Looking for some amazing holiday light displays in the Houston area? Well, you can drive around your neighborhood and check out what others have done, or you can hit some of the large displays. There are even some limo tours you can book if you want to see the lights in style. Here are some of the subdivisions and neighborhoods that have huge annual light displays:
• Prestonwood Forest
• Woodland Heights (their Lights in the Heights event takes place on December 8, but the light displays will be up until Christmas, at least)
• Timber Lakes
• Graystone Hills
• Pin Oak Village
• Fairwood Subdivision
A number of the homes in these areas may have entered the annual Houston Area Christmas Light Display Contest. In order to win, you’ve got to go big, so be on the lookout for some giant displays!
There are a number of other displays, of course. Check out the Winter Wonderland in The Woodlands. Produced by the Woodlands Convention & Visitors Bureau and presented by Donoho’s Jewellers, this event features a huge light display. You’ll find a giant Christmas tree, lighted toy soldiers, angels, snowmen, and much more. If you donate non-perishable food items at Donoho’s, you’ll get a $2 off coupon to the nearby Ice Rink.
Another great walk-through event is the Dickinson Festival of Lights at Paul Hopkins Park. Admission, parking, and shuttle service are all free, which is great for your holiday budget. There are thousands of lights on display here, plus there are a few activities, too. For a small fee, you can decorate cookies, eat some great food, or get a picture with Santa (which is free if you use your own camera).
Moody Gardens is hosting their Festival of Lights once again. There are more than a million lights used in these amazing displays. There’s also live entertainment, an outdoor skating rink, and a ice slide. Admission is $6.95 for the Festival of Lights trail, and fees vary for the other activities.
These are just some of the amazing light displays in the Houston area. Do you decorate your home? If not, maybe you should start this year!
Don’t forget to decorate indoors as well. We’ve got some great Christmas flowers in Houston, TX, that will help bring the holiday atmosphere into your home.
