With a dazzling display of colorful lights, the World Center of Racing has transformed into the largest drive-thru Christmas light show in the Sunshine State. Best of all, you can experience this family-friendly event from the safety and comfort of your car as you drive through the sparkling pathway.
Perfect for those looking to enjoy a festive atmosphere while social distancing, the magical event runs every day until January 2nd, 2021. Kids will love the themed displays, which include the Enchanting Tunnel of Lights, 12 Days of Christmas, 200-foot Candy Cane Lane and Snowflake Forest, as well as Ornament Passing and Joy to the World.
Want to drive through twice? Visit on Double Drive Wednesdays (excluding December 23rd) for a chance to experience the special event two times for the price of one ticket.
If you want to avoid the crowds, Daytona International Speedway recommends that you plan a visit during the week. This way you can bypass the long wait times typically experienced on peak days such as Saturday nights.
Want a souvenir of your visit to the Magic of Lights? Opt for the standard plus photo option to receive 5 photos of you and your family, plus a fun moving video for $5. If you’re not in the mood to wait, you can also add a Dash Pass and skip the general admission line.
Families can feel good about their visit to this holiday wonderland, as a portion of its proceeds benefits the AdventHealth Foundation in Volusia and Flagler counties.
