Where you can see Christmas light shows in east Idaho
Published at | Updated at
IDAHO FALLS — A popular Christmas tradition for many is looking at Christmas lights, and there are a plethora of light shows to see in eastern Idaho.
We’ve compiled a list of Christmas light displays for you and your family to check out. Before you go, here’s a reminder to be respectful of the neighbors. Please don’t ever block neighbors’ driveways, shine headlights into their windows, or be unnecessarily loud or disruptive. Being considerate can make sure light shows can be done in years to come, and everyone can have an enjoyable experience.
To see even more areas with lights, an interactive Google Map was created to show you some of the best spots.
Owens Family Lights, Idaho Falls
The Owens family at 1385 Lowell Drive in Idaho Falls has been hosting a Christmas light show for over a decade. Their 2020 music-incorporated show, “Christmas Every Day,” is displayed with 100% energy-efficient LED lights and more than 120,000 pixels. Tune into 88.5 FM to hear the music.
Winter’s Wonderland of Lights
The Winters have been doing a light show for over 15 years in the different houses they have lived in. Their show will run daily through New Year’s Day from 5 to 11 p.m., and the music can be heard on 88.5 FM.
Though they already planned to up their game this year, they knew that people would need a really special show in 2020. They doubled the amount of pixel they used from last year to 15,000. It’s at 1389 Sawtooth in Chubbuck. More information can be found on their Facebook Page.
To go along with the spirit of giving, a donation box will be set out in front of their house where 100% of the donations will go to the Idaho Food Bank.
The Robinson Family Light Show, Rexburg
New shows will happen every 15 minutes from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. The show includes six giant lights and smoke machines. Tune into 90.9 FM to hear the music. More information can be found on their Facebook page.
Christmas Lights at the Inn, Ririe
This outdoor adventure at the Aspen Grove Inn in Ririe is perfect for driving around and seeing all the characters set up around the lights, including the Peanuts Gang, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Frozen characters, Clark Grizzwald, cartoon animals, the nativity, Santa’s workshop, and more. You can also hear the hooting of owls out in the distance. All of it is shown for no charge.
The route is about a sixth of a mile, and they will keep it up as long as people keep coming. Lights stay on until 10:30 daily.
