Christmas Lights and Cannoli Tour: Brooklyn's Finest Lights Display

Christmas Lights and Cannoli tourI 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 asChristmas 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
