Not many holidays stir the memories of lights extravaganza and sparkly sights quite like Christmas. A unique time to appreciate the extension cords, tangled lights, inflatables, animated figurines and some of the most creative artistic minds. We’ve collected some of the local “Must See” Holiday Lights and Sights in North Delaware and beyond.
Faucher Family Christmas House
1054 Red Lion Road, New Castle
The Faucher Family’s house has been lighting up the New Castle/Bear neighborhood for 30+ years. The lights on Santa Clause Lane are spectacular – so much so the traffic slows for miles as folks stop by to get a glimpse of this holiday marvel. Nearly every inch of The Faucher house is decorated – just imagine what 1,000,000 lights would look like. Try to imagine getting that electric bill! Many Thanks Faucher Family! Donations are appreciated and accepted!
The story of the Faucher house made it to Unplggd, Gizmodo, Philly’s Fox TV affiliate, and even across the pond to Britain’s Daily Mail. Shout out to North Delaware!
Smith Family Christmas
Top of the Hill 1900 PRIOR ROAD | Just off Silverside North Wilmington
A festive holiday light-palooza with every possible inflatable, animated figurine and lawn decoration you could imagine – Includes a walking trail and Jolly ol’ Saint Nick is on site for photos and wish list taking throughout the season. One of the most interactive displays around. Thank you Smith Family! Donations are welcome.
Victory Fellowship Church
100 Wilton Blvd. Off Route 40 | New Castle
Ronald McDonald House of Delaware
1901 Rockland Road, Wilmington
With help lighting from the Faucher Family(above) Donations are welcome.
A Longwood Christmas
Through January 10
The spirit of the holiday season overflows during A Longwood Christmas with the fountain-inspired display. Blue and white twinkling lights, whirling fountain features, thousands of seasonal plants, and a bounty of trees with icicles and fountain-inspired glass ornaments fill the Conservatory.
Outside, a magical world awaits. From the Italian Water Garden illuminated with a 20-foot tree form, to a maple tree with its roots aglow near the Meadow Boardwalk, to the colorful fountains of the Open Air Theatre, there is holiday magic everywhere!
