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 2018 or a friend has told us the display is up for 2018.

** Addresses with double asterisks are unverified locations which mean they have previously had displays but have not been visited by us yet in 2018. 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!

“It is also very important that turning around in neighbors driveways is kept to a MINIMUM. We have signs, mention it in voice overs, and have it mentioned on our play lists and it still happens way too much. One neighbor has gone to the city about it, and I don’t want the display going away just yet, as the guys in Kaukauna is after this year……Thanks again!!”
