Feel The Magic

25 Years of Amazing Holiday Lights!

Welcome to the 25th anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights. Like many great traditions, we mixed a little old, with a little new to bring you best light show ever! On this 25th anniversary we’re bringing back the ’12 Days of Christmas’ display. After a two-year hiatus, the 13-display attraction returns better than before. You can sing holiday tunes with your family as you drive pass each sparkling light display. '12 Days of Christmas' joins the long list of much-loved displays such as Santa's Elves at Work, 'the North Pole Express, Jack & the Bean Stalk, Wizard of Oz, 'the Poinsettia Candelabra, the Icicle Tunnel, the Carousel, and so many more! Be on the lookout for the massive ***NEW*** 65-foot Universal Christmas Tree at the clock tower roundabout. It is truly a sight to see!

Holiday Village

Take in all the holiday cheer!

As you drive through the 7-mile light show, just know that your magical night does not stop with the lights. As you wind your way pass dazzling light displays, you'll discover the electric epicenter of Magical Nights of Lights - the Holiday Village. It's here where you visit jolly Old St. Nick in Santa's Workshop, peruse holiday ornaments to trim your Christmas tree or find the perfect gift for that someone special at Bucky’s Gift Shop, roast marshmallows over the roaring fire pit, and climb aboard a classic carnival ride. Continue the tradition at Lanier Islands this holiday season! Carload Tickets are $10.00 off online!
