2021 Let It Glow Light Show Drive-Thru and Walk-Thru

Nov 12th @ 5:00 pm - Dec 30th @ 9:00 pm

Need to add a little holiday magic to your schedule? The popular “Let It Glow” drive-thru light show returns Nov. 12 through Dec. 30 2021, with a new component where guests can walk-thru a light show on part of the grounds.

Opening night on Friday, Nov. 12, 2021, will include a kick-off ceremony at 6:00 p.m. followed by a performance of holiday favorites by internationally acclaimed soprano Sabrina Warren and an ensemble from the Jackson Symphony. The event will be free for Discovery park members and a $5 admission for non-members.

The popular drive-thru light show allows cars to slowly drive around the 50-acre heritage park as they experience more than a million twinkling lights synced to the beats of popular Christmas songs. Guests get a unique look at a Titan Missile, the outside of the 199-foot-tall Discovery Center, a settlement of log cabins and more, all decorated for the holidays.

The Japanese Garden, European Garden and Mill Ridge will all be transformed into a glowing winter wonderland with plenty of opportunities for taking photographs throughout the decorated grounds.

Once guests arrive at Mill Ridge, they will find food and beverages, such as hot chocolate, for sale, a shop that includes local hand-made gifts, a stage for those who want to perform their favorite Christmas carols and a lot of holiday surprises to explore.

Both the “Let it Glow” drive-thru and walk-thru are open 5-9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12-Thursday, Dec. 30, 2021 and closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Admission to the drive-thru is $10 per vehicle, $25 for 15-passenger vans and $50 for school buses/charter buses. For those who enjoy taking their vehicle through multiple times during the holiday season, a discount card is available for $100 that allows for admission 11 times.

Admission to the “Let it Glow” walk-thru is $5 per guest, and ages 3 and under are admitted free. A family discount card is available that provides admission for 12 different guests or the same guests multiple times up to 12 visits for $50.

The “Let It Glow” drive-thru light show is sponsored by McDonald’s, and the walk-thru is sponsored by ATA.
