Our Living Lights

Our Living Lights We are a Christ-Honoring, Family-Gathering, Joy-giving place where you can come for a candy cane, stay for a song or 7, and leave with a smile on your face and a memory in your heart!

This is the Canfield Family's gift to you! This display is a 45,000 animated light show run by Light-O-Rama broadcasted to your f.m. radio on 89.9 f.m.

Operating as usual


Please come on out and enjoy some contactless Christmas Joy


Due to unknown reasons, our lights will not be on until Tuesday night. We apologize for the inconvenience, thank you for your support.


It seems our lights were off last night and we apologize. I'm working now to see what the problem may be. We'll keep you updated!


Just a small taste 😉


We are up and running!! 5-10 pm every night now until January!! Make sure to stop by and when you do don’t forget to check in and let us know you are here! Happy Thanksgiving!!


After a year off, Our Living Lights are up and running! Please come out and enjoy. If we see you outside you may receive a special treat.


Tomorrow starts the official beginning of OUR LIVING LIGHTS decorating season. By the end, we will have decorated 7 places in Central Illinois. We hope you have the opportunity to enjoy one or more of the displays. Stay tuned for the progress and light up dates! We look forward to seeing you all out and about.


The time has finally arrived! Next Saturday, Our Living Lights will start the decorating season. We will be decorating one place in Macomb, 4 places in Canton, and one place in Farmington. In addition there will be a surprise decorating location coming soon.... So stay tuned.

GOOD NEWS: My personal display will be up and running this year after being dark last season!!!!!!

We look forward to seeing your smiling faces, and as always please check in at Our Living Lights on Facebook when you visit. If we see you, don't be alarmed if we come out to say hi and pass out candy canes.


We are sad to announce that we will not be running our animated light display this year. We have had the opportunity to spread Joy through many other displays this year and are unable to light up our display this year. No worries, we will be back next year!


We apologize for not keeping you up-to-date on our progress this year. We have been busy setting up other shows around the area including a large drive-thru in North Chicago. We are striving to have the display up and running by Monday night as long as the weather cooperates with us. We will be sure to let everyone know if this changes, thank you for your patience.


This year I'll be coordinating and setting up the first of it's kind in the Quad Cities and Grayslake Drive Thru Christmas Animated Light Shows. Tune your cars radios in as you drive through , under, and around this all computerized Christmas Light Show complete with drive thru arches, 20 foot animated trees, 10 foot animated trees, presents, reindeer, snowman, Santa and much much more!

No worries, I'll still be decorating my yard along with the others I already have been doing. Hope to see returning visitors and new faces!!!


Today starts a very busy month. Before November 19 we need to have set up two 1 mile long drive thru Christmas displays (one in Grayslake and one in Davenport), a big display in Macomb, a smaller Display here in Farmington, plus our own display. Let the fun and stress commence! Stay tuned for more updates and don't forget to stop by the weekend after Thanksgiving.


It's official.... WE'RE UP AND RUNNING!!! A few minor adjustments are needed but nothing huge. Please bring the family out and enjoy some living lights. Please remember to check into Our Living Lights on Facebook when you stop.


Everything is hooked up! Thank you again for your patience. Show starts at 4 and runs till 11. Please be sure to check in at Our Living Lights when you stop.


As long as nothing goes majorly wrong we WILL BE up and running tomorrow night, please pray all goes smoothly. Thank you for your patience this year.


Update!!! We're working feverishly to be up and running this Saturday by 4:00pm.If you drive by now you can see the progress we've made. Hope to see you all this Saturday at 4pm.


We are way behind, the lights are not up yet. Please be patient, they will be up as soon as I can. Please stop back here for future updates!


Don't worry, we will be up and running this year! With other decorating commitments and a daughter in college in Kentucky we will be lighting up the first week of December hopefully. Please be patient as we try to get up and going as fast as possible.


Happy Fall! We started dragging everything out and started hanging lights! Light up this year is tentatively planned for Monday night after Thanksgiving. This year we are expanding our front yard display, feel free to admire as you drive by!


Only two more nights left for the 2016 display for Our Living Lights then off to make next year bigger and even more entertaining. Thank you to all who stopped by, we appreciate it.

Happy October! Can you believe it is that time again..... Time to start setting up! With me doing 3 displays this year I'll need to start setting up earlier. This year I'm adding jumping deer to the display. I'll attempt to keep everyone updated as the set up progresses. Hope to see you all again in just over a month!!!
