It’s the end of June and the holiday season is only five months away. If you are a shopping mall, plaza, or you manufacture and install holiday décor it is time to start planning for the holiday season. Holiday decorations are an important part of the shopping experience. Shoppers need to be enticed in order to put their computers down, get in their cars and drive to the mall or shopping center.
The following is a list of some the best light shows in the U.S. to help you become inspired.
Faneuil Hall Marketplace – Boston, MA
Blink! is a state-of-the-art light and sound show set to the music of the Holiday Pops. The lights dance seamlessly to the music through every inch of Faneuil Hall to create a spectacle not to be missed. The entire six week show will use the same amount of electricity as an average American household uses in a month. It runs every night from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. through January 5.
Mall of America– Bloomington, MN
The largest mall in the U.S. features a life sized ginger bread house.
Oglebay Festival of Lights – Wheeling, WV

Holiday Festival of Lights – Lake Lanier, GA
The Magical Nights of Lights holiday celebration is known as the world’s largest animated light extravaganza. This show rekindles an old tradition at Lake Lanier Island Resort.
Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland – West Knoxville and Bristol, Tennessee
