Holiday Lights in Mid-Missouri

Visit the communities of Crocker, Dixon, Richland, St. Robert and Waynesville as they Light Up Pulaski!

December 8-26, 2022

Round up your family and friends and head out for an evening of holiday lights. Community members, non-profit organizations, and businesses Light up Pulaski County, bringing holiday cheer to the season.

The Waynesville-St. Robert Chamber organizes the holiday trail which features a “holiday-spirited” competition in three categories – Community Members, Businesses, and Non-Profit Organizations. The first year, 2020, the trail provided over 4 hours of fun, and 2021 grew to over 6 hours of amazing lights and holiday cheer! We expect 2022 to be bigger and better, so plan on several nights to see them all.

The holiday light trail is self-guided. You choose the locations you want to see. Start and stop as you want. Simply access the online interactive map to help guide you from display to display.

2021 participants included the Shockley residence in Crocker, Missouri, which featured a lighted walking trail that wove throughout the property. Historic Devils Elbow, a magical ride from the former Elbow Inn, across the 1923 Steel bridge, to the former Devils Elbow Cafe. Circle through the City of Dixon Chamber businesses. Enjoy the joyful lights and music of Hall residence and browse the stunning LaRochelle residence which features a fountain and gazebo. The humorous Pulaski County Sewer District display is a “must-stop”.
