IRON COUNTY – The stars aren’t the only thing shining in Iron County during December.

The holiday light displays throughout the community are dazzling to say the least. Cedar City is transformed into a winter wonderland – featuring a backyard stroll down Candy Cane Lane and an entire neighborhood temporarily transformed into Christmas Lane.

Thanks to the help of Santa’s little helpers (aka expert local residents), we were able to find some of the best displays in the county.

From Cedar City to Parowan, here’s a list of our top 10 favorites (in no particular order):

1. 533 Deer Trail Circle, Cedar City

A cheerful display of colorful lights. Bonus: The Grinch is in the front yard of an un-lit home across the street.

 2. 715 W. Mt. View Drive, Cedar City

Dozens of milk jugs decorated with multicolored lights line the sidewalk and driveway of this home, making it a very unique display to visit.

 3. 1339 South 500 West, Cedar City

This home has a fun set-up including: moving lights on the garage, chiming music, and Santa with his reindeer.

 4. 1040 S. Cedar Knolls West, Cedar City

You think you’ve seen it all – until you visit this home and see a miniature ferris wheel as well as elves on a teetor totter in the front yard.

 5. 3557 West 1600 North, Cedar City

This beautiful home has several reindeer scattered throughout the yard and several nicely lit pine trees.

 6. 3531 North 250 East, Enoch

Realistic icicle lights, a snow globe, and lights that change color make this a fun sight to see.

 7. 264 South 500 West, Parowan

Tune in your radio to 96.9 to view a dancing light display synchronized to the music.

 8. 26 North 1150 West, Cedar City

This home is decked out in the front yard AND the back yard! Visitors are welcome to park their car and take a walk down “Candy Cane Lane.” A donation box is at the end of the walk, where all proceeds go to Make-A-Wish Foundation.

 9. 200 North 600 West (by the corner)

A darling display of lights – including vintage cut-outs of Santa and Mrs. Claus, reindeer, and a nativity throughout the yard.

10. Christmas Lane (behind Cedar Ridge Golf Course)

This entire neighborhood is themed ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, as each home features a different page of the story. Be sure to spot the Star Wars characters, Olaf, Santa’s clothes hanging on a clothes line, a penguin slide, Santa playing football, snowman cheerleaders, and several other cheerful sights all throughout Christmas Lane.

 11. Bonus: Old Church Road, Toquerville

Although it’s not in Iron County, this display in Toquerville is incredible – and certainly worth the drive!
