“Are you bored and looking for something safe to do during the holidays? Are you frustrated with Covid?

Then you might like going to see the lights in Warm Beach. Go get your favorite beverage and come along to see the colorful lights at Warm Beach. The ginormous display of christmas lights can remind you of the holidays and you’ll get to see Santa there. You can give Santa your Christmas list there. You can see the lights in the comfort of your pajamas and for safety you can stay in your car. You can see lights that are shaped like mountains, trees made out of Christmas lights and a model train rolling around making choo choo sounds while Christmas music plays in the background. Don’t be nervous because everybody wears masks and you’ll stay in your car. Your tickets are scanned through your window and you get to choose your time. So if you’re bored and frustrated, then you can look on the bright side and get interested in the lights at Warm Beach.”
