Christmas Light Displays Nearby
Posted December 7, 2020

The 5th annual Rogers Farms Christmas Light Show located between Whitney and Hillsboro at 1554 FM309 Map runs at the top of each hour from 6pm - 10 pm nightly from Nov 29 - Jan 3. The free show is set to music which you can tune to on your car radio.

Hulen Park in Cleburne is the site of the free Whistlestop Christmas. Millions of  lights will be on display this year from November 23 through  New Year's Eve.
For best viewing, plan on a half-hour to walk through the park some evening. If you can't do that, a drive around the perimeter of the park is worthwhile also. Hulen Park is located at 1010 Hillsboro St,  south of the courthouse in Cleburne. Turn west off of S Main St onto Westhill and you can't miss the lights just a couple of short blocks from there.

Waco has a number of displays to drive past.  Prior years' highlights are listed below, but note that some of these may be different in 2020.

  • 20 Oak Creek Circle was featured on “The Great Christmas Light Fight” television show a few years ago. It has a circular driveway that you can drive through to see the lights up close.
  • 22012 Bush Dr features a hanging Christmas tree suspended in the air.
  • 205 Appaloosa Trail is another home with an impressive display.
  • Wooded Crest Drive and Deerwood Drive are both streets in which many, if not all, of the residents decorate for the holidays.
  • 2737 Proctor Ave can be seen driving by, but it’s even better to park and walk through this display.

See a Waco driving map that will take you to all of these. 

New this year, the Lights of West in West, Texas is a mile-long drive through exhibit with over 100 scenes including a 20 foot tall Santa.  The cost to drive through is $35 per vehicle with up to 8 people.
