There are plenty of great professionally made holiday light displays around St. Louis, but it takes a special level of determination (and Holiday Spirit) for John Q. Public to devote time and effort to a home-made light display.
When it comes to celebrated St. Louis neighborhood holiday light displays, this is the Granddaddy of them all! The tradition started over a decade ago with one neighbor going above and beyond the traditional Christmas light display and it ‘snowballed’ from there as more and more neighbors pitched in to make it the biggest group display in the area with hundreds of vehicles viewing the lights each year. Donations are accepted to benefit charities including the Salvation Army.
Address: 6500 Murdoch Ave, St Louis, MO 63109

Complimentary coffee, cocoa and candy canes may be provided on weekends.

Is it a Christmas music concert with lights or a light display with Christmas music? Whatever it is, we love it! Never Enough Lights is a fast-paced laser light show with 80,000 lights set to traditional, and not-so traditional artists…Twisted Sister Christmas music??? Donations are accepted for the Hope Ministries Food Pantry and Toys for Tots.
Location: 607 Calamar Ct, O’Fallon, MO 63368
Time: Sunday-Thursday from 5pm-10pm, and Friday and Saturday from 5pm-11pm.

We’re off to the Metro East for our last entry…401 Chadwyck Drive in Glen Carbon. The house is decked out with more than 125,000 lights. Visitors are encouraged to dim their headlights and tune their car radios to 90.5 FM to enjoy the light spectacular synchronized to holiday music. In addition to the light display, a collection box is available to collect new, unwrapped toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation.
