Well as the name applies, it is tour of houses and locations throughout the greater Richmond metropolitan area that display exuberant Christmas decorations and Christmas lights. When we say exuberant we mean all out, go for broke, monumental power bills and hundreds of thousands of Christmas light bulbs twinkling in the Richmond, Va night in the awe and amazement of neighbors, friends, and those that participate in the Richmond Tacky Lights Tour.

For those of you not in Richmond Virginia here are two videos from past years to get a better perspective and to share in our Richmond Christmas Tradition.
