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

Celebrate the joy of the 2023 holiday season with your family and put a twinkle in their eye, all from the cozy comfort of your car. You can choose from five spectacular drive-through light displays up and down New Jersey (or visit them all!) to enjoy a luminous holiday tradition. Let the festive times roll!

North Jersey

The 10th Annual Skylands Stadium Light Show & Christmas Village in Augusta is sure to be a huge hit with your family, featuring over 2 million lights along a one-mile route. Advance tickets for the event taking place from November 22 through December 30, 2023, are available for purchase online – just hit the BUY TICKETS button on the website.

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 22, 2023, through December 29, 2023.

Central Jersey

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 from November 24, 2023, through December 31, 2023, with tickets available for purchase online.

South 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 from November 17 through December 30, 2023. Tickets are available at the gate or at a discount online.

Excitement continues to build at the Holiday Drive-Thru Light Show at Diggerland USA in West Berlin. Instead of riding in a backhoe, you and your family will roll along in your car – and be sure to tune in to commercial-free holiday music on a dedicated radio channel. Tickets for events from November 17, 2023, through January 1, 2024, are available at the gate, but we recommend pre-purchasing online for priority admission.

Bonus Brilliance: At the most wonderful time of the year, Victorian Cape May becomes even more charming and luminous. Check out Christmas in Cape May for up-to-the-minute details.
