Coquitlam

This Coquitlam household is decked out in red and green just in time for the holiday season.

The display offers something for every visitor to the cul-de-sac, including Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus, carollers and the Nativity scene.

The home will be lit up nightly from 6 to 9:30 p.m. until Jan. 3, 2024.

The Pacheco's have their house decorated with thousands of lights programmed to music with signing bulbs singing fun Christmas songs.

Visitors can listen on their radio on 100.1 FM or they can press Rudolph's nose to here the song.

Shows take place at 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. every day until Jan. 4, 2024.

Happy Holidays from Forestridge Christmas Yard hosted by the Bileskys. Lights are on nightly 6 to 10 p.m. They will be on until Jan. 15.

Special note: this is the home's last Christmas display after 23 years of collecting donations for Variety - The Children's Charity.

Come by and enjoy the festive display. Take time to take a photo with Santa either in his house, or with Santa singing and dancing. Enjoy gazing at the elves workshop where they are busy helping Santa get the children's toys ready for Christmas. Look to the rooftop to see Santa's sleigh arrive. Then watch him wave to you from the chimney as he disappears down it. Enjoy listening to the carols playing.

You can check out the Forestridge Christmas Yard on Facebook. A lot of the pieces will be available after Jan. 15 on Marketplace.

John and Trudy Wolff, for the 40th year, invite you to come and enjoy their home made Christmas display.

More than 100 hand-painted display pieces on the house and in the yard.

Two themes: traditional Christmas with manger scene, shepherds, wise men and angels, as well as contemporary Christmas with Santa, reindeer, toy trains, nutcrackers and singing snowmen.

Lit up daily with over 6,000 lights from 4 p.m. to midnight.

This Coquitlam household is draped with thousands of multi-coloured lights, while also making up holiday shapes on the lawn next to decorated trees, several inflatables and lighted deer.
