Christmas time In The Inland Empire....

I Thought I Would Summarize Some Of The Local Small Town Christmas Activities, Not That They Aren't Important But Rather That There Are So Many Of Them. You Could Spend The Entire Christmas Season Driving Around To The Various Light Displays, Parades And Community Displays And Not Finish Till They Started Taking Them Down In January. I Know Some People Who Will Do That. Go Out Every Night As Much As They Can. So Here Goes.

The Small Community Of Norco Will Hosts Its 4Th Annual Horse Town Parade Of Lights And Winter Festival Starting At The Nellie Weaver Hall, Located At 3737 Crestvill Ave And Travel Along The Main Street Of Town And Turn At The Station At The 15 Freeway.

There Is One More Housing Track In North Cucamonga That Is All Dressed Up For The Holidays. And This Is The Thoroughbred Lights Complex Involving Over 200 Homes All Strung Together. It Is One Of The Largest Housing Track Displays In The Inland Empire.

It Is Located Between The Main Streets Of Saphire And Thoroughbred Down To Hill Side. Police And Volunteers Are Ever Present And It Is A Walking Experience. People Are Asked To Park Outside Of The Complex.

That's It For Now. I Am Still Watching And Asking My Friends About New Christmas Light Displays And As I Check Them Out I Will Post Them.

we saw the Christmas lights in Rancho up near Saphire the other night. it was freezing cold, but so worth it! they were beautiful.

The Throughbred lights are great.m lived a couple blocks from there for 10 yrs so not great for residents. Also off of Archibald and church there is a house with dancing Christmas lights. And then on 8th ave between carnelian and grove there is a small block lit up as much as Thoroughbred

Where can I park for Christmas on saphire

There is some info on where to park for the xMas lights near Sapphire on this page: parking for the Christmas Lights

I went to the Thoroughbred lights on 12/23 and let me tell you...go with patience. It took us 2, yes 2 full hours to get to the street where you can start viewing the lights. Unfortunately, by the time we got there, my 2 yr old was no so interested due to being in the car so long. They are beautiful, but like I said, just know before you go especially if you have kids.

When do the lights at Thoroughbred stop (date wise)?
