The Allison Christmas Spectacular is celebrating 12 years! This year, The Allison Christmas Spectacular is receiving a complete overhaul to include 100% LED lights! This will help make the display be bolder and brighter than ever before!

Returning this year are 3 mega trees, 12 mini trees, 14 leaping arches, 102.5 FM WACS Radio, hundreds of strobes, and all of our previously featured dancing sequences. We are again featuring over 200,000 lights, dancing to 7 songs this year! We have two NEW dancing sequences debuting this year: Selah’s “Little Drummer Boy” and an updated version of Michael W. Smith’s “Christmas Angels!”

There is no charge to come see the lights, and the display is a drive-by. The lights will be displayed Thanksgiving through New Year’s from 6-10 pm nightly. We will be hiring a deputy to be on duty each night this year, and we will again be taking donations to help cover the deputy fees.

Feel free to check out and like our Facebook page to receive updates regarding The Allison Christmas Spectacular! Be sure to also visit our official website at allisonchristmasspectacular.com. We hope you and your family and friends are able to come by for our biggest and brightest year ever!
