Clovis Christmas Tree Lane

The Clovis version of Christmas Tree Lane is located in the Wawona Estates neighborhood, located between Willow & Peach and Alluvial & Nees (about six blocks), is the new place to go for twinkling lights and lawn decor. You don't have the charm of the older houses that the Fig Garden, Fresno, Christmas Tree lane has, but you may drive or walk any night from 6-10pm.
