Preparing To Power Up Christmas Tree Lane

Preparing To Power Up Christmas Tree Lane

Two neighborhoods known for their Christmas lights and displays are only a week away from making their lanes sparkle. Next Saturday December 1st they'll power up Christmas Tree Lane in Fresno and Cindy Lane in Clovis.

Shawn Caglia has been a part of Christmas Tree Lane for the past 27 years. Saturday he was making sure the lights in the trees and that criss–cross the lane were shining brightly.

Van Ness Boulevard has its own power lines to light up the street displays. Caglia says it stretches for four miles. "This is the longest Christmas Tree Lane in the world. It's been in Look Magazine, it's been on the Discovery Channel, it's been in Sunset Magazine."

Up the street Gene and Linda Adams were using a long pole to place ornaments in their tall trees. "You can kind of see how we figure this out. I lift it and she tells me where to put it."
