Please take care this Christmas Eve

On this Christmas Eve, the busiest night of the display is approaching. Tonight I ask that all visitors take extra care driving in the area and crossing the road as there will be a greater amount of vehicles on the road and pedestrians walking around.

I’d like to also wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

Back for 2023 with a rebuilt mega tree and running all December!

Ryan’s Christmas Lights returned for 2023 tonight, Friday December 1st. Nightly show times are 8:30 to 10:30 pm. You can find the display in Salisbury East, South Australia – check out the directions page for more details.

This year features a newly rebuilt mega tree now using all digital pixel lights for many more possible light patterns.

Jingle Bells is this year’s brand new song. Together with Christmas songs from past years, one play-through of 2023’s show lasts just under 30 minutes. Each of these songs from previous years have been tweaked to make the most of this year’s new lights.

Local brass band Para Hills Brass Band returning to play this Friday

PARA HILLS BRASS BAND once again will visit Ryan’s Christmas Lights. This is scheduled for Friday this week, 23 December, between 8:30 pm and about 9:30 pm, with a 10 minute break in the middle. Here, a number of popular Christmas-themed tunes will be played. In detail, they include:

  • The First Noel
  • Silent Night
  • Joy to the World
  • Good King Wenceslas
  • Jingle Bells
  • Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town
  • Hark the Herald Angels Sing
  • Away in a Manger
  • Deck the Halls
  • We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Afterward, the regular synchronised Christmas light show will start (at around 9:30 pm) and run until the normal finish time of 10:30 pm.

As a reminder, as we get closer to Christmas Day, both foot and vehicle traffic increase. Please take care while driving in the area and crossing the road.

2022 light show? YES – from December first weekend

Ryan’s Christmas Lights returns for 2022 with a small amount of physical changes and also a new song. The changes relate to some new additions of mini trees and miniature leaping arches to the garden. This year’s new song is an upbeat version of Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.

The first show will be December 3rd, and then nightly between 8:30 and 10:30 pm (unless raining).
