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!

Addresses without an asterisk and bold are verified listings, meaning either a Go Valley Kids team member has seen it in 2019 or a friend has told us the display is up for 2019.

** Addresses with double asterisks are unverified locations which mean they have previously had displays but have not been visited by us yet in 2019. If you have seen one of these sites, please let us know in the comments so we can keep this post updated. Thank you!

If you do find something we should add to our list, leave us a comment below or email us at govalleykids@gmail.com.

We will be updating the list all month long. (Printable list coming early December). Happy light hunting!

Bring your light viewing to the next level! Check out these 3D glasses here.

“Hey all…..just a heads up. Although this will upset my visitors that have made us one of their holiday traditions for 12 years now, this will be my last year doing this. We will still decorate, just not the over the top attention grabbing show we have been doing. The ONLY reason is with my time commitment to Annika’s softball, it has become very difficult to put the time in to do this the way it should be done. Last year I helped coach both her little league softball team, as well as her Rockers tournament team. Even this fall and winter, I’m tied up 2 hours on Saturdays for off season training, as well as a couple hours on Sundays for pitching. Rockers practice will also be starting again the first weekend in Dec. I appreciate the tons of support from you all that visited over these years!! Thank you!! Most of the equipment will also be up for sale in the spring. – Lenny”
