Picture This: Lighting Up the Holidays in Greater Scranton

Local Families Put on Spectacular Christmas Light Displays

NEPA’s neighborhoods sure know how to deck the halls. We hopped in the Jeep and cruised through the Scranton suburbs, searching for the most festive, over-the-top displays we could find. Seriously, these lights would even make Clark Griswold jealous.

First stop: the Peckville Christmas House. Created by the Harhut family, this display features over 1,000 blow molds. It’s so impressive that they competed on ABC’s holiday decorating show, The Great Christmas Light Fight, in 2017. Visitors can drive by or walk through the path on the property.

The Peckville Christmas House is located at 1130 Marion Street in Peckville. You can still see the display, which opens daily at 5 p.m. through January 7. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.

After that, we stopped by the Christmas Lights House in South Side Scranton. Every year, the Smurl family and their neighbors pull out all the stops with twinkling lights, window scenes and decorations galore.

You can view the Christmas Lights House at 300 Prospect Street in Scranton. Take a drive around the block, or enjoy a crisp winter stroll past the houses.

Check out our photos for a little glimpse at the holiday magic. And make sure to visit one of NEPA’s spectacular lights displays this holiday season.
