Crazy Christmas Lights in Livermore

During the Christmas season, Livermore is a great place to drive around and check out awesome Christmas light displays like the one you see in the video I took above. That awesome Frozen themed show is at 646 Zermatt Street. The creator even has a website: with info and videos from past shows.

But that’s not the only show in town. There is a great website (started in Livermore) called It’ll list all the awesome holiday light displays all around California. What’s even better is that you can select 10 addresses, and it’ll even plot driving directions to see them all. How cool is that!

Enjoy the holidays Livermore!

I make a quick turn left turn, tires squealing barely clinging to the road. I enter the parking lot a little too fast and pull into a parking spot breaking a little too hard. As I pull out the keys I look at my wife. She has that look that I know too well.
