All the lights are shining so brightly everywhere on Jeater Bend! Located in Celebration, this is the spot to go this Christmas season for beautiful Christmas lights set to classic Christmas tunes. Don’t miss it this year as this is the last year that Jeater Bend will be hosting their Christmas festivities!
History of the Lights
The Lights on Jeater Bend began when one creator had the idea to create a spectacular light display on his home. In 2010, this vision came to fruition in their first year. Over the years, more homes have joined in to add to the show.
The creator was inspired to create a light show that was free for families to enjoy. They have collected donations for charity every year but the goal was to provide a free event for families who could not participate in other events throughout the city, so donations are not required-just greatly appreciated. The creator of the event also wanted to create a show that people could park and enjoy in person, rather than a drive through experience. Although you can drive through if you’d like! For me, I love to take my dog to see Christmas lights, so we stayed in our car. However, I might venture out next time and let my dog see the bright colors up close and personal!
Even while you drive through the neighborhood on the way to Jeater Bend, you’ll see so many houses who have decked their lawns with beautiful decor and lights. There was truly so much to see and so many houses getting in on the fun! Upon reaching Jeater Bend, there are plenty of parking spaces close by if you’d like to walk or of course you can drive by. A sign will show you the radio station you can tune in to to hear the music that is playing in synchronicity with the lights, so you can turn it up as loud or quiet as you like in your car.
There are so many incredible decorations. From the dancing lights to a huge Santa made with lights, there is plenty to look at all around. I loved looking at all of the Disney decorations, like lots of Santa Mickeys and Star Wars inflatables. There is also a bucket for donations to charity that they collect every year out front! The lights are so incredible that they were even featured on the show “The Christmas Light Fight” on ABC!
Get into the holly jolly spirit of the Christmas season at Jeater Bend located in Celebration! This is the last year that the show will take place, so don’t miss out on your chance to see the lights sparkle for the last time. Hope you have a be-yule-tiful holiday season!
Celebration is a beautiful area of Central Florida that is full of families who love community and the outdoors. Throughout their beautiful neighborhoods, you’ll see so many trails and lakes to walk through with your family or furry pup! Believe it or not, Celebration was actually originally developed by the Walt Disney Company, and you can definitely see some touches of magic all throughout the city. Literally sharing a road with Walt Disney World Resort, Celebration is incredibly close to both Disney and the Universal theme parks. Interested in homes in Celebration?
