Not only are there an amazing amount of beautiful lights, but there are hundreds of homemade and hand painted decorations to view. You could spend hours finding new things to look at in this display. I've visited for over 8 years, and there's always something new and fun to look at. It's always meticulously planned and executed, and it's a beautiful labor of love. Don't miss this gem in Richmond!!

About Tacky Light Tours

A Tacky Light Tour is a trip made with family and friends from one home or business insanely decorated for Christmas to another usually made in a passenger car, but sometimes taken in limousines, vans and tour buses. Traditionally, displays with more than 10,000 Christmas lights qualify to be included among the very best Christmas displays found on the Tacky Light Tour.
