CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- If you are looking to check out some holiday decorations around the Chippewa Valley, there are plenty of homes and large light displays to see.

If you are looking for houses, there is a large light show in the 2700 block of Rudolph Road in Eau Claire. It got looks of looks on Christmas Eve as people passed by.

It is right off Claremont Avenue so you will not have to go far off the main drag.

But you will have to catch it quick; there is not a lot of space to stop.

Down the road, a home on Fear Street in Eau Claire brings out a lot of blues and truly makes you feel like you are in a winter wonderland.

Altoona City Park is glowing bright this holiday season. It is located off 10 1/2 Street West in Altoona and you will be able to walk the sidewalks and get an up-close look at all the lights.

And then there is Irvine Park.

Steve and Carrie Lahr are regulars every year. They prefer to hoof it rather than drive.

"It's quiet, peaceful, the snow is starting to come down, it's just enjoyable," Steve said.

Samuel Castonguay and his family meanwhile are seeing it for the first time. They just moved here to Wisconsin from Oregon. His daughter gave it high marks.

"Everything was cool," she said.

It is safe to say they have found a new family tradition.

"I think next year we'll come park and walk through once we get warmer clothes and acclimated we'll walk through," he added.
