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

Nov 12th @ 5:00 pm - Dec 31st @ 9:00 pm

Sponsored by McDonald’s.

The popular “Let It Glow” drive-thru light show returns Nov. 12 through Dec. 31 2021, with a new component where guests can walk-thru a light show on part of the grounds.

The walk-through is sponsored by ATA .


  • The Christmas Elves (grounds crew) start putting up lights when it’s still hot outside. It takes about two months to make sure all the lights and displays are up.
  • Listen to the last 10 minutes of our podcast on “Reelfoot Forward” to hear John Watkins talk about what it takes to get the “Let It Glow” light show up and ready just in time for Christmas!
