Thoroughbred Christmas Lights 2017 in Rancho Cucamonga “A Christmas Spectacle”
A Christmas Spectacle
This weekend I visited the lovely neighborhood of Thoroughbred located in Rancho Cucamonga. Known for their elaborate displays during the winter holiday this neighborhood is known quite well around the area. This tradition in the neighborhood of Rancho Cucamonga has had a reputation of being consistent for over two decades and does not show any signs of stopping now, with thousands of people visiting from all over Southern California every weekend. There are many stories as to how this tradition began from stories of two neighbors competing who has the best Christmas decoration, to the city of rancho informing new buyers they have to set up an elaborate display, and some even say Santas workshop is hidden in the hills of Alta Loma. So please I am positive you will not be disappointed with the display. It starts from the 1st week of December and ends on the 24th Christmas Eve.
What You Can Expect to See
You can expect to see lights! Lots and lots of lights! So much that I would not be surprised if all of Rancho Cucamonga’s power would be rerouted to here. There is a house for every type of theme from Christmas movies such as The Grinch, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Other like to support their sports teams all over their decorations and some think outside the box and like to keep the summertime alive during the winter season. This video below gives you a short little summary of what to expect from the neighborhood.

Since I came all the way from Jurupa Valley, I can tell you its worth the drive and the traffic.
There is no specific address to get to Thoroughbred since its a street but this is the address given to google to help you get there. 5485 Sapphire St, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91701.
But once you get close to Thoroughbred you will notice the big cluster of traffic to get up there.
unfortunately, walk thru traffic will not be allowed starting December 15th. You will only be able to enjoy watching in the comfort of your vehicle. In this video, Deputy Sheriff Jacob Bailey will explain more about these changes.
