru Thursday 10:00pm  
      Friday thru Sunday 11:00pm  

We know that putting out lights and displays is a lot of hard work. We also know that once the creation is finished, you want to show it off. We welcome you to start turning your lights on before the official start of Nite of Lites but please follow the time table above. By following this schedule it will help lessen the traffic flow late at night (when all the mischief happens) and our extra security coverage doesn’t start until the official beginning of the Nite of Lites.

On that note, we encourage all residents to be observant during the holiday season. If you see someone suspicious, or something out of the ordinary, please call the Constable @ 281-376-3472 immediately. A patrol unit is usually in our area and can respond quite rapidly.

Winners will be notified on Sunday evening, December 12th. At that time, prizes will be awarded, yard signs will be erected and pictures of the winners and their displays will be taken for inclusion in the Prestonwood Press and the neighborhood’s web site (www.prestonwoodforestonline.com).

Categories being judged this year are:

Best House Best Lamp Post
Best Mailbox Best Door
Best Block Runner-up Block
*(to win Best Block, there must be at least 95% participation)
**(if your block has a new theme, please let us know)

Great prizes have been contributed again this year, including cash from the PWF HOA but you can’t win unless you get those lights hung and those displays put together!

Thank you to all of the residents that have participated for so many years. Remember that PWF has elderly and infirm residents that would love to participate in the Nite of Lites tradition but are unable to decorate, so please, help your neighbors.

Good luck to those that are vying for an award and a special THANK YOU to all the residents of non-Christian faiths that show their neighborly spirit and participate each year.

We wish you all a safe and joyous holiday season!
