5 Must See Light Displays at The Lights of Christmas

The Lights of Christmas Festival opens this year the day after Thanksgiving, November 29th! Bring the whole family and check out the incredible lights displays, yummy food, exceptional live entertainment, and so much more! Here is our top 5 must see light display list.

  1. Canopy of Lights
    The Canopy of Lights will take your breath away! Walk under the beautiful lights and immerse yourself in this Christmas wonderland. Located in the Starlight area, this new display will cascade from the highest star in the entire festival on the peak of Cedar Lodge.
  2. Bayside Wharf Facade
    This beautiful piece of artwork was hand painted by local artist Rick Spears. Which was no small feat, considering it’s 8 feet tall and 100 feet wide! This charming new display is reminiscent of a harbor-side boardwalk in Maine. We’ll be sure to sea you there! Wink
  3. Fireball Tree
    Do you want the perfect selfie moment? Stop by the Fireball Tree and take a quick snap! Don’t forget to add the hashtag #WarmBeachLights when posting on social media so we can check out your Hollywood moment!
  4. Larger-than-life Nativity
    Whether you’re religious or not, the nativity scene is a great place to reflect on the past year and the joy of the holidays. This simple and meaningful display is a perfect place to start or end your experience at The Lights of Christmas as it is located near the main entrance of the event.
  5. Joyland Tunnel
    One of the most iconic light displays in the entire festival! Perfect for group and family photos, selfies, and sometimes even proposals! This display surrounds the path into the Joyland area, so you can enjoy it while on your way to try a sweet treat at the new Mrs. Claus’ Bakeshop.
