Holiday Lights Lake Charles

We don't expect snow here in Louisiana for the holidays, but that won't dampen our festive spirit one bit! In fact, you might notice that folks in Louisiana take their holiday lights and decorations to the next level. 

We have some of the best holiday light shows around Lake Charles and the surrounding areas, and our real estate agents are ready to celebrate. If you're looking for a display of holiday lights, you have a lot of great options in Southwest Louisiana. 

  • Lake Charles Civic Center - 900 N Lakeshore Dr, Lake Charles, LA 70601
    Every year, the Lake Charles Civic Center hosts one of the most spectacular light shows in Louisiana. Located a stone's throw from many Lake Charles homes for sale, the Civic Center is nestled on 64 acres overlooking the lake and hosts the annual Light up the Lake Christmas Celebration. This year's event kicks off at 6:30 pm on December 4th, with a street parade through Downtown Lake Charles followed by a lighting ceremony on the Civic Center front lawn. After that, there's a boat parade and spectacular fireworks show over the lake.

  • Cruze's Christmas Light Show - 2193 W Armand St, Moss Bluff, LA 70611
    The annual display of lights at Cruze's Swings & Things in Moss Bluff, LA has become a beloved tradition in the local community. The folks at Cruze's string up around 15,000 lights every year, purely for the enjoyment of anyone who passes by. The light show usually starts around dusk every day and is accompanied by Christmas music played by 88.1 FM. You definitely need to swing by and check out Cruze's Christmas Light Show this year!

  • Prien Lake Park - 3700 W Prien Lake Rd, Lake Charles, LA 70605
    If you're driving around the Lake Charles area looking at all the amazing light displays, be sure to include Prien Lake Park on your route. This beautiful area on the eastern shore of Prien Lake will be decked out in holiday lights this season, just as it has in years past. The decorations typically last from the end of November through New Year's and include everything from Santa and his elves to a nativity scene and towering illuminated Christmas tree. 

  • Christmas on the Hill - 2151 Lynn Trahan Rd, Sulphur, LA 70663
    A family tradition in the community of Sulphur since 2006, the Christmas on the Hill light display just gets better every year. It's an incredible, ever-evolving display of string lights, giant candy canes, illuminated arches, video, and animation. The entire display is set to music, which you can listen to as you watch by tuning your car radio to 100.1 FM. The entire display takes weeks to create and can be seen on any night in December. 

  • Shell Beach Drive Christmas Lights - Shell Beach Dr, Lake Charles, LA 70601
    The lovely historic homes along Shell Beach Drive in Lake Charles are known for creating some of the most festive, eye-catching holiday light displays in town.
