Local houses LIT for the holidays! Find really BRIGHT ones near you!
Some families like to decorate for the holidays…and some families like to really light it up with DECORATIONS! Here are some local private residences that really know how to brighten up the neighborhoods in December.
Be sure to check the websites (those that have them) for more details before heading out for your evening joy rides.
- The Daly Family Festival of Lights
- Bogdan Farm and Christmas Lights
- Talon’s Christmas Lights & Food Drive
- Norton Lights
- Hutchins Family Light Show

The above (not so average neighborhood light shows) all collect some type of donations – please consider giving if you can. Weather and family commitments may close displays at any given time. Enjoy all the bright lights and THANK you to all the local families (and their understanding neighbors) that shine these bright lights for all to see and enjoy during the holiday season!
