This Fort Bend County neighborhood located off 99 in Richmond is well known for it's extravagant Christmas lights displays! Some homes are even synchronized with music! All of the residents are encouraged to participate in the annual Christmas light contest making things really fun. Holiday hayrides are offered on weekends, and depending on the night, you might even run into Santa!


Pin Oak (Map it)

A long-time Katy favorite, this well-established neighborhood very near Katy Mills Mall on Kingsland Blvd. just south of IH-10 has become famous for their all-out, Griswold-style Christmas displays. Several homes even have lights timed to popular songs that can be enjoyed when you tune in to a certain frequency, and car lines back up for almost half a mile to see the show. It's worth driving through to see all the homes that are able to spread some holiday cheer!
