Best Jingle Bell Jingle Bam Viewing?

We’re planning to make Jingle Bell Jingle Bam on Novemeber 18, but we haven’t been to HS during the holiday season since the days of the Griswold Family lights show. Where is the best viewing location for JBJB, and will we need to stake out our spot early? I’m trying to work out the timing in my touring plan. Thanks!
