Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga on Thoroughbred and Sapphire




For nearly 25 years the "people of Thoroughbred Lane" (Near Hillside and Sapphire north of the 210 Freeway) in Rancho Cucamonga have been putting on some of the best Christmas lights displays in the Inland Empire. The light displays are usually on beginning just after Thanksgiving and stay up only until Christmas day. They light up around dark and to keep the neighborhood sane, are usually turned off by 11pm. Police usually setup barricades and control traffic as Christmas approaches so to beat the crowds it's best to come early in the month of December - Don't wait until Christmas Eve or Christmas night!

The light displays are around Thoroughbred near Sapphire. If coming on the 210 Freeway, exit Carnelian and go north (toward the mountains). Come early and expect to sit in a line of cars especially if you come in the days just before Christmas.

The best (secret) place to park is on Vinmar Avenue or Orchard St. Come up Carnelian to Hillside, turn left and head west. Go PAST Sapphire one block and turn left on Vinmar. Follow Vinmar to Orchard and turn left, or go past Orchard and park before Sapphire. You are then a short walk down Sapphire to the lights.

Last Day for Christmas Lights In Rancho on Thoroughbred

Can someone please tell me the last day for the lights? :/

Re: Last Day for Christmas Lights In Rancho on Thoroughbred

As it says in the words on the page above, and several times in the words in the comments, below, the last day for the lights was Christmas.

Re: Last Day for Christmas Lights In Rancho on Thoroughbred

Thank you I did read that however there are comments that state that they are up after Christmas I just wanted it verified

Re: Last Day for Christmas Lights In Rancho on Thoroughbred

Yah the show is basically over after Christmas. There might be a few stragglers that don't get their lights down right away, but it's over.

Re: Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga on Sapphire

What is the last day the lights will be on till? I have family coming from out of town for New Years and would love to show them.

Re: Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga on Sapphire

Unfortunately, many of the residents take their lights down the day after Christmas. My husband and I will walk our dogs on Thoroughbred the morning of 26 December and people are already taking lights down. By the time we walk again later in the afternoon, there is no trace of Christmas lights at some of the elaborately decorated residences. You would never have guessed that they had a Christmas display the night before. Others may keep their lights on until New Year's. It is a hit or miss after Christmas.

Take the 60 or the 10 West to the 15 North, then the 210 West/Pasadena.

Re: Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga on Thoroughbred and ...

Were you able to drive through like years past or is it just walkimg permitted now?

Re: Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga on Thoroughbred and ...

We drove through but we will definetly walk next time. I was too worried about not hitting pedestrians and couldn't take my time to look at all the displays. Besides they have hot chocolate, churro, cupcake, and coffee stands. It just seemed like more fun to walk. I have a 5 and 8 year old and they kept saying they would rather walk. We just weren't prepared for the cold so we stayed in our car.

Re: Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga on Thoroughbred and ...

We did the same thing last Thur. the kids kept saying lets get out but wasn't prepared for it and yep trying to focus on the people walking didn't let me see much :) We might go again this week and walk.

Re: Christmas Lights In Rancho Cucamonga on Thoroughbred and ...

Was it crowded on a Sunday night??
