ust because Houston doesn’t have snowy white Christmas and isn’t the greatest town for roasting anything on an open fire when the temperatures are still warm doesn’t mean you can’t still have the most wonderful time of year. Make the holiday spirit come alive by going to see some of the best snowy displays and twinkling lights that our city has to offer.

Our team has compiled a list that our customers have shared with us over the last couple of years of their favorite drive through Christmas lights in Houston and the surrounding area.


Please remember everything is subjected to change so check before making the trip and anytime you are in public, wear your mask and carry sanitizer.


Drive-thru Holiday Light Shows


Rudolf Light Show

Located in the Tomball area just a short drive from Houston is a wonderful drive through light show that kicks off on November 5th and runs until the first weekend in January. Tickets are $30 online or $35 at the gate. The tickets online are good for any date. During this drive through you will see over one million twinkling lights many of which are Texas themed including oil derricks light up and Frosty the snow man wearing his ten-gallon Texas cowboy hat all light up with Christmas lights. There are several drives through tunnels, large holiday trees, faces light up and signing along to the songs as all the lights are synchronized to your favorite music to enhance the experience. Tune into 98.3 FM and get prepared to sing along. The downside to this drive though in Houston is that its not exactly in the city and the lines are long as cars only drive about 5 miles per hour to make sure to take in all the lights and sounds. The bonus is besides all the lights there is no pushy sales of popcorn or hot chocolate so make sure to bring your thermos and snack. Another benefit is that you do not have to worry about mask or social distancing because you sit safely in your car the entire Christmas light drive through.


Hurricane Harbor Light Drive Thru

Located in Spring just off of interstate 45 you will find The Light Park a very merry drive thru that’s fun for the while family for $35.00 a ticket. Tickets are nonrefundable so make sure you can attend before purchasing or better yet buy you r ticket at the gate. This drive thru includes millions of Christmas lights, music, and is built in for social distancing.
