While holiday traditions may look different this year, you can still enjoy a drive around the Bozeman area admiring all the wonderful holiday lights. Knoff Group Real Estate has put together a list of our favorite holiday light displays in the area, so put some seasonal tunes on the radio, grab a cup of hot cocoa and get in the holiday spirit!
#3 – This tree off Valley Center is decorated top to trunk in icy white/blue lights – it’s located near the intersection of Valley Center and the underpass to Frontage Road.
#2 – This tree off Cobb Hill Road is decorated in a warm display of red and gold lights – it’s BIG! The tree can be seen on the south side of Huffine near the intersection of Cobb Hill and Huffine Lane.
#1 – This tree at the Emerson Center on S Grand is a classic in downtown Bozeman. This tree is massive and the gold lights bring holiday cheer.
#8 – Montana Hall located in the middle of the Montana State University campus glows with holiday spirit each year. Take a walk through the MSU campus to admire the lights on this building.
#7- Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park in Whitehall offers candlelight tours in December, weather permitting. This two mile tour takes you through a historic cave, with the lower half of the cave lit by candlelight. Make sure you are dressed appropriately, as you may need to walk to and from the cave in snowy conditions. Reservations are required and group size is limited. http://stateparks.mt.gov/lewis-and-clark-caverns/
#6 – Downtown Bozeman has some super unique and iconic decorations. The Christmas Spiders hang lit at four intersections over Main Street. Store windows are decorated to the max, depicting winter scenes, covered in lights, mistletoe and garland. Take a stroll down Main Street to experience the magic.
#5 Belgrade Senior Center field at 92 E Cameron in Belgrade has been decorated with thousands of lights and holiday inflatables – featuring a light tunnel trail that is sure to delight all who venture through. The Belgrade Community Coalition is responsible for this magical display as part of their Festival of Lights – which included a Saturday evening Christmas Convoy of light decorated big rigs, dump trucks and construction/farm vehicles this year that wound through town. Super fun!
#4 – 902 W Babcock Street is a house covered with countless lights that spell out “Bah Humbug” year round – they are lit for the holiday season. In the driveway, there is the biggest blow up reindeer that we’ve ever seen.
#3 – 8670 Fowler Lane (Sherri’s Christmas Drive Through) is covered in lights and has a huge display of Christmas inflatables. The homeowners allow visitors to drive through the wraparound driveway and take it all in.
#2 – 313 Powder Run Avenue provides an annual display of flashing holiday lights that are synchronized to music. Tune into the radio station listed in the yard, and you will see the lights dance to holiday music! This stop is unlike any other on the list.
#1 – 4486 Shadow Glen Drive hands down has the best holiday décor in town, with the house, roof and garage covered in lights. The garage is decorated as Santa’s Workshop, with tons of ginormous holiday inflatables. The owners allow people to walk through the yard and garage to admire the show.
