Fab Forties Christmas Lights

Looking for Christmas lights in East Sacramento? Our little slice of the city is famous for its collection of Christmas light displays each year. The entire neighborhood transforms into a snowless winter wonderland, guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit. 

Here’s where to see Christmas lights in East Sacramento and other things to make your trip complete.

Where to See Christmas Lights in Sacramento

Most of the Christmas magic takes place between 38th and 47th Streets, as well as J Street and Folsom Boulevard. It’s earned the nickname The Fab 40s because of its location. Everything from houses to trees to buildings and more are decked out in their best. The neighborhood is pretty walkable, so bring along a hot drink to sip as you stroll. 

Eat at Allora

Complement the evening with a dinner at Allora, one of the neighborhood’s best Italian restaurants. Specializing in classic recipes made with local ingredients, Allora offers pre-fixe three-, four-, or five-course dining experiences. If the weather permits, enjoy dining on the outdoor patio before you start your walk through Christmastown.

Allora requires advanced reservations, but it’s well worth the extra bit of planning to include it in your evening.

Take a Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride

Add even more magic to your experience with a horse-drawn carriage ride through East Sacramento. You can soak in the sights of The Fab 40s Christmas lights while you enjoy dessert-to-go or just a little time to rest and relax. 

Top Hand Ranch offers horse-drawn carriage rides specifically for The Fab 40s Christmas lights. Reservations are highly recommended for these one-hour-long rides.
