Christmas decorations are my thing. I’m not saying I’m “good at decorating,” but I sure can spot a great display, a pretty tree and something that makes people smile. If you know my online history, I was internet famous for a quick minute when I was an outdoor Christmas decor consultant for a popular talk show, a few magazines, some newspapers, national news stories and some radio shows. It was fun and it’s carried over into other areas of my life and career.

Some of the displays listed are just simple extravagance, with no bells and whistles. Some have music, some have animation and some are just still with thousands of lights. At times you may come upon a house and say, “That’s all?” Some of my friends do that. I do not. I can almost always see why someone recommended stopping there. Each family has invested time and money to entertain you and to please your eyes. So, please keep sending those tips and keep all of these things in mind as you travel the roads to take it all in!

  1. Hi Katy,

    I was wondering if you were planning on having a 2018 Indianapolis Christmas Lights list and if so, when would it come out.


    Todd Chapman

  2. I have a very nice display of lights and would love to be added to the list. It’s quite the display. This is my 2nd year decorating sense I bought my house in belleville. The address is 6169 S County Road 121 E Clayton Indiana 46118. Its actually Bellvie Indiana right on US 40 going west 4 miles outside Plainfield turn left at Martin’s auto Garage and its halfway down the street on left. Thank You

  3. Hello

    I drove by a house yesterday in Break-O-Day addition in New Whiteland that was very cute and well decorated. I use this list every year I want to take my daughter out to look at lights and think this house should be on the list. It is located on 556 Sunny Lane and is in New Whiteland Break-O-Day addition and is house worth looking at.

  4. Hello Katy

    My name is Ashley and every year I put out Christmas lights for my mom at her house in New Whiteland. She has an in home day care and the kids love it but I mostly do it for my mom because I know she loves it. I would like to have her house added to the list of houses to see this year if possible. She lives at 556 Sunny Lane, New Whiteland in the Break-O-Day addition. It would mean a lot if her house was on this list of houses for people to drive by and see all the work that went into putting everything together.

    Thank you in advance

  5. I found another very light set up on the Southside. No music or anything, just a lot of pretty lights. Almost looks like a gingerbread house.

    7055 Sandlewood Drive, Indianapolis

  6. Melanie & Sergio Negrin

    We welcome you to come by our home on Lexington Court in Zionsville. Display includes lots of lights and figures, plus hand crafted items and a mail box to leave your letters to Santa. This year we have several sections – Santa’s village, Santa’s zoo, Snowman village, and Nativity. All 4 sides of the house are decorated. Come say “hi.”

  7. Can’t wait to check the south side locations out! I highly recommend checking out the amazing light display in Cloverdale, IN. It’s free to the public, Santa will be there, hot cocoa, cookies and more!!

      1. Yes they have a Facebook page. Their business is called RTM/Retired Military Unique Country Gifts and Garden Shop. The owners are Mike and Vicki Price they are so kind and have created great opportunities for family memories!

  8. Hello, our house is on your list and I would be more than happy to send a picture and/or video if is able to be linked to our address!

  9. Katy Mann I was wondering if I could get my house listed on the list. It is called Lights on Oyster Key I can send a video of the display lights and music and wooden cut outs.

      1. Thank you for letting me add my house! I have an entire yard full of Christmas this is my 8th year and I add things every year. This is my first year with lights to music. I sent you an email with address and sample video. Show is about 25min and I will add a few more songs closer to Christmas.

  10. Matt Quasebarth


    Thank you for putting this list together every year. Its become a christmas tradition for us. We appreciate all they work that goes into keeping this up and going.

    Best Wishes

  11. Why have you built your web page in a way that does not allow for us to copy and plot on a map the locations of these listing?

    1. Hi Rick, we experience a very large amount of thievery of our content so this is a safety net that we had to implement to cut back on small fraction of that. Instead, we worked hard to build you a map so you can navigate.
