Must-See Christmas Lights Around Lee’s Summit

The Ask Cathy Team has an “in” with Santa's elves, and we were able to procure this fantastic list of Holiday light displays around the Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, and Independence areas, PERFECT for a night filled with oooh’s and aah’s as you drive past the festive, colorful, and unique presentations. So pack up the car with your loved ones and head out on a Winter nighttime adventure!

To make it easier on you, Rudolph has even mapped out a suggested route thanks to his navigation system ie: his shiny, red nose!  Be sure to take some photos to mark your family memories! 

Have fun and drive safely! 

Editors Note: We expanded our Christmas light list for 2022, featuring some additional spots Kansas City and beyond with a new blog, which you find here.
