Displays of Christmas cheer can be seen through many parts of Pahrump. Check photo captions for street names of where to see the gleaming lights of Pahrump. This is not a comprehensive list of all the homes in Pahrump putting lights on display.

Bryan and Dusty Schoening, who have both lived in Pahrump for the last 16 years, have their Christmas display up for viewing on the 2800 block of Sunset Street near Bell Vista Avenue and Barney Street. The lights and display are on from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

“We enjoy the lights spread that the paper used to do every year, and our display was almost always included because it is so unusual,” the Schoenings said in an email. “We are happy to see you are bringing the lights list back.”
