The best and brightest Christmas displays in Canby will be front and center throughout December.

The Friends of the Canby Public Library is offering the chance to tour these displays during the second annual Christmas Tour of Lights. Do it all in one night or spread it out over several days, then vote for your favorite displays by 6 p.m. Dec. 28.

"Christmas is a wonderful time in Canby, and this is one of the events that showcases the small-town magic making our community so special," Friends President Gayle Elizabeth said. "We are grateful to our sponsors and members, and to all the homeowners who work hard to make the season bright."
