See The Holiday Lights in Your Local Neighborhood

By Informational Post December 4, 2022
Macaroni Kid families, this is an updated post for 2022 from one that Macaroni Kid publishes each year. Its been viewed ALOT through our search bar and so I am updating it. 

One of the highlights each December is to go to various neighborhoods in Ventura County ( and Woodland Hills) and catch all the very cool light displays that our neighbors and friends have created in our neighborhoods. So I thought I would start a list of where you can go to see Christmas lights this year.
Ventura Harbor Village

The picturesque Village shines even brighter with its colorful of Greetings holiday display dazzling the shores now through New Year’s Eve. Witness thousands of sparkling beach-hued lights of blue, aqua, and green, spiraling sea pearls, whimsical colorful trees, lush wreaths, and other magical decor that bounces off the marina waters. The illuminated outdoor attraction inspires joy for all. Sunset is the prime time to stroll through Ventura Harbor Village’s twinkling courtyards and catch the stunning winter sunsets.

 Create a new holiday tradition this year by booking a reservation, available nightly now through December 31, 2020, for a Private Holiday Light Boat Tour through Ventura Boat Rentals for just you and your family or loved ones to view the lights reflecting off the waters in the Ventura Harbor and the Ventura Keys.
Gemini Street

The top spot for viewing Christmas lights in Camarillo is on Gemini Street in Camarillo. The homes on Gemini Street and Waverly Avenue south of Dunnigan Street in Camarillo are annually lit up and decorated with cartoon characters, trains, Santa's, snowmen, and plenty of lights and other decorations to celebrate the holiday season. You can choose to drive it or to walk it. 

To get there take Arneill Street North past Ponderosa to Dunnigan. Turn right on Dunnigan and Gemini is the 4th street on your right. What began on Gemini street has grown to encompass adjacent  streets Waverly Ave and Saturn St.


Downtown Oxnard Christmas Tree Lane

Every holiday season, one of Ventura County's biggest residential light displays lights up the historic section of Downtown Oxnard on F and G streets between 5th and Palm. Christmas Tree Lane opens Sunday December 12 at 6PM and runs until December 26, 2021 nightly from 6pm to 10pm. Come see the "Colors of Christmas" at the largest Residential Christmas Display in Ventura County. 

One of the largest displays of Christmas lighting in a residential neighborhood in Ventura County. Come check it out each year from the 2nd Sunday in December (December 11) thru Dec 26. Ventura County's Largest Residential Christmas Light Display. Ten blocks on two streets. Always runs the second Sunday in December thru Christmas.

Candy Cane Lane

How to find Moorpark's Candy Cane Lane? Drive down Pinedale Road in Moorpark abd you will see lawns are decorated with polar bears, giant snowflakes, gift boxes and even Santa and his reindeer.  Just off Countrywood Drive, transforms into a magical Candy Cane Lane and winter wonderland where all is merry and very, very bright and very sparkly. We found that nearly 40 homes were strung up with lights and decorated for the holidays.

Located in Moorpark at Timberdale and Pinedale Roads off of Countrywood Drive. Take Tierra Rejada east to Countrywood, you will find it is across from Moorpark's High School and  then Timberdale is 2 blocks in on your left. 


Auburn Lane

Auburn Lane is a small community in Simi Valley, CA, known for its friendly neighbors, cozy porches and balconies, and festive holiday décor. Located at Summerwood Avenue,  off of Cochran, west of Stearns in Simi Valley.

You can check out the lights on their Facebook Page at

The holiday festivities have begun here at Auburn Lane! The neighborhood has been working very hard getting ready for this year and I have to say, it’s looking as beautiful as ever.  We’ll be welcoming Santa on the 9th (Fri) and 17th (Sat) this year!  Free photo opportunities will be available. We will also have a card table present for all the children who visit to write holiday cards to our older citizens in nursing homes around Simi that might need a little extra love and holiday cheer.  We’ll have a coffee and hot cocoa truck to keep us all warm on those nights as well.  

The Royal HS Choir will be there on the 9th singing carols for us and a second high school choir is in the works for the 17th. These choirs use this event to raise funds to help fund their programs.  So, if you come out to enjoy the evening, please consider donating and show your appreciation for these kids, their talent, and their generosity spending a weekend night performing for all of us. 

Also, please be courteous to the people who live in Auburn Lane. There will be trash cans around the neighborhood, please use them.  Don’t block driveways.  Stay off of lawns.  Basically, please just be a good human. Easy enough 😁

Parking is available and suggested at the LDS Church parking lot immediately to the west of the neighborhood entrance.  (There will be signs) Parking is very difficult on these nights, so it is highly suggested those coming utilize the chance to walk and enjoy the lights. 


Candy Cane Lane

Candy Cane Lane has been a tradition in Woodland Hills since 1952 and the residents have tried to outdo each other with their light displays each year. 

Candy Cane Lane in Woodland Hills  begins on the 2nd Saturday of December and lasts through the end of the year.  It's located at the intersection of Lubao and Oxnard Streets (by Pierce Collage) in Woodland Hills. People drive slowly down the street with their headlights dimmed so that everyone can enjoy the lights. The closest exit is Winnetka, off of the 101 freeway.

Directions: From the 101 freeway in the West part of the San Fernando Valley in Woodland Hills exit at Winnetka Avenue. Drive north on Winnetka Ave, when just across from Pierce Junior College turn right
on Oxnard Street. If there is a traffic jam try parking and walk.
