On The 4th Of July the neighborhood comes alive with fireworks in the street, sparklers for the kids and the sounds of “ooh’s and aah’s”. During October neighbors send each other “Boo buckets” for the kids and just before Halloween there’s a grand costume party. By Halloween night the sidewalks are crawling with ghosts and goblins as children of all ages enjoy the spooky decorations put out by many homeowners. At Christmas time the Bayhill carolers unite to stroll through the highly lit up neighborhood singing Christmas carols for all to enjoy. There’s even a secret Santa gift exchange!
