Christmas Lights Tampa - Christmas Events and Christmas Light Show - Nights of Shimmering Lights - History

Nights of Shimmering lights began about nine years ago in a small garage. The two founders, Stephanie and Amanda, hold a passion for interactive Christmas light displays. Each year they would add on more and more computerized lights to their holiday collection, then invite the neighbors over to view it. Pretty soon, the whole neighborhood would turn up at their home every holiday for their growing light show.

Eventually, the garage and the yard could no longer hold them. Stephanie and Amanda knew that they held a growing passion for Christmas light displays, and they wanted to be able to share it with all families from across the country at a low cost.

Thus, Nights of Shimmering Lights was born. Volunteers and crew members spend more than 2,000 hours setting up over 1,000,000 lights within 1,500 displays for miles of family enjoyment. The set up begins immediately after Halloween, with a tear down process lasting well into January.

Nights of Shimmering Lights has devoted itself to providing a holiday tradition for the entire family. New additions, such as the Christmas Village and Breakfast with Santa, JingleBell 5K, have been added to spice up your family tradition.

Come out and see the devotion and hard work that our founders have created, specially for your family!
