3 Drive-Thru Holiday Light Displays in California

Christmas Tree Lane

Now through Dec. 25, catch Fresno’s seasonal tribute to the holidays known as Christmas Tree Lane. Drive through a 2-mile path to witness the dazzling light displays of 140 residential homes located between Shields Avenue and Shaw Avenue. This event is free, thanks to sponsorship from the Fig Garden Homeowners Association, but donations are encouraged.



Holiday Light Up

Each year, the Upper Hasting Ranch neighborhood in Pasadena puts on a spectacular light show that you can view from the comfort of your car. Per the community’s website, the best time to see the exhibit is from 7-9 p.m. Plan your visit to coincide with one of the concerts, caroling events, or Santa Claus encounters; check out the schedule on the group’s Facebook page.


Candy Cane Lane

Another great spot to view twinkling light displays is the El Segundo neighborhood. Dubbed Candy Cane Lane, this drive-by exhibit started back in 1949 and consists of unique illuminated scenes that span two blocks of houses. Set your GPS to 1200 E. Acacia St. and aim to drive by this scenic stretch from 7-9 p.m. Due to the popularity of this event, it’s best to time your arrival on the earlier side to avoid getting caught in slow traffic.
