The lights will be turning on at the Holiday Lights at the Beach, bringing joy and wonder to Hampton Roads this holiday season!  Take a shiny journey into nautical, holiday, and adventure lands – all along the beautiful Virginia Beach boardwalk.  Festive fish, musical crabs, and hard-working elves – all in bright, colored lights against the clear night-time sky, are the stars of The Holiday Lights at the Beach.  They are joined by Santa, elves, and a 40-foot tall Christmas tree erected on the beach and in the beautiful parks along the Virginia Beach boardwalk.

This intimate holiday light display presents fish swimming above your car, a giant castle, snow globes, and spectacular RGB light tunnels to drive through.  We’ve hand-picked some of our most popular displays to feature in this “boutique” family-friendly experience.

25,000 families a year make this unique light show a part of their holiday celebration!  This “Fanta-Sea” of lights is sure to dazzle and amaze holiday travelers visiting Virginia Beach.  Drivers will be able to tune their car radio to a frequency to hear holiday music along the BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights Merry Mile, making it easy to see AND hear why this event has been named one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top 20 November Events” and the American Bus Association's "Top 100 Events in North America for 2011!"
