A Magical Drive-Thru Holiday Experience

November 20-January 2, 6-10 p.m.

We've partnered with Magic of Lights™ to transform Little Elm Park into a Christmas Wonderland! 

This is a drive-thru Christmas light display, fun for the whole family! Pile into the car and experience Magic of Lights™ from the safety and comfort of your vehicle as you wind through the sparkling path.

Magic of Lights™ begins on November 20 and runs until January 2. The park will shut down every day at 5 p.m. during this time. Magic of Lights™ will be closed on December 5 for our Christmas Parade and Annual Tree Lighting and on December 31.

At every turn, the magical route is overflowing with spectacular light displays that bring your favorite holiday themes and characters to life! Get tickets here. You must have a ticket for this event.
