Although some holiday traditions have been canceled this year, there’s still plenty of festive fun to look forward to in Georgia! One of the best ways to get into the holiday spirit is to check out a drive-through lights display where you can view stunning illuminations and be inspired by the magic of the season. Lucky for you, Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens is one of the top light displays in the entire world!
YOU'RE ALL SET!

For 2020, Fantasy in Lights features a brand-new scene and magical field of lights that is almost two football fields long and has a Christmas tree over 10 stories tall. In fact, this is the tallest Christmas tree in the South!
One way to see the lights is to drive through in your own car so that this is an experience for just you and your family. Personal vehicles are assigned a time slot to manage the flow of guests. You can also hop aboard the Jolley Trolley, a popular open-air trolley car as long as you wear a mask.
Families with kids love Fantasy in Lights, especially because tickets include access to the Christmas Village to see Santa. This year, Callaway Gardens has set up a space where kids can meet with Santa from a safe (but just as fun!) distance. Then over at Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, you and your family can learn about the wonderful art of Christmas cookie decorating.
Fantasy in Lights is also a romantic spot to bring a date and enjoy some quality time with someone you love. Your ticket price includes access to the shopping and dining at Christmas Village to make your date night extra fun and delicious.
You can even stay overnight in the beautiful resort accommodations to make a weekend out of it or switch things up with a surprise weeknight getaway. You’ll love the tasty southern cuisine and heated shopping area to stock up on unique gifts for everyone on your shopping list.
Make sure to buy tickets in advance on the Callaway Gardens website because this event has limited capacity. Ticket prices vary based on age and when you visit but generally range from $14.95 to $34.95.
You can have peace of mind knowing that Callaway Gardens is doing its part to keep visitors safe by implementing various COVID-safe protocols, such as temperature checks before entering the trolley and Christmas village, mask requirements, dividers between trolley benches, and creating a designated dining area.
Don’t miss out on this festive experience that runs through January 4th in Pine Mountain!
