Last week we featured the JP Lights Christmas show that has been a year in the making. There are many other Christmas displays in and around Oakland Park for you to enjoy. Living In Oakland Park has made a list for you of both public and private light shows for you to enjoy. The best part is you can enjoy them from a safe social distance!
More Home Displays for Seekers of Lights
NW 46th Street
If you stop by JP Christmas Lights, you might want to venture a few blocks northeast to the block of NW 46th Street just west of Powerline Road, where you’ll see and hear a different take on residential lights.
Whale Harbor Lane
And at 2418 Whale Harbor Lane, Fort Lauderdale, you’ll find 75,000 Lights, animation, Santa’s Village, and photo ops. Please park on Riverland Road and walk; walk-through is open from 6 to 10 pm. Donations accepted.
3056 NE 15 Terrace, Oakland Park
Group member James Hayden suggested on Facebook that people included the addresses with insane lighting for people to drive around and enjoy the lights. His house on NE 15 Terrace couldn’t be left out of this list, right?
NE 57th Street and NE 7th Avenue in Collier Estates
This suggestion was left by group member Dave Britton: “57th Street and 7th Avenue about 4 houses”.
