Best Holiday Lights Displays in Cedar Park
Our family, like many others, has a long standing tradition of driving around searching for the Best Holiday Lights Displays in Cedar Park each year. It’s one of the highlights of the season!
There are many homes in Cedar Park displaying Christmas lights, but there are a few that really stand out and draw a crowd each night. Parking can be tricky, especially on the cul-de-sac streets. Luckily we have the benefit of fairly mild winter weather here in Cedar Park. So, pack up the stroller or the wagon, bundle up and take a little walk. Generally parking one or two streets away will give you plenty of parking options. And walking is so much better than a drive by look because you can linger and admire each and every detail.
Lone Star Light Show
Look for the Lone Star Light Show on Lone Star Drive in Cedar Park. The Mendoza family, new residents to Cedar Park, are adding their spectacular music and light show to the list this year. Their display features a 16’ tall Mega tree, Singing Santa, dancing snowflakes, jumping arches, snowmen, rain deer, giant ornaments, blow ups and tons of wrapped trees help make this display interesting and exciting! The first song starts at 6:00 and run back to back with a 15 second pause in between. All lights are run and full synchronized to 13 songs, via special lighting software. New songs and display items are usually added throughout December, so you are sure to see or hear something new on each visit! Lights will run through December 31st.
As ex-CASA volunteers, the family has teamed up with CASA of Williamson County to help spread the word for their cause. ALL monetary donations left in the drop box go straight to CASA. Stop by and check out all their hard work.

Listen to Our Lights
The Storm family of Cedar Park have been synchronizing lights to music since 2010 in their Listen to our Lights show. In fact, John has become such an expert that he taught a set of classes called “Sequencing Fun and Easy” at the 2015 Christmas Expo. The downside is this display is a neighbors only show due to the large volume of traffic it would bring if they publicize the address. However, you can watch this year’s and years past shows on their YouTube Channel and you can also get some great How To Tips on his website.
