You might be tacky if most of the 'lights' in your yard are really just bug zappers.

What are some ways you guys direct traffic? At my display we usually have a good amount of traffic. So i have made two signs. One is an arrow pointing the direction of flow of traffic and a sign that says "drive up" so people know do go up the driveway. How do other people do it?

well, I can say that working as a paramedic/firefighter for over 12 years I can tell you very little traffic control ever works. You can suggest, but they will still do whatever they want.

My tip is the flyer/directions that you give. People follow the directions that you give. So if you direct them to go a certain way to the display, most will follow that path. Which means they will leave your display looking for a path out. Think about the flow of traffic on the neighboring streets. Don't expect people to make left turns onto a busy street.

I am going to try to hand out flyers, going to try to add QR code's to it. This year my display will be very smart phone friendly.
