What Kind of Lights Do You Use?

Lights Under Louisville was the first Christmas light show in the U.S.A. to use all LED lights.  We do that to conserve power.

How Many People Can I Bring in One Car?

The cost of the light show is "by the carload" so there is no limit to the number of people per car.  However, since there are light displays on both sides of the car, it would be best if each person can view the lights from both sides of the vehicle.

Do I Pay By the Person?

No... we charge by the carload.

Can I Buy My Ticket in Advance?

There is no need to buy your ticket in advance since we take cash at the door. NO CREDIT CARDS.

What is the best time to visit the show to avoid crowds?

Monday through Thursday is the best time to avoid the crowds. 

How can I be a sponsor to Lights Under Louisville?


For 2016, we have widened the route so that motor coaches are able to easily drive through our underground holiday light show. We have lowered the cost down to $4.00 per person, and as always, tour operator/driver are no charge. Motor Coaches are given first priority upon arrival and will be sent down our express lane to avoid long waits. Motor Coaches are invited to come between 6PM and 10PM Monday - Friday, and between 5PM and 10PM Saturday/Sunday. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED! Please email for more information
