We love jumping into the car in our jammies and driving around the neighborhoods looking at local Christmas light displays. Here are several fun places you’ll find a nearby Christmas light show in Georgia …if you know of more, let us know! Most of these begin Thanksgiving evening. Double check times before heading out!
Christmas in Castille (Alpharetta) Weather permitting, the show runs from Dec 4th – Dec 27th between 6pm – 9pm on Thursday – Saturday. The neighborhood is gated so when the gates close for the night, the show ends. When you drive up, tune your radio to 89.9FM. Please check the Facebook page for inclement weather updates.
Christmas in the Grove (Decatur) The show begins on Thanksgiving night and runs through January 1 from 6:30 p.m.-10:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 6:30 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Friday – Sunday, weather permitted. Our show has evolved from simple animation in 2010, to a light show, choreographed to some of the greatest Christmas music ever! The sound from our show can be heard in our yard and is also broadcast on 87.9 FM so that you can listen from the comfort of your car.
Christmas on Amberwood (Lawrenceville) 20000 lights, 45 inflatables and much more. Santa and Mrs Claus will be out every Friday and Saturday night to take pictures and collect donations for daffys pet soup kitchen.

Disclosure: No one paid me to write this. No one asked me. As always, if I didn’t think it was killer, I wouldn’t write about. #keepingitreal
