Synchronized Christmas Light Shows | Light Shows Set to Holiday Music around Indy

Christmas lights have always been one of my favorite parts of Christmas, next to Santa of course!

When I was a kid my family would pick a Friday before Christmas to pile in the car and drive around, silently in awe of the beauty of the lights. We’d blast Christmas songs from the radio and imagine the lights were dancing to the music.

But light displays have improved tremendously since then. Now, we don’t need to pretend–there are plenty of light shows that don’t just play music, they are synchronized to it. And remarkably, many of them are free because they are located in residential areas.

So grab the kids, some blankets, and your favorite hot cocoa and enjoy a night of light set to music. When you’re done, check out our list of where to see the best Christmas light houses.
