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. 

The tours change every year and several times during the Christmas season as new displays go up. The most recent update was November 30, 2021. There will be a couple more displays added to the tour in the next few days.

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.

2021 Lawrence Christmas Light Displays
Garcia Family Christmas Display  Map A
Vantuyl Drive Christmas Display - Lawrence, Kansas
Although this home on Vantuyl Drive is the most impressive, there are 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 has had more changes in recent years with the addition of the large inflated snowman and a few lights across the street.

 Parkside Christmas Lights Map F
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. 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. Show runs through January 6, 2021.

 Wildwood Dr & Woodridge Dr  Map B
Wildwood Drive and Woodridge Crive Christmas lights This neighborhood display gets larger every year. 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 were replaced with 220 reels of 'soft white' LED lights. Up Thanksgiving 2021 until the first or second weekend in January.

  House With Lights on a Corner Map G
House on the Corner Holiday Lights - Lawrence, Kansas The Shaughnessy family calls this the House With Lights on a Corner, though the lights actually run to nearby yards in the adjacent Westdale Place culdesac. It looks like there are more houses participating in 2021. The lights are a little reminiscent of the Wildwood Drive and Woodridge Drive display, but without the geometric feel, with multiple colors and  smaller. The lights will remain up until sometime in January.

 Ranchero Drive Christmas Display  Map C
Ranchero Drive Christmas Display - Lawrence Kansas
I was blown away by this display the first time I saw the Ranchero Drive Christmas Display in 2008. This display changes from year to year more than most and it hasn't been up every year that we have checked. Many of the figures appear to be handmade. Just south of 13th Street and west of Monterey Way. It is a little smaller in 2020.

Please email if you can provide more details about this display.

 Massachusetts 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. The dates have not been set for 2021, but they will be lighted at some point.

 Santa's Lights  Map D
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 2020 is the third year Santa's Lights have been on Bramble Bend Court. The new location does not fit their program as well as the previous locations. In 2021 it will run Thanksgiving through New Year's Eve.

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

 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. 2021 dates not established.

 Westridge Court Holiday Lights   Map E
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.

 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.

McKenzie Family Display Map D
McKenzie Family Christmas Display - Eudora, Kansas
The McKenzie Family Christmas Display, 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. In our experience, it often is lighted later in the evening than the other two.

1274 County Road 1061, Eudora, Kansas 66025

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. These two displays and the McKenzie home are all related. They are actually 2 sisters and a brother. Merritt Musick's family, Marilyn Lindeen's family and Janice McKenzie's family. Amy of these displays would be worth going out of your way to see on its own. Some nights most of the lights are off by 9:30.

2213 North 1300 Road, Eudora, Kansas 66025

Grinch Christmas Display Map F
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 display is rearranged as new handmade wooden cutouts are added. 2021 is the fifth year that this display is on the the Eudora Christmas Light Display Tour. Up Thanksgiving night 2021.

1618 Cedar Street, Eudora, Kansas 66025

Ditto House Map c
Eudora, Kansa Christmas light displays
In the spirit of the Ditto House which was in Overland Park a few years ago, this home is between the two previous displays and the one which follows and points at both of them. This is the home of Eudora Fire Chief, Ken Keiter. This display was added to the Eudora Christmas Display Tour in 2019.
