1510 Claiborne Street Tacky Lights
Looking for a winter wonderland in 50 degrees? Look no further. At this stop, 40 inflatables adorn the "snow" covered lawn. Go at the right time and you might get a candy cane from Santa himself.
408 South Laurel Tacky Lights
Located in historic Oregon Hill, Liz Kolonay and Marc Leslie's house's is a neighborhood effort. Since they started lighting up, their neighbors have given them things to add, and they did most of their mold shopping in Pennsylvania. It's a dazzling display of just about everything.
7709 Duncaster Road Tacky Lights
Located in Stratford Hills just across the river, these homeowners took a few years off from the razzle dazzle but are back this year in full effect. They have moving lights that are included in the 50,000+ twinklies that they've put up this year. Definitely worth a look.
3325 Warner Road Tacky Lights
Also in Stratford Hills, this home features lots and lots of lights, but also little boxy dioramas that Richmond.com describes as invoking the memories of display windows in department stores.
It's Monument Avenue. It's Christmastime. It's Richmond. Just do it.
1510 Grove Avenue Tacky Lights
This lovely home in Richmond's Fan District is lit up for the third year in a row and the homeowner, Beth Bailey, takes a lot of delight bringing Christmas Cheer to Grove Avenue. There are several other houses in the fan that put on the dog, so encourage your driver to take his or her time in this neighborhood.
3307 Kensington Avenue
Anthony Caramucci, the guy responsible for the tacky lights at 3307 Kensington, relishes in the fact that they are tacky. That accounts for the 20+ inflatables and enormous Santa Claus in the front yard. It's definitely worth a trip through Richmond's Museum District.
