When you see this holiday light display there will be no denying the Johnston Family loves Christmas. Located in Dale City onEvansdale Road, the Johnston’s light display has been a fixture in the community for three years. This home-spun display has lights, ornaments, decorations and inflatables. In the true giving spirt, the the Johnstons enter their home in a competition in an effort to win money that they donate to help the homeless in the community.

Lake Ridge Christmas Lights
The Lake Ridge Christmas Lights on Stone Lined Circle is an Animated Christmas light show set to a variety of traditional and modern music. The shows run for about 20 minutes on the hour and half hour. The synchronized light show can be seen every night from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. This is one house not to be missed!
Collins FamilyJim Collins and his family have been putting up a holiday wonderland at his home at the corner of Smoketown Road and Cavalier Drive in Lake Ridge for over 12 years. There are a number of inflatables filling the yard, everything from Santa to a holiday-themed Ferris wheel. The display was started for a much smaller audience, the first three grandchildren, however, the number of grandchildren have grown and so has the amount of delighted on-looker. The display itself has grown immensely year by year with anywhere from 10-20 new additions every holiday season. This is a fun and light-hearted holiday display sure to please everyone especially, the little ones.
The Brittle Family
The Brittle family has been decorating 14311 Fairview lane in Dale City for more than 30 years. This display is more traditional with figurines and lights rather than inflatables. This huge display of the joy and happiness of the holidays can be seen until around 10pm every night in December.
Located at 12557 McIntire Drive in Lake Ridge, the Radcliffe’s also have had a synchronized music and lights display that runs on a 25-minute loop of festive Christmas music. The Radcliffe show has not been confirmed to be up for 2017, however last year this show was amazing! Will update once more information is available.
The Carltons at 13047 Qualls Lane, Woodbridge, 22193, have a synchronized lights show from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tune your radio to 88.1 to fully enjoy this display. This show is also not confirmed for 2017, but based on the buzz from last year, I wanted to add it to the list an the tour.
The Rodriguez Family
Linna Rodriguez puts a lot of time and effort transforming her home for the holidays each year. This “Home of the 20ft Santa” is one of the local favorites. The spectacular home light show is located at 13730 Kaywood Drive, Woodbridge, VA, 22193. Add this one to your visit list, as it is a must see! The family welcomes people to drive by and take pictures, so what are you waiting for?
Two other shows I would like to mention are not in Woodbridge, VA but not too far either:
