Bucks County is full of fun holiday lights displays to see. Whether you’re looking for an amazing drive-through light show or neighbors who go all-out to decorate their homes for the season, the area has so much to offer. There are giant Santas, the Twelve Days of Christmas, and even Baby Yoda. Take a look at some of our favorite Christmas lights in Bucks County to get you in the holiday spirit.
We do our best to verify the residential displays every year. Please let us know if you find that a house no longer has a light display.
Shady Brook Farm
One of the best drive-through holiday lights shows near Philadelphia is Shady Brook Farm. The 3 million lights include everything from Santa’s workshop to a Bucks County covered bridge. The dedicated radio station, 90.7FM, plays carols and holiday standards for visitors to hear as they drive through the display.
In addition to the holiday light show, which stretches for over a mile, there are lots of other seasonal activities. There are plenty of snacks and hot drinks for adults and kids, plus visits with Santa, fire pits, and more. The festivities always stretch into January if you want to keep the Christmas spirit into the new year (and miss the crowds!).
Banas Family Light Show
Bartlett Court in Yardley is home to one of the best displays around–the Banas Family Light Show. Pull into the cul de sac and set your radio to 93.5 FM. You’ll hear “Feliz Navidad,” “Frosty the Snowman,” and more as the synchronized lights change with the music. The lights are on nightly from 5-10pm.
The Moores’ Christmas Display
This yard packed with lights and figurines is one of the best displays we’ve seen. We actually gasped as we turned the corner and saw it ahead of us. From ice skating penguins to flying reindeer and Santa in his sleigh, there is lots to see here. Every inch of shrubbery and trees is also covered in lights, which makes it all shine even brighter.
Light Up 394
The generous family at Light Up 394 goes all out for the season. Their Candy Lane Zoo features dozens of inflatable animals and an aquarium scene plus light tunnels in a walk thru display.
The lights are just part of what they do, though–Santa makes appearances, and you may find goody bags to add to the magic. If you leave a letter for Santa with a return address in the mailbox, you’ll even get a reply! Check their Facebook page for the schedule.
The family collects donations for Alpha Bravo Canine, an organization that provides service dogs to disabled veterans. See the QR code sign in the yard to contribute.
Wellington Drive Holiday Lights
Few houses shine brighter than this home on Wellington Drive. Playful penguins, Disney characters, and snowmen dot the front yard, and the whole house is covered in lights.
Jones Family Christmas Display
It’s hard to know where to look first at the Jones Family Christmas Display in Hatboro. Presents, trains, illuminated snowmen, and lit up Christmas trees plus seasonal music make this one of the most elaborate displays. It’s no wonder that it’s an award winner.
Colonial Drive Lights
Seeing the lights on Colonial Drive is an annual tradition for many families around Langhorne. The lights come on every night at 5pm throughout the holiday season and last until 10pm.
This year brings a change to Colonial Drive Lights, which has moved to an innovative light projection rather the synchronized show they have been known for in the past (note that our photo is from a previous year). The music is available at 92.1FM, and it also plays at a low level right outside the house, so you can enjoy the songs even if you’re not in the car.
Each year, the owners select a charity for donations–this year is Make a Wish. See the Venmo code to make a contribution.
Christmas Stories in Doylestown
This house in Doylestown is incredible and a highlight of seeing Christmas lights in Bucks County. The whole yard is full of every Christmas story you can imagine.
From The Bible to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation to Die Hard, there are lights, statues, displays, and dioramas depicting ALL the Christmas tales. If you’re looking for Mickey and Minnie, the kid with his tongue stuck to a flagpole, or Buddy the Elf, this is your spot. Classics like ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas are included, too.
Inflatables on Farber
If you like inflatables, don’t miss this display. Dozens of characters from Baby Yoda to Mickey Mouse fill the front yard. You’ll see Frosty and Rudolph on a Ferris wheel, a North Pole shuttle, and The Grinch hanging out in the background. A little bit of music and light projections complete the show.
Santa’s Place on Limekiln
This sprawling front yard has a little bit of everything for Christmas lovers. A large Santa greets visitors beside lit trees, candy canes, snowmen, and even a scrolling message of Christmas cheer. There are plenty of inflatables and lights to enjoy. Be aware that cars move pretty quickly here, so you may want to put your hazard lights on to drive by slowly and appreciate the Christmas light display.
One of the most impressive holiday lights displays in Bucks County is Peddlers Village in Lahaska. Across the shopping center, the trees, gazebo, and buildings are lit along with special displays for the season. In total, 1 million lights decorate the property at Christmastime and light the way for people shopping, dining, and enjoying all the holiday events like the gingerbread display and visits with Santa.
Green Heather Lights Show
The Grinch, Frosty, Santa, and more beloved characters make an appearance at the Green Heather Lights projection show. The family-friendly show features computer-animated LED lights synchronized to music. One of the more ambitious residential Christmas lights shows, they have their own radio station—87.FM—that plays along with the lights as they change color and patterns.
This year, Tuesday nights feature Disney songs all night, and Thursdays are dedicated to Star Wars. The show starts at 5pm and repeats every 30 minutes until 9:30.
Walking in a Winter Wonderland
Every inch of this house in Perkasie seems to be covered in lights and Christmas characters. With musicians, carolers, and Nutcrackers positioned among thousands of lights, the homeowners have taken great pains to make the space entertaining and welcoming.
As you walk by the house, there are so many things to see. A swing is specially decorated for visitors who want to take photos. Then there are light sculptures, figurines, signs, and lots of Christmas cheer.
