    Did you hear anything about Silver Park in Alliance (Stark county) hosting their drive-thru Christmas lights display again this year? They usually have it every year for a small price per vehicle, but I’m not sure of the details!

  2. says

    Please update Boardman Park-Mahoning County, part of light display is synchronized to music station 88.9fm

    Our Lights Display will start Dec. 7 and run thru Jan. 5. 6pm-10pm nightly. FREE!! This year we hope to have a Military Tribute 2 new songs to add to the mix. tune in to 88.9FM when in the Park during those dates.

    Thank you for doing this I did share your site on our Facebook Page, comes in handy!! :-)

    • says

      Karen,

      Thanks for letting us all know the additional details about the Boardman Park display. I’ve updated the list with the information.

      And thanks as well for sharing it on facebook, I hope many find it useful!

      Take Care,

      Danielle

  3. Beth Renn says

    Could you please add our Facebook page Renn’s Lights for Charity. We are located in Conneaut, Ohio. Display is free. Donations go to charity. This year is The Childrens Institute of Pittsburgh.

  4. edward schroedel says

  5. Noah Horner says

    Hey Danielle,
    My grandfather does these CRAZY Christmas lights and I was hoping you could add them to the list. He climbs these HUGE pine trees by ladder and decorates them by hand with lights. He also puts up figurines, decorates his garage, and puts a manger scene in the middle(reason for the season). So, if you would please put my grandfather’s display on the list, it would be amazing! Everybody on our street always comes down and looks at it at least once a year, and I’m hoping we can expand that. Ours is just you can walk or drive by, and knock on the front door and tell us if you like it. And, as my grandfather always says, it’s for the kids. The address is: 6540 Ridge Plaza Drive, North Ridgeville, OH 44039
    Thank You,
    Noah Horner

  6. Sarah says

    Don’t go to the house in Mentor on Forest Ave. It’s cancelled until further notice due to technical difficulties. Such a shame, my kids were looking forward to it.

  7. Jean says

    I’d like to thank the webmaster of this site (Danielle I think her name is) for her effort in putting together all this information and maintaining this website. It seems that fewer and fewer houses are putting out lights these past years and I appreciate knowing where to look.

  8. Don says

    My wife and I went out this past Friday, 12/13/13, and map out and saw:
    1. N Churchill Way‎ Strongsville
    2. Crown Point Pkwy Strongsville
    3. Mayberry Dr. Parma‎
    4. Gaynor Dr Brookpark
    5. Delora Ave Brooklyn
    in about 2 hours. They were all great.

  9. wendy p says

    I just wanted to let families know that the display in Parma on Mayberry needs to be taken off the list. As soon as we stopped the car in front of the house my daughter noticed people standing in the dark and then someone started to approach the car asking for money. Talk about creepy. We left before they got to the window so there was no confrontation thankfully.

  10. Robert Boyd says

    Hello, if you can add my home I’d appreciate it. It was added to the Canfield christmas light list

    5515 West Boulevard
    Boardman Ohio 44512
    Radio station 107.7

  11. Matthew Cristino says

    I just wanted to let everyone on here know that I am a beginner on Christmas light displays but I believe for a first time display I have done pretty well. The address is on Gaynor Dr in Brookpark, Oh. The display runs from 6-11 and some is synchronized to music. I am looking forward to making it bigger year after year. Happy holidays to you all!

    • says

      Matthew,

      Thanks for letting us know about your display. I just added it to the listing. If possible, can you give me the exact address? That will help others be able to find it easier.

      Thanks!

      Danielle

      • Matthew Cristino says

        Thank you for the add and my street is not very long and nobody will have a hard time picking out which house is mine lol. 6098 Gaynor Dr

  12. Jen says

    This looks like such a great list!!
    I’m at school in the area, so I thought it would be fun to read through and see if there are any light displays that I could see before going home.

    I noticed that you have Upper Sandusky’s lights on here! That’s GREAT! My family goes to see them every year. It is an absolutely gorgeous display! Unfortunately, it is not located in Erie County like Sandusky is. Upper Sandusky is in Wyandot County, which is actually in Northwest Ohio.

    Just wanted to give people a heads up in case they wanted to head out that way!!

    Great list, though!!!

  13. Deb house says

    The one place I go every year and went to school with owner, is: Eichle Tree Farm
    11844 Williams Rd
    West Salem, Ohio 44287-9204

    This place is between West Salem and Homerville.
    This light display started in the 60′s by Ray’s parents. The family has taken over and there is something new every year!
    The drive-thru and walk-thru is free but they do have a box for donations.
    Last year they had Santa!
    They sell Christmas trees at low cost, have a little store, and are wonderful people!
    The light display is from Thanksgiving to New Years from 5-10 pm.
    Go enjoy yourself!

    • says

      Deb,

      Thanks for letting us know! We had a couple others email about their display as well, it sounds beautiful. Added it to the list so others can find out about it and enjoy it too.

      Take Care,

      Danielle

  14. Ken says

    A really beautiful Christmas display is located in Belpre, Ohio. (Washington County) Many lights throughout the small town and excellent driving display in park along the Ohio river. Located west of Marietta, Ohio Donations only.

  15. says

    I highly encourage you to check out our display at Candlelight Winery (11325 Center Rd Garrettsville Oh). This is our 7th year in doing a show! Show runs Friday and Saturday nights – see website for hours. Plus Friday night is kids night – for a small fee kids can make and take a craft home!

  16. Regina says

    Historic downtown Willoughby has a tree lighting ceremony on the Thursday after Thanksgiving every year. It is free! The have carriage rides and Santa comes. Great time for kids of all ages. :)

  17. Jennifer Hicks says

    The Toledo Zoo has the best lights show I’ve ever enjoyed. Far exceeds the Columbus Zoo! Highly, highly recommend it!

  18. Jen says

    For more than 20 years, the residents of the Crown Point Parkway cul-de-sac in the Chandler Commons subdivision have gone all out with their festive decor for their annual holiday lighting display. Approximately 32,500 lights adorn just one of the homes, and the 30 moving decorations include trains and a merry-go-round. The street’s display opens Thanksgiving night, and runs through January 1. Santa Claus makes an appearance in one of the home’s garage on Friday and Saturday evenings.

    • says

      Jen,

      Thank you for leaving the comment. I’d been trying to find specific information about the display as many have emailed to let me know how great it is. Just added your comments to the listing.

      Thank You!

      Danielle

  19. Jenna says

    There is huge display in Sharon Township at 829 Fixler Road Wadsworth Ohio 44281. They are one house but they go all out. They started putting it together today and should have it up and running by Thanksgiving. :-)

  20. says

  21. Randy Wachtel says

    How about Spring Walk farms in Holmes County Ohio. They have lights that span the whole farm, and down the road, and they’ve been putting up those lights for over 30 years. On from Thanksgiving to New Years

    • says

      Thanks for letting us know about the farm. It must be a great display as there have been a handful of others who have emailed about it as well. Added it to the listing so others can enjoy it too.

      Take Care,

      Danielle

  22. Jen S. says

    Holmes County has two awesome locations that we hit every year…even with our adult children!
    The first is a LONG time displayer at Wachtel’s Spring Hill Farm. I’m unsure of the exact address but it is just North of Nashville, OH off of SR 514. The display goes through their entire farm- it’s amazing! This is an annual must see for everyone in this area.
    The second location has taken shape in the last 5 years just South of Nashville off SR 514. Their sign says Reiheld’s Four Point Farm. It also is on a farm and it lights up the entire area. This is a smaller display but very tastefully done. It’s growing each year and we have a ton of fun seeing the new pieces they’ve added everytime we go through.
    Enjoy beautiful Holmes County!

      • says

        This is our house! We’ll be doing it again this year too… hoping to have it all ready by next weekend if all goes as planned. 7363 Saratoga Hills Drive NE in Plain Township. Just off of Middlebranch Road in the Saratoga Hills development. We have 100+ lights featuring a 20ft. tree of lights with a 5ft. angel atop of it. Synchronized to music and broadcast over 103.7 FM so you can listen from the comfort of your car. We’re an official sponsor of the Marine’s Toys for Tots program for the last five years and we’ve help collect thousands of toys. Bring a new, unwrapped toy for any age/gender child and we’ll make sure it gets to them. We run S-Th 5:00pm-10:00pm and F,Sa 5:00pm-11:00pm weather permitting. Enjoy!

          Andrena,

          Thanks for leaving the comment letting us know more information about your display. It sounds fantastic. I’m hoping to get over to see it this year. Just updated the listing with all the details.

          Take Care,

          Danielle

  23. Beverly Wachtel says

    Wonder how to get our Christmas light display on you website, Wachtel’s Christmas Light Display

Is lighted Thanksgiving night until New Years Eve night from 5-11p.m. Donations are accepted. The light display is located in Holmes Co. Thanks You

  24. Lauren Worona says

    Hi! I’m very happy to come across your page!
    I wanted to post information on the light display our family has been doing for the last couple years at our home. I would be very grateful for the listing on this site under Trumbull County.

    Worona Family House Display. We have an 80 channel display synced to music. FREE! It can be heard on 88.1 FM or with the windows down in your car. Plays from 6:30-10:00pm everyday. Our address is 6735 Sodom-Hutchings Rd. Girard, OH 44420. On Saturdays (weather permitting) we may have a fire going with free hot chocolate and other goodies.

    Thank you!!

    • Char says

      I have seen Worona’s light display (last year) as I live on the same road (only several houses down from them) and I had to stop every time I drove past. The kids and I really enjoyed watching in our heated car. We can’t wait to see it again this year.

      There was however 1 downside to it though …. there were only certain spots where we could get good reception (not sure why).

      But we will still stop by and see it again this year for sure ….. and THANK YOU for the awesome display!

  25. Amanda Coon says

    We have a display in Macedonia, In Summit County. Over 90 channels synchronized to music, played on 107.1 FM. Show runs 6-10 Sun thru Thurs, and 6-11 Fri and Sat, from Thanksgiving thru around January 1st.
    969 Shepard Hills Blvd
    Macedonia, OH 44056

  26. Jon says

    4967 Forest Rd. Mentor has a light show set to music. 128 channels through a Light-O-Rama system that lights up two houses, a barn, three large light trees, and multiple other items. It changes every year. Starts the day after Thanksgiving with a lighting ceremony at 6 that includes free hot chocolate. There is a curbside Toys-4-Tots box and a Make-A-Wish donation tube on site. Regular schedual is 5-10 Sunday thru Thursday, 5-11 Friday and Saturday, and all day Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Ends New Years Day at 1 am.

  27. Sharon says

    For those in the Mentor/Willoughby area, there is a house that has a lights display synchronized to music — you tune your radio to 101.5 and it plays for 12 minutes every half-hour on the half-hour. I don’t know the specific address, but here’s what you do…. From Mentor Ave. (Rt. 20), go to Arrowhead Music (8571 Mentor Avenue, Mentor, OH) and turn onto Murray Ave. which is right across from Arrowhead (only can turn one way). Take Murray a short ways to a left onto Rosebud Dr. and then go another short ways and make a right onto Parker Dr.. Parker ends in a cul-de-sac, and as you get near, you will see a very lit-up house on the right with a little sign out front telling you to tune your radio to 101.5, etc. Pull across from the house for a straight-on view and enjoy! We’ve been there 3 times, and were the only car there each time — such a shame! Someone went to a LOT of work…

    • Find Time for Fun says

      I was hoping to have at least one per county and couldn’t find any in Geauga at first. Thanks for letting me know about this one. I added it to the list.

      Merry Christmas!

    • Find Time for Fun says

      Kathy,

      Thanks for letting me know, I’ve added it to the list. Looks like a great display.

      Merry Christmas,

  28. kathy Baughman says

    Not sure of the address but Carter’s Christmas magic on alexanderia lane in media is an amazing light show. The show is from 7-9

  29. Jennifer says

    In cuyahoga county the city of Bedford does a beautiful display. It is the entire square and there is music playing. The street has old lamp posts so it is a feel of traditional Christmas. Directly across the street is a coffe house perfect for hot chocolate afterward.
    In Garfield Hts there is a house onE 135th that has synchronized lights to music. You stay in the car and tune your car radio to the station they tell you.
    The city of independence does a beautiful display in the twin square. You can drive through or walk by. It is also huge and worth a look!!!!!

  30. Keith Boyts says

    806 Kenmore Ave se warren, OH 44484

    32 channels of lights synced to music on 99.9 fm. Show runs from 5:30 until 11:30 nightly

    • Find Time for Fun says

      Steve,

      Thanks for letting me know. I found a video of the new display. Very nice!

      Merry Christmas!

      Danielle

  31. Jennifer says

    We have a family tradition of doing a Christmas lights cruise a few days before Christmas. We have been to the Cherry Lane house in Green and it’s the highlight of our tour! My second favorite house is in Norton, also off of Greenwich Road, but the house in the video is not the same as the one I’m thinking of. Pretty sure the side street is Hartzler. Not set to music or anything but a really nice display with Santa’s sleigh suspended over the yard and pretty much every line of the house & driveway covered with lights. And a big Santa & Mrs. Claus waving from a display in the front window of the house.

    • Find Time for Fun says

      Jennifer,

      We’ve never been to the house in Green, but are planning to this year after all the recommendations we’ve been getting. If you find out the address of the house in Norton let me know and I’ll add it.

      Take Care,

      Danielle
