Starting December 1, 2010 Our annual magical holiday show features computer controlled lights set to music in St. Helens, Oregon. We started our nightly display in 2010 and each year we add new elements and many more lights. We design, program and install everything you see. The music accompanying the light show is broadcast on 96.7 FM. either on your car stereo or other listening device. Please visit our web site for more information. http://sthelensxmaslights.com/ This is a non-profit light display produced by a private family in St. Helens, Oregon.

Hello Everyone,

If you want to take a quarantine break, come by and see the "Corona Lights". "Corona Lights" is really a "Light Movement" for people with Christmas displays to bring hope, spread cheer and offer some daily variety in these interesting times. (I like the term "Hope Lights" better, what do you think?)

The lights are officially activated! It is a static display only. However, I am playing a variety of songs on the FM Channel to make you smile, dance and enjoy the moment. Make sure to tune into 87.9 on your car radio. It will run from 8-10:00.

I've partnered with the Columbia Pacific Food Bank during the holidays and this is no exception. If you are moved to, please see their donation site that uses PayPal https://bit.ly/2yAaO2M

Remember, if you get out and dance, be in your own car bubble. You can stay a short while but please mindful of others and move along after a few songs. The same Christmas rules apply, don't go in the yard, no parking on grass, driveways, no trash etc. My neighbors are so gracious so please be respectful.

Here's a little secret - there are 12 teddy bears in the display but are only visible during the day. Look closely as you walk or drive by!!

Blessings to you all.

When the lights are dancing there is nothing more heartwarming than to hear little kids yelling, "This is sooo cool!!" That comment makes it ALL worth it. May the light show reignite your child-like spark of Christmas magic.

Another year is upon us and the set up is almost done - Santa's elves have been pretty busy! The show always starts on Dec 1st and runs to the 31st.

The Columbia Pacific Food Bank barrel is in place and ready to go. CPFB is a regional food bank for Columbia County which serves 24 independent hunger relief agencies including five emergency food pantries throughout the county.

So from St. Helens Christmas Lights I can officially say..Merry Christmas!!

How many of you remember the little mechanical elves display and lights in Columbia City from years ago?

After seeing the Christmas ships, our family went to Columbia City to see the elves. That wonderful display was part of our Christmas tradition. Even now, those memories hold a special place in my heart.

It has always been a dream to include those elves in the display - to bring back a tradition that our family loved would be incredible.

Does anyone know what happened to the Columbia City elves? Did they return to the North Pole?

It is still a dream…

12/03/2018

The excitement is in the air. Thank you for your donations!!! Last year there were about two barrels full of food that was donated. We are off to a great start!

Christmas Ships Parade

Come on out and enjoy the Spirit of Christmas by watching the amazing Christmas Ships Parade. It will be cold so bundle up!

Dec 9th. Tonight, we have a combined fleet route (no parade on the Willamette). At 6PM, the combined fleet assembles at the St. Helens City Docks and heads downriver to Columbia City, and weather/river conditions permitting crosses to the WA side and the RV Park, then returns to St. Helens City Docks.

Once we're back in St. Helens, many of our boats will participate in a brief tribute parade honoring our past President, Ron Bielenberg. Ron was a career firefighter who lost his battle with cancer in September. His cancer was attributed to his firefighting career. In addition to honoring Ron, we'd like to pay tribute to all fallen firefighters and the families left behind.

Ships remain overnight at St. Helens City Docks and leave Sunday for the trip up Multnomah Channel. Route details for each parade can be found here:
