2023 Christmas Lights & Displays of Spectacular Proportion
Preston Valley Light Show – featuring Horseshoe Bend Memorabilia
Big Cove, Huntsville (map)
The Higginbothem House era is over, but the family has generously passed on their tradition to Preston Valley! In Honor of the late Dr. John Higginbothem, you can drive-by or get out and walk around and enjoy the show. Lights are usually on between 5-10 PM, weather permitting, closed on Mondays except December 19.
The Boyer Family Dancing Christmas Tree Show
Moores Mill (map)
This show has over 25,000 lights and over a dozen animated Christmas trees that blink to the holiday soundtrack. It’s hosted by two talking Christmas Trees, Chris and Christine, who tell jokes and introduce the songs. The show will play nightly until 9pm or 10pm except on rainy nights when the show is dark.
Woodard Family Lights
This light show in Madison runs from roughly 5-10 PM each night and includes a special tribute & celebration for the Artemis 1 mission! See their Facebook Page for weather updates and even request your favorite song! Please be courteous and don’t block traffic or driveways.
EDITOR’S NOTE: We worked hard to put this map together using reader suggestions and locations we sought out ourselves. However, the vast majority of these locations are private residences and sometimes there are situations when they don’t have their lights turned on. Weather and technical difficulties can happen – we have no control over this. If you discover any inconsistencies, please let us know so we can correct them. We also want to know if we missed anything!
