Event Description

NEW DISPLAYS for 2011! A Winter Wonderland filled with snowglobes! Festive fish, jumping dolphins, frolicking porpoises – all in bright, colored lights against the clear night-time sky, are the stars of McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach, a nautical and holiday-themed light display at the Virginia Beach oceanfront!  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.

It’s the only time of the year that cars get to drive right on the boardwalk - for over 30 blocks!  30,000 vehicles a year make the trek through this holiday wonderland.  This “Fanta-Sea” of lights is sure to dazzle and amaze holiday travelers visiting Virginia Beach.  Hotels create special packages that include free tickets to the light show.  New displays are added each year so it’s never the same show twice!  One of the highlights is the giant “12 Days of Christmas” display, where some fixtures stand 20 and 30 feet high! 

A free CD of holiday music is provided to each vehicle entering McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach, 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!"
