Residents throughout Issaquah and the surrounding area — from South Cove to Squak Mountain, downtown Issaquah to Klahanie — strung up holiday lights and assembled lavish displays on rooftops and front lawns in the days after Thanksgiving.

South Cove, the narrow strip wedged between Interstate 90 and Lake Sammamish, is prime territory for holiday light hunting.

Steve Sanelli has transformed 4724 192nd Place S.E. in Sammamish Beach Club into a winter wonderland of lights, Christmas figures and oversized candy canes.

Andrew and Leola Salmeri decked 18811 S.E. 44th Way in glowing lights and fashioned the garage doors to resemble wrapped gifts. The decorations do not end at the house — even the ’69 Camaro in the driveway features holiday bling.

Homeowners in the cul de sac on 190th Avenue Southeast off of Southeast 44th Way transformed the suburban street into Nutcracker Lane. Twinkling candy canes form a fence around the entire block, and a treasure trove of decorations gleam from the houses.
