Iowa is known for its holiday lights, with many great drive-through shows around the state. However, there’s something uniquely charming about a small town that goes all-out to celebrate the season, and no town does it like Waverly. This small town in central Iowa has become known for its unique holiday light display in Iowa that takes over a suburban neighborhood every year. Making it even more impressive, this entire display is put together by volunteers in the neighborhood to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This neighborhood event is a little different every year, and there’s no better way to celebrate the holiday season in Iowa than to take a stroll down Waverly’s main street – completely transformed into a land of Christmas magic.
