Neighborhood Light Displays Around Atlanta

Updated: Dec 14, 2021

Pop the popcorn, grab the hot chocolate and put the kids in their jammies its time to drive around and see Christmas lights!

This list is from 2020 and will update as I confirm if they will do them this year!

I have a Scavenger Hunt you can print out at the end of this.

Here are some neighborhood places to drive through. Many have Facebook pages, so check them for up to date information and always do what you think is safe for your family.

Many will have places for you to donate for you to donate if you can.

Click on the links in blue for more info on each place

Our Top Pick!!

5020 Luke Drive, Cumming, GA 30041

This whole neighborhood goes all out each year.

December 19, 2021 at 6:00 PM this year is their special night where they will have luminaries, Santa, hot Cocoa and more! This night expect long, long, long lines

In prior years they have been known to see Santa, falling snow, hot cocoa, cider, reindeer, bag pipers, our famous live nativity scene populated by Ashebrooke kids and so, so much more.

From their website about visiting on other nights: "You may drive through Ashebrooke on other nights to enjoy the light displays. However, lights are put up and turned on at the discretion of our residents. We plan to have lights ready by our big event on December 19th. On weeknights, most lights are turned on after 7:30 PM. This allows our residents to get home before viewing traffic starts.

It truly is a can’t miss event.

It took us about 30-40 mins to go slow with no traffic, but plan on having traffic and taking a while as they predict 1-2 hours on their big night.
