The Phifer home is one of the best-known houses in the area. Just follow the trail of buses and limos which have been visiting the Phifer home for over 40 years for Tacky Lights.

Rose Phifer, known as the "mother of holiday lights" in Richmond, passed away in the spring of 2017, but her children are keeping both houses lit in her memory.

Her son, Bobby, and his wife Bobbie live next door at 9604 Asbury Court. Both houses have close to a million and a half lights -- one of the brightest and biggest displays on the Tacky Lights list.

The rain has slowed them down this year, but they will light up both houses at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving and run through Jan. 2.

Hours: 5:15-10 p.m. Sundays-Thursdays and 5:15 p.m.-midnight Fridays-Saturdays


Two of the best-known and best displays on the Tacky Light tour: 9604 & 9606 Asbury Court.
