Driving around to look at holiday lights may be one of the brightest things about the upcoming holiday season for many families.

Afterall, piling into the car or SUV, kids bundled in the back, mom and dad upfront, hot chocolate and snacks at the ready, is totally safe given this year's COVID-19 concerns.

But where to go to see the best and brightest lights? That's where the Post Bulletin can help.

We are compiling addresses of decorated houses in Rochester as well as the surrounding cities that are worth a look.

This is a community effort, though, and we need help. We need homeowners who decorate to send us their address so we can compile them into a map at www.postbulletin.com for easy navigation of the best and brightest holiday decorations. We'll also publish an organized list in the newspaper on Dec. 12.
