The Port St. Lucie Christmas House features nearly 60 fully decorated Christmas trees and over 35-thousand lights in a "Florida" winter wonderland home. This is a private residence that the owners deck out and then show it off for charity. Bring a new, unwrapped towy for the Boys and Girls Club of St. Lucie County for admission. Tonight is the last night to collect the toys, but you can still show up tomorrow (Sat) night and see the house by taking part in a raffle for Dogs and Cats Forever, a no-kill shelter.
