Video: Fire 'Em Up—Boise's Holiday Lights


If you couldn't tell from the omnipresent Christmas music, the glow-in-the-dark houses suddenly sporting animatronic reindeer, or the evergreen branches sticking out of, or on top of, every other car, the holidays are nigh.

BW will take it's own, special take on the holidays in the Wednesday, Dec. 21, edition of the paper—complete with some things that will give the writers' parents questions about their mental stability. But to tide readers over until then, we hit the streets with our ever-present video camera to check out some hard-core holiday lights in Boise.

No one does it bigger than the crew at the Idaho Botanical Garden, which creates the Winter Garden aGlow with the help for 250,000 lights. Check out the full video below, and if you want to check it out in person, click here for a chance to win some tickets from BW.
