Annual IFC Holiday Lights Tour Brings Cheer To State College

State College was festively lit up Wednesday night as Penn State’s Greek community put on its annual holiday lights tour throughout frat land. More than 30 different fraternity houses prepared for the opportunity to show they’re the most spirited this holiday season.

As the community gathered, Sigma Pi welcomed families inside for cookies and hot chocolate before boarding a bus to take them on a 20-minute tour of the extravagant homes that included quick tidbits of fun information led by the brothers of Sigma Pi.

I decided to get in the holiday spirit and joined the tour of lights myself and brought my camera along to share as many of these holiday spectacles as I could. Here are some highlights of the tour.
