Light up your holidays with the award-winning Celebration in Lights, a two-mile drive-through of spectacular animated scenes set in Newport News Park. Over 750,000 lights illuminate the beauty of Newport News Park’s forests, fields and ponds in this, Virginia’s first and longest running drive-through light event. View multi-colored snowflakes, leaping reindeer, whimsical toys and forest animals portrayed in a kaleidoscope of dazzling color. Over 200 displays, including 70 animated displays, are spread throughout a dozen theme areas, including “Winter Wonderland,” “Forest Friends,” “Battle of the Ironclads,” “Santa’s Enchanted Kingdom” and “Old Man Winter.” In celebration of its 20th year, the event will add a new 300’ long animated tunnel of lights creating the effect of falling snow and a new 22’ tree near the main entrance. On each Friday night, the first 500 vehicles will receive a promotional give-a-way gift (give-a-way items vary, distribution while supplies last each Friday). The event will be open each evening, 5:30 - 10:00 p.m. through New Year’s (January 1, 2013) with the exception of December 31 when it will close at 9:00 p.m. due to the “Lights Out 5K” Race. Newport News Park is located at exit 250B from I-64, minutes from Colonial Williamsburg and all Newport News attractions. A "100 Miles of Lights" signature event.
Admission Fee: $10/car; $60/bus
