North Myrtle Beach takes decking the halls to a whole new level!  Taking place November 20-December 30, 2023 at the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex, the Great Christmas Light Show lights up the night with a nearly 2 mile drive through light show. Featuring over 2 million lights and 500 displays, this holiday tradition is a must see on your visit to North Myrtle Beach. Included in the displays are 30 animated figures and holiday scenes that come to life with the help of some Christmas magic, as well as rockin' musical section synced to the sounds of the season!

The holly jolly fun doesn't stop there. After the light show visit Santa's Village, home to hot chocolate, s'mores, photo ops, and of course - the big man himself! Hop aboard the Santa Express Train Ride where you can experience an up-close look at the lights and then make your way through the Christ-maze! Who knows, you may even see a reindeer at the petting zoo! The Great Christmas Light Show is sure to put you in the holiday spirit and make even the greenest Grinches in your group smile.
