Holiday Lights Brighten Up KC

Since Thanksgiving, more and more holiday lights have been popping up around town. If you’re looking for some inexpensive family fun this weekend, load the family in the car with some cocoa and check out a few displays. The Plaza Lights are a tradition for many families, and we also enjoy Christmas Card Lane in Olathe where nearly 200 homes are decorated with lights and giant holiday cards with greetings from each family. There are usually even a few homes with music coordinated to flashing lights.

And if lights set to music are what you’re after, visit Tim Dorr’s display on the Prairie Village Municipal Ground – you can park in the Shawnee Mission East parking lot and enjoy the display while listening to music on a dedicated station on your radio. Watch this video from the Prairie Village Post for a preview!

All of these displays are free. The Prairie Village display does offer a voluntary donation box. Proceeds benefit the Prairie Village Municipal Foundation and Heartland Habitat for Humanity.

These are just a few of our favorites. Here’s a list of more displays across the metro from!
