Where to See Christmas Lights in Baton Rouge

There is just something about the sound of classic Christmas carols and sipping on hot cocoa while strolling under twinkling lights that really gets the warm, magical holiday spirits going. We invite you to pause with us and take part in this magic as we have compiled a list of some of Baton Rouge’s most amazing twinkling light displays. We might not have a speckle of snow, but who needs snow when these light displays light up our southern skies?

If you are looking for great holiday events in Baton Rouge, we have you covered. And if you would like to cut down your own Christmas tree in Louisiana, we have you covered there, too. If you’re feeling like a road trip, you can drive an hour to New Orleans for dozens of family-friendly holiday events. Alternatively, head West to our friends in Lafayette to enjoy the holiday season with our neighbors in Acadiana (or check out some incredible Christmas lights around the Lafayette area). If you still haven’t had enough Louisiana holiday fun, New Orleans has amazing Christmas light displays for the family as well. Let’s all take advantage of all the holiday spirit in Baton Rouge with kids.

  1. Great read! I’m not sure we have visited all of these over the years. We usually always do the messengers but have also tried to take the kids to as many others as we can find. Will definitely check more of these out this year thanks for the info!

  2. Such a great list! Always enjoy the light displays that y’all showcase. I encourage y’all to add the Christmas lights @ 655 Bungalow Ln., Baton Rouge LA 70802 to the list. More people should see this place 🙂 My kiddos always love it! The homeowners do fun displays for Christmas, Halloween, Easter and Mardi Gras. Always full of hidden details fun surprises 🙂
