For many families, driving through the neighborhood enjoying the glow of lights during the holiday season is an unforgettable memory. Las Vegas is known as the “City of Lights” and Las Vegas residents certainly help us live up to the name during the holiday season. Samantha Chian spoke with some homeowners who are sharing the Spirit of the Season by putting on some favorite Vegas light displays.
We begin our journey in the SW part of town at Silver Cliff Light show which is located in the Mountain’s Edge community near Blue Diamond and El Capitan. Homeowner, Sylvain Brouillette shared that the idea of starting a light show came to him four years ago around Halloween while watching YouTube. He studied videos to learn more and by Christmas the same year he began a small show.
He has grown his show over the past four years to include a large library of music, video projection and even a radio signal. Stay up to date on his show on his Facebook page! He often shares select nights with photo op visits from characters like Elsa and the Grinch. Visitors have also reported seeing snow fall some nights!
For homeowner and light display creator Frank, it’s all about bringing smiles to others and the personal accomplishment that putting on a display of this scale brings. Frank shared that the process of building his computerized light display located in the NW Centennial part of town begins just one week after Christmas and is an effort that lasts all through the year. Programming one new song as a part of the show can take up to 2-3 days!
One of the most beloved light displays in the Valley is the House on Robindale. It’s centrally located between Eastern and Paradise on Robindale road. Marc Savard originally began the light display 12 years ago. He announced the sale of his home earlier in 2022 on his Facebook page and hundreds of comments flooded the post with gratitude. House on Robindale has become a staple holiday tradition in our community. Just after Thanksgiving, Marc made another post with great news. Thanks to the new homeowner, the display would continue. Hear their amazing story and how working together saved this tradition in the video below!
We hope you’ve enjoyed seeing and learning more about some of the amazing light displays here in Las Vegas. For more heartwarming holiday stories and things to do around Las Vegas during the holidays, visit our full Spirit of the Season page.
