Rocklin is full of festive light shows and neighborhoods with Christmas décor galore, turning the city into a winter wonderland. For years residents throughout the area have made the trek to Pebble Creek Drive and Strand Road in Rocklin for a tour through the holiday lights and cartoon cutouts. The two streets circle behind Sunset Boulevard and are filled with candy canes, icicle lights, a garage door wrapped as a gift, a reindeer peeking out of a second-story window and white tarps on the grass to give the illusion of snow. One house, with the yard full of “Alice in Wonderland” characters, neighbors another house with a “The Jungle Book” theme, across the street from “Cars” cutouts. Almost every house on these streets is lined with lights and decorated for the season. Along Taft Drive at the crossing of Turnstone Way, yards are full of blow-up Santas, snowmen and snowwomen, penguins and one house is designed to look like a mini Christmas tree lot. At 2400 Par Place in Rocklin, off Sunset Boulevard, the front grass is covered with yard art including painted cutouts of Santa, snowmen, reindeer and elves designed by Ivy’s Wood Creations.
