Quick Information for Visiting Our Home Display
STL Holiday Lighting began with Nick's home Christmas light display and we take great pride in continuing that tradition.
Our display is located at 19027 Old Manchester Road, Wildwood MO 63069, just a little past Six Flags. If you are familiar with Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park, we are located on the same road (Fox Creek Road), just a few minutes further up the hill. We are the first house on the right after crossing the Highway 100 intersection. (After the intersection, the name of Fox Creek Road changes to Old Manchester Road.)
Our display is open to the public free of charge every Christmas season from Thanksgiving through New Year's Day. We turn the display on at dusk and usually leave it on until about 10pm. (Please note that we DO turn off the display and close off access if we feel that inclement weather has made the driveway hazardous.)
If you and your family would like to see the display, feel free to come by, stay awhile, and take as many pictures or videos as you want. We have a half-circle driveway with a pull-off section halfway up, so you will be able to easily drive in and out of the display. (If there is not a line behind you, you are welcome to park in the pull-off section and take your time enjoying the show.)
There is a donation box at the end of the driveway but please know that donations are entirely optional - you truly are welcome to visit our display for free. Each year, we do a charity project for a local family in need or for a community-oriented organization and any donations you leave go towards that project. (See our "In the Community" page to learn how your donations have helped us make a difference in our local community over the past few years.)
Our display grows every year, with new scenes being added regularly, so even if you have been to visit us before, there is a good chance that there will be something new for you to see. When Nick started the display in 1996, it included 30,000 animated lights, spread throughout scenes in his and his neighbor's front yards. (His gracious neighbors were kind enough to let him take over their yards every holiday season.) Since then, Nick has moved to a bigger home with a MUCH bigger yard that can accommodate his display, that now includes over 200,000 light bulbs! As of 2019, the display has been upgraded to LED lights and includes over 20 scenes, one of which is a timed light show that tells the story of the nativity.
Videos of Our Home Display
Our home display has grown a lot since Nick started it in 1996 and we have taken a LOT of videos and pictures of it since then!
This is a 2-minute video that walks through our entire display in 2016. At that time, the display had 200,000 light bulbs, put out 80,000 watts, used 500 amps and cost $2.50 per hour to run. Since then, we have added new scenes, updated the nativity scene to its own animated show with rope lights (which added more light bulbs) and also upgraded to LED bulbs (which significantly reduced our amperage).
