After checking out that display, head north to Fargo and stop by Lindenwood Park

Next you'll be headed even further north - but not quite to Santa's place - and make a stop in Grand Forks.
The Lions Clubs of Grand Forks takes over Lincoln Park and transforms it into a Christmas wonderland. With many bright and colorful displays, the whole family can enjoy this trip.
The next stop is Oak Park in Minot for another fantastic park lights display that anyone can drive through and appreciate.
These kind of light displays work perfectly for a road trip because you never have to leave your car! Enjoy this Christmas display at Oak Park without having to go into the chill outside your car.
And for our last stop, a totally decked out house in Minot that has made a name for itself with incredible displays.
You'll easily be amazed at this insane display. The Olson residence has taken Christmas decorating to an extreme with an amazing amount of lights and set ups. The family welcomes everyone to stop by and see it - and it's worth the visit! It'll certainly get you into the Christmas spirit after you see the impressive home.
Can’t get out to see the lights yourself? The lights might just be coming to you in the form of an epic holiday train that’s traveling through a handful of North Dakota towns.
