Lawrence Kansas Holiday Light displays
These lists include many of the Lawrence and Eudora 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. The tour changes every year and many times during the Christmas season as new displays go up. 

The Lawrence and Eudora Christmas Light Tours are updated for 2018.

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. Please email your suggestions for the tour.

2018 Lawrence Kansas Christmas Light Displays
 Howe Family Christmas Display  Map A
Howe Family Christmas light display
The Howe Family Christmas Animated Light Display includes several thousand flashing lights set to music. 2018 is the 9th year for the Christmas display which uses quite bit of RGB technology where each bulb has a computer chip in it that produces light instead of a bulb. A mega tree in the front yard has over 5,000 lights. The 2018 theme is I Heard Christmas Bells and is an entirely new show. Starts sometime in December. Last show will be Jan 4th. Drive some of the adjacent streets to see other nice homes in the neighborhood.

  Cattleman Court Nativity Display Map F
Cattleman Court Nativity Display - Lawrence, Kansas
 We ran across this wonderful, cartoonish, nearly lifesize, Cattleman Court Nativity Display while following the route of this year's tour. It is a little small for inclusion, but feels just right for the season and is right along your way.

Please email us if you can tell us more about this cool Christmas display.

 Garcia Family Christmas Display  Map B
Vantuyl Drive Christmas Display
Although this home on Vantuyl Drive is the most impressive, there were several nice nearby displays. Vincent Garcia's display includes recorded Christmas music playing through a speaker and flashing lights. The holiday display is turned on until about 10:30 on week nights and 11:30 on the weekends. This display remained very similar for several years, but showed more changes in 2015 with the loss of the large inflated snowman and addition of several lights.

 Westridge Court Holiday Lights   Map G
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 first pointing this display out. Since 2013, there are pairs of 3 foot candy canes in front of each home on the culdesac.

 Wildwood Dr & Woodridge Dr  Map C
This neighborhood display gets larger every year. In 2018 there are 40 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 (3 times). As you drive or walk, you are surrounded by the Christmas light display. The families of Chad Dodd, Andy Frank and Michael Engel make the Holiday magic come to light. All of the lights were lost in a fire in 2017, but they have been replaced with 220 reels of 'soft white' LED lights. Display will be lighted until January 5, 2019

 Massachusetts Street Holiday Trees Map H
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.

 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 was one of the coolest we have seen anywhere during the 2013 & 2014 seasons. 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.

 South Park Christmas Trees  Map I
South Park Christmas Tree - Lawrence, Kansas The South Park Christmas Tree is a huge tree that has been decorated with blue lights on the branches, icicles, flashing stars and hanging strings of lights which move with the wind. Get out of you ar and walk over to the tree to see all that is going on. There are also penguins, a snowman and an igloo made from lights near the base. South Park is just south of the downtown Massachusetts Street Christmas Trees. Parking is available on the north side of the park by the Court House.

 Santa's Lights  Map E
Santa's Lights - Lawrence, Kansas
The Fisher family has had a Christmas light program on this tour most years since 2011. This is the 3rd location for their show and the first year Santa's Lights have been on Branble Bend Court. The new location does not fit their program as well as the previous locations, in part, because the house is so close to the street and the program is largely blocked when cars stop on that side of the street. 

There are still thousands of LED lights synchronized to music on 96.7FM and the signature Santa projection in a window.

2018 Eudora Kansas Christmas Light Displays
 Musick Family Display Map A
Musick Family Christmas Display - Eudora, Kansas
The Musick Family Christmas Display is 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. This display fills the large front and back yard and would take many photos to show. These displays are turned off fairly early in the evening. Some nights, most of the lights are off at 9:30.

 Grinch Christmas Display Map C
Eudora, Kansa Christmas light displays
We ran across this wonderful Nightmare Before Christmas display on our way to revisit the Grinch Christmas. This cool small display sits in from of a gothic looking house that sets it off nicely. Click on the small photo above, to see a larger image with more of the house.

If you can tell us more about this great Christmas display, please email.

Lindeen Family Display Map A
Lindeen Family Christmas Display - Eudora, Kansas
The Lindeen Family Christmas Display is one of the largest we have seen. It and the adjacent Musick displays cover several acres around the two houses with many decorations to far away to be clearly seen. Either display would be worth going out of your way to see on its own. Some nights, most of the lights are off by 9:30.

Grinch Christmas Display Map D
Grinch Christmas Display -Eudora, Kansas
The Johnson family started their Grinch Christmas Display in 2013. It was the idea of Ryan Johnson, who likes Christmas less than his wife, Kelly, does. The displays is rearranged as new handmade wooden cutouts are added. 2018 is the second year that this display is on the the Eudora Christmas Light Display Tour.

County Road 1061 Display Map B
Eudora, Kansa Christmas light displays
This display on County Road 1061 (Church Street), across from Eudora High School had been mentioned on this tour in passing as worth seeing on the way to the Lindeen & Musick Family Displays for many years, but since 2016 the display has been bigger and it has its own listing. It is a sprawling light display, much like the other two, not quite as large, but still growing.
