Festival of Lights

This year, one of our favorite Lowcountry traditions will be a bit different. In order to enforce social distancing, the 2020 Holiday Festival of Lights experience will take place from the comfort of your own vehicle. Starting November 13 and running through the end of the year, the driving tour is open from 5:30-10:00 PM nightly, and features a variety of decorations and displays.

Holiday music and park information is available by tuning into 1620 AM on your radio. To help maintain social distancing, guests are asked to stay in their vehicles unless accessing the restroom. For your convenience, concessions are available for purchase from your vehicle. Enjoy this specially curated car experience as you pass millions of twinkling lights and catch magical surprises along the way!
