Slow down from the hectic pace of preparing for the holidays and discover the wonder of the holiday season! For many, this means a drive to look at holiday light displays with the family. Delight in the twinkling lights, lit displays and the sounds of the season.
Several homes (and a park) in the area have transformed for the season. Here's a list:
Nightly, November 23 – January 1
103 Elaisen Avenue, Waverly
Since 2001, the Wiechmann family home has been decorated for the holidays. Today, it’s bigger and brighter! In addition to their light display, five songs are a part of their display.
Lights shine Sunday – Thursday, 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm and Friday and Saturday, 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm.
Sanders Holiday Light Display
November 23 – December 25
2449 63rd Street, Vinton
In 2017, the Sanders family continues their annual tradition of decorating their farm with thousands of colorful lights! Lights shine from dusk until 9:00 pm weekdays and dusk until 10:00 pm weekends.
To get to Sanders' farm, take Highway 218 south from Vinton (or north from the Shellsburg corner) to 63rd Street. The Sanders farm is about one mile to the east.
Kersten Holiday Light Display

Prospect Light Show
November 24 – December 31
1056 Prospect Boulevard, Waterloo (just south of Ridgeway Avenue)
The Prospect Light show for 2017 is bigger than ever. A 20-foot tree is up, the talking faces have been moved to a new location and Flurry the snowman has been added! The 30 minute light display is synchronized to music so be sure to tune to 103.9 on your car radio. Please be courteous of others when you visit. Please do not block driveways and dim your lights.
Cedar View Holiday Lights
December 2 - December 24
400 Charles City Road, Nashua
Christmas in Nashua begins Saturday, December 2, with their community's Christmas tree lighting ceremony at 5:00 pm at Cedar View Park. This also kicks off the second year of Cedar View Holiday Lights, a community supported display of lights in the park. Visit the display Saturdays and Sundays in December between 5:00 pm and 8:00 pm.
As this is a fundraiser for Nashua Parks, there is admission of $5/vehicle to drive through the display.
