Orlando Holiday Lights
Holiday lighting experiences that will blow you away! Beautiful Custom Home Displays and Elegant Commercial Installations
Eric Johannessen, Creative Director/Owner of "Head Elf" and "Creative Director", loves Christmas, his family and creating memories for a lifetime. Because he wanted to create lifetime memories for his young children, he started decorating his home in Winter Park for Christmas starting in 2011. Prompted by his desire to go bigger and bigger each year, his home decorations blew up into a display so big and bright that in 2016 it went national and aired on ABC's, "The Great Christmas Light Fight". Today Eric and his family host over 250,000 visitors to his home each season, making it one of the biggest and best light displays in Central Florida.
It was only natural to bring his passion for Christmas light displays to the community. Johannessen Lights began as a charitable home display and has grown to include hundreds of homes, HOAs, businesses, and communities in Central Florida.
Eric Johannessen and his design team are not your ordinary holiday light installers. They are passionate about creating enchanting and awe-inspiring holiday lighting installations. Demanding only the best, brightest and most creative products available, Johannessen Lights transforms the everyday into extraordinary winter wonderlands.
