Oak Hills Lights 2021 Christmas light show.
Oak Hills Lights 2021

In 2021 we had over 15,000 individual LED pixels, which can each display millions of different colors. We also used a projector to add an additional virtual matrix and video display which bumps our pixel total to almost 34,000. We are actively planning and building our 2022 show!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by in 2021,
especially those who said “Hi!”.
Also a big thank you to our very-supportive neighbors and community!

Please see our About page for more information.

Generally we start setting up right after Halloween, and start our show the weekend after Thanksgiving. We will post a detailed schedule and playlist for 2022 as we get closer to Fall.

Oak Hills Lights is a hobby and is presented for free to our community.

  • xLights Around the World Project 2021

    Every year a group of dedicated volunteers does a compilation video of hundreds of shows like ours, from all over the world, playing sequences with the same music. This year they chose two songs- one non-Christmas and one Christmas. (They did this last year too.) I’m not a fan of …
