Christmas Light Shows in NEPA


View your local Christmas displays with family (via Access NEPA)

You better watch out, you better not cry. You better not pout, I’m telling you why. It is finally December!

Whether you adorn your tree in pearlescent white light bulbs for the snowy, white Christmas aesthetic or prefer the multi-colored string lights, we all enjoy partaking in the beautiful tradition of decorating. We appreciate those neighbors who dedicate hours to meticulously placing thousands of twinkling bulbs across the entire exterior of their homes. Inflatable snowmen, LED elves, and plastic Nativity scenes stand with poise on their lawns, awaiting the arrival of the jolly ol’ fella.

In the name of Christmas, some individuals create large scale experiences that all families in the area can readily enjoy. They immerse viewers in vivid masterpieces by using eye-catching colors, musical theatrical pieces, and contrast to the dark night sky that is similar to a Fourth of July celebration. Some even pump the delicious scent of freshly baked cookies into the air to make all your senses in the spirit. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

Now, Let’s take a trip through some of NEPA’s best Christmas lights displays:
