Sparkling & Safe: Drive-Through Light Displays for the Holiday Season

Warm & Bright: Drive-Through Light Displays for the Holiday Season

Celebrate the joy of the 2022 holiday season with your family and put a twinkle in their eye, all from the cozy comfort of your car. You can choose from seven spectacular drive-through light displays across New Jersey (or visit them all!) to enjoy a luminous holiday tradition. Let the festive times roll!

Northern New Jersey

The Skylands Stadium Light Show & Christmas Village in Augusta is sure to be a huge hit with your family, and not just because of its over 2 million lights. A portion of the one-mile route is directly on the ballfield! Advance tickets for the event taking place from November 23 through December 30, 2022, are only available for purchase online.

A harvest of twinkling illumination that winds through 32 acres awaits your family in the Orchard of Lights at Demarest Farms in Hillsdale. Tickets are exclusively available in advance online. Don’t miss out on the fun, November 23, 2022, through January 1, 2023.

One of Santa’s reindeer is even getting in on the act! Jump into your own “sleigh” and head to Dasher’s Lightshow, A Christmas Drive Thru in Newark, by December 31, 2022. Admission must be purchased online—you can even upgrade or bundle your experience with some flashy merchandise.

Central New Jersey

Concertgoers are used to experiencing musical magic at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, but now you can bask in its Magic of Lights nightly November 18 through December 30, 2022. Tickets are available at the gate or at a discount online.

At dazzling Winter WonderLights at the Middlesex County Fairgrounds in East Brunswick, you’ll drive past more than 1.5 million twinkling lights—with displays animated to music—along a half-mile-long course. The park is open November 25, 2022, through January 1, 2023, with tickets available for purchase online.

Southern New Jersey

Brighten your night with glittering, larger-than-life displays in perfect synchronization to music played through your radio. The Holiday Light Show at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro follows a route more than one mile long and runs November 18 through December 31, 2022. Tickets are available online or at the door on select dates.

Excitement continues to build at the Holidig Drive Thru Light Show at Diggerland USA in West Berlin. Instead of riding in a backhoe, you and your family will roll through a one-mile track in your car—and be sure to tune in to commercial-free holiday music on a dedicated radio channel. Tickets for events November 16, 2022, through January 1, 2023, are available at the gate, but we recommend pre-purchasing online for priority admission.
