The Christmas spirit is alive and well in Boulder City as shown with its yearly holiday parade and programs. It’s also shown through the twinkling Christmas lights many residents showcase outside their homes.
Here is a list of some of the best:
■ 1525 Fifth St.
This house is synonymous with Christmas lights in Boulder City. Homeowners Dale Ryan and Dyanah Musgrave spend months setting up their display that includes an animated Ferris wheel, ski lift and roller coaster along with thousands of other dancing, twinkling lights.
It’s such a big display that each year Santa and Mrs. Claus and Jingle Cat are there when the lights are officially turned on for the season.

This neighborhood includes several light displays that include Minions, Christmas trees and a Nativity scene.
