Christmas Card Lane is an entire subdivision of homes with extravagant Christmas decorations, tied together thematically by giant Christmas cards with greetings from each family. Over 200 hundred homes are decorated with Christmas lights and luminaries.
For 23 years, Christmas Card Lane has been a destination for tours and families searching for holiday lights. When cars pull into the Mission Ridge subdivision, they turn off there headlights and start creeping down the streets enjoying house after house decorated for Christmas. Sometimes they hear carolers, or Santa may step out to the car to hand out candy canes.
Take 151st Street east from I-35 to Ridgeview Road. Turn left on Ridgeview. Enter Christmas Card Lane on Frontier Lane or Butterfield Place. Before leaving Olathe, be sure to also visit the Penguin Playground at Mur-Len Road and Indian Creek Parkway.
