In need of some holiday spirit? Check out these holiday light displays throughout Southern California!
The holiday season is always about spending time with family. Something my family would always do is visit my aunt, uncle, and cousins in South Torrance on Christmas Eve. Since they live on Candy Cane Lane, we would bundle up and hit the streets with our dogs, hot toddies in hand, enjoying the elaborately decorated houses.
There’s no doubt that the holidays are looking a lot different this year, and walking the crowded streets is no longer an option. Luckily, there are many drive-through options for viewing lights. Here is a list of pay-to-see and free light displays throughout Southern California.
What better way to kick off the list than with our 2020 World Series Champions! The Los Angeles Dodgers are hosting a drive-thru Holiday Festival right at Dodger Stadium! Tickets are $55 per car with a maximum of eight people per car and must be purchased online. This festival is running now through January 3, 2021. Tickets can be purchased here.
Drive on an actual NASCAR racetrack (at a safe speed) through a light display of Santa’s village, giant holiday snacks, and a Christmas campout, where RVs are parked and decorated with holiday cheer. Tickets are $59 per car with a maximum of eight people per car and must be purchased online. This event is happening now through January 10, 2021. Tickets can be purchased here.
Do you have kids? The Elf on the Shelf’s Magical Holiday Journey might be the light display for you! Help the elves gather Christmas spirit as you drive through larger than life displays of toy-repair workshops and gingerbread villages. Tickets start at $24.95 per person, with a minimum of two people and maximum of eight people per car and must be purchased online. Tickets are available now through January 3, 2021 and can be purchased here.
Check out this week’s article for a sneak peek of Hikari - A Festival of Lights at Tanaka Farms! Tickets start at $49 per car, maximum of 8 people per car. Tickets available now through January 10, 2021. Book tickets here!
In the Pasadena area? Christmas Tree Lane on East Mariposa Street and Santa Rosa Avenue and Upper Hastings Ranch off of Sierra Madre Blvd and Hastings Ranch Drive are two free light attractions on this list. Drive down the street to see the houses decorated in the holiday spirit and rows of trees lined with lights.
More commonly known as Candy Cane Lane, the Sleepy Hollow Christmas Lights is known as one of the largest free light displays in Southern California. The main display streets are Doris Way, Sharynne Lane, Reese Road, Carol Drive, and Linda Drive. This year there are no stopping signs all along the street, so stay in your car and drive through to experience the lights!
