As a kid I remember right after Christmas dinner at my grandma’s house in Jefferson, we would drive to Metairie so we could take a peek at Al Copeland’s house all done-up for Christmas. I feel like maybe over-the-top Christmas lights are a dying art form or something because I certainly don’t see them like I used to. I asked the Northshore Parent Facebook Page and got some suggestions. Then I got in my rockin’ mini van with the crew and went and check them out. So if you want to go see some Christmas lights with your kids, here’s the scoop:


This list is updated for 2017

Private Residences with Great Christmas Lights

Covington Christmas Lights

Tallow Creek

849 Capistrano, Tuscany West neighborhood.

Normandy Oaks

Windom Road. Covington. A great static display with really nice owners.

Madisonville Christmas Lights

Perriloux Road in Madisonville between Brewster and Hwy. 22. Lights set to music that you can tune your car radio to.

Mary Street

619 Silverthorne Lane

308 Colleen Court

228 Merion Circle

Mandeville Christmas Lights

67221 Thackery Street, Mandeville. Tall Timbers Subdivision. We did a short Facebook live video from it last year.

Woodlawn Lane, Mandeville. A huge static display at the corner of Woodlawn and Park Drive in Mandeville.

Slidell Christmas Lights

125 Chamale Cove. Slidell. This display is always a treat. 6:30-10:30 each evenings. Check their facebook page for the official announcement that the lights are on–it’s usually right after Thanksgiving. Read more about the Morris Family here.

538 Crossgates. We have a video of this display up on our Facebook page. 

Public Christmas Light Displays

Koop Drive. Mandeville. This is really more of a walk-through, but you can see some thing from your car. The drive-by part is first and then there’s a walk-through section in the back by the Kidz Konnection Playground. This display is a little scaled back this year because of construction on Kids Town.

Zemurray Park. 400 South Oak Street, Hammond. They usually have a train that runs Friday, Saturday, and Sundays in December but I haven’t been able to confirm this year’s details.

Cassidy Park. Bogalusa. Drive thru is from 6-7PM. Walk thru is 7-9PM. Adults $4, Children $1, Vehicles $8.

Nov. 23-16

Dec. 1st-3rd, 8th-10th, and 15th-25th. Open Christmas Eve and Christmas night.


Christmas Light Displays Worth the Drive

There are some really great displays about an hour away from the Northshore (depending on where you live)

Celebration in the Oaks. Traditional light display in New Orleans City Park. You can read a full post about it here.

Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival. A fun walk-through display located at the Harbor in Gulf Port. You can read a full post about it here.

Shadrack Christmas. Two miles of Drive-Thru Christmas lights at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales. We have a writer going out to visit soon so we can get a full report on this new cjristmas light display.
