How We Make This List

This list of where to see lights is crowd-sourced from reader comments. We need your help!

  • We ask on Facebook for recommendations, if someone tells us there is a great display at X address, we will include it. We can’t drive around to every location to verify a light display, and what some people think is worth-the-drive display, others might not want to bother with, so please use our list with that in mind. We try to include details and pictures to help as well!
  • If you do find something we should add to our list email us at Want to share an update with us or add your home? Submit here.
  • Generally, lights start after Thanksgiving. 
  • We will be updating the list all month long. (Printable list coming early December).

Tips for looking for Christmas Lights

  • Bring your light viewing to the next level! Check out these 3D glasses here.
  • Pack a bag of non-perishable foods in your trunk to donate to collections at shows.
  • Wear your holiday jammies. Bring a blanket to get extra cozy.
  • Pack fun snacks. We like popcorn, hot chocolate with marshmallows, candy canes and cookies!
  • Print out a scavenger hunt and use clipboards with a book light or flashlight. 
  • Visit on weeknights to avoid long waits at music light shows.

These addresses for Christmas lights are verified listings, meaning either a Go Valley Kids team member has seen it in 2020, a friend has told us the display is up or we have confirmed with the homeowner.
