After making it through the year that is 2020, we could all use an extra cup of holiday cheer.

Driving with your family and looking at Christmas light shows around the Twin Cities and MN is an uplifting, pandemic-safe activity! Plus, in many cases, it’s relatively inexpensive.

This Holiday Lights Display Guide started when I launched Give Me The Mike in 2017, and I love compiling the list every year. It keeps growing and growing! I hope you enjoy it as much as I like creating it.

I am still adding Christmas light shows to this Guide. However, to be included, homeowners or organizers must submit information. To add your display, click here.

Please share it with those you love, and most of all, happy holidays!

Make sure you have current information

Some popular light shows are not happening in 2020 due to COVID-19. Those include:

  • Canadian Pacific Holiday Train (they are hosting virtual events)
  • Kiwanis Holiday Lights, Mankato
  • Holidazzle, Minneapolis (they are hosting virtual events)
  • Larson’s Lights, New Hope

It should also be noted that the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum originally sold out for the season and has since switched to a drive-thru format. Tickets are now available for their experience, which runs through January 17.

For those who didn’t know, Holiday Lights in the Park at Lake Phalen in Saint Paul ended after the 2016 season.

All of the displays on this guide were confirmed by the homeowners/organizers. Be careful, as other online light guides are outdated!

    On Friday, Jan 15. No lights 🙁

    1. Sorry to hear that! It’s what the homeowner reported. January 15 was when they said their display would end

    1. Hi Hannah! We are so sorry, we were having technical difficulties on the 28th. Feel free to come by again anytime between now and New Years to enjoy our lights!

  2. You forgot the Holiday Lights on York Ave, Schultz Family Lights, 1526 York Ave, St Paul MN 55106. They are on Facebook. Usually the entire block, both sides. They collect tons of food for the food shelf. Lights usually run Thanksgiving through December. Also do Halloween lights.

    1. We’ll make sure we add them! Homeowners need to submit their display in order to be listed.
