Lawrence Kansas Holiday Light displays
This list includes many of the Lawrence Kansas Christmas light displays worth going out of your way to see. Click on the photos for larger images or links to pages devoted to the individual displays.  All displays on the Lawrence Tour have been verified for 2013.

Selection for this page is subjective and I may have decided to leave off holiday displays that someone else would have included. Or maybe I haven't see them yet. Although I carefully researched where to find some of these, I stumbled across a several of these holiday light displays on the way to photograph others.

Lawrence Kansas Christmas Light Displays
 Massachusetts Street Holiday Trees  Map A
Massachusetts Street Christmas Lights Every tree on Massachusetts Street (the main street in Lawrence) between 6th Street and 11th Street is covered with holiday lights. There are over 200 lighted trees in downtown Lawrence. Massachusetts is a nice place to begin your Christmas light tour, perhaps starting with supper at one of the many great locally owned restaurants.

 Stonecreek Drive Christmas  Map F
Fisher family Stonecreek Drive Christmas - Lawrence, Kansas
Stonecreek Drive Christmas was new to this list in 2011. The Fisher family's animated display is very attractive and several of the neighbors have lights along their curb. Take the time to drive up and down the neighborhood, it has many displays that are nearly as large as others on this tour. In 2013 the program is broadcast on 96.7 FM and a virtual Santa waves from the window and can be heard wishing you a "Merry Christmas!" The show runs from 5-10 Monday - Thursday and 5-11 on Friday - Sunday.

 Boyd Family Christmas Display  Map B
Boyd Family Christmas Light display
This somewhat isolated Boyd Family Christmas Light Display is worth going out of your way to visit. I like the timeless "Peace on Earth" theme and the large Santa in a sleigh. There are a number of nice inflatables. In 2013 there are two santas, and many small white spiral trees. The photo above is from a previous year. The "Peace on Earth" is now replaced with lighted wreaths.

 Wildwood Dr & Woodridge DR  Map G
This neighborhood display gets larger every year. In 2013 there are 21 homes near the intersection of Wildwood Drive and Woodridge Drive which have combined to run white Christmas lights in geometric patterns running from house to house and even over the street. As you drive or walk, you are surrounded by the Christmas light display. Two residents (Chad Dodd and Chris Eagle) provide the lights for all of the homes. Holiday music plays on 98.5 FM.

 Westridge Court Holiday Lights   Map C
Westridge Court Holiday Lights - Lawrence, Kansas
Westridge Court Holiday Lights is a half block long culdesac that has a half dozen nice Christmas light displays. The home shown in the photograph above is at  3405, but there are a couple of others that could have just as easily been selected to represent this attractive collection. Thank you to Caleb Schletzbaum for point this out. New in 2013, there are pairs of 3 foot candy canes in front of each home.

 Garcia Family Christmas Display  Map H
Vantuyl Drive Christmas Display
Although this home on Vantuyl Drive was the most impressive, there were several nice nearby displays. Vincent Garcia's display includes recorded Christmas music and flashing lights. The holiday display is turned on until about 10:30 on weeknights and 11:30 on the weekends. This photo is from a previous year because a dumpster was in the way when we took the 2013 photos, but the display is still similar in scope.

 Parkside Christmas Light Show   Map D
Parkside Christmas Light Show - Lawrence, Kansas
Mary Ann and Gary Martin's Parkside Christmas is the best known animated Christmas light display in Lawrence and one of the coolest we have seen anywhere during the 2013 season. If you approach from the north, there may be a long line of vehicles waiting for their turn to watch the sound and light show. If you approach from the south, there is usually no line. Tune your radio to 96.9FM to listen to the music which is coordinated to the flashing lights.

 Howe Family Christmas Display  Map I
Howe Family Christmas light display
The Howe Family Christmas Animated Light Display includes several thousand flashing lights set to music on 98.5 FM. The theme for 2013 is "Deck the Halls," more of the RGB technology where each bulb has a computer chip in it that produces light instead of a bulb.

Be sure to drive some of the adjacent streets to see some of the other nice homes in Lee Howe's neighborhood.

 Ranchero Drive Christmas Display  Map E
Ranchero Drive Christmas Display - Lawrence, Kansas
I was blown away by this display the first time I saw it in 2008. This display changes more than most, from year to year. Cool features for 2013 include a large fire breathing dragon and separate areas devoted to subjects like Disneyland and Farm Land. Just south of 13th Street and west of Monterey Way. 

Please email if you can provide more details about this Ranchero Drive Christmas Display.

Lindeen & Musick Family Displays
Eudora, Kansa Christmas light displays
These displays are 5 miles east of Lawrence, just east of Church Street in Eudora. The adjacent Lindeen and Musick families' homes have large Christmas displays including a small sound and light program with the music being played through speakers. You will also see two nicely decorated homes on Church Street near the turn off to to 1300 Road. Warning - these displays are turned off fairly early in the evening. Some nights, most of the lights are off at 9:30 PM.
