And, if you get weak in the knees from all the dazzle there's always chocolate.
• Boulder City couple Dale Ryan and Dyanah Musgrave were the big winners on ABC's national competition holiday special in 2016, "The Great Christmas Light Fight". The Nevada couple snagged the trophy, and $50,000 in prize money for their display which included a working ferris wheel, a ski lift, a train, and a carousel.
• Don your Santa outfit, reindeer or elf costume and head to the annual Reno Santa Pub Crawl with dozens of participating taverns joining in the fun to serve up holiday libations. Along with the seasonal hoopla, the annual Reno event also serves as a fundraiser for local neighborhood charities.
