2022 “Let it Glow” Drive-Thru and Walk-Thru
Nov 11th, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - Dec 30th, 2022 @ 9:00 pm
There’s nothing quite like Discovery Park of America during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s. The popular “Let It Glow” Drive-Thru and Walk-Thru light shows returns Nov. 11 through Dec. 30, 2022.
The 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 “Let It Glow” Walk-Thru will take place on the north side of the park, which will once again be transformed into the “North Pole.” Grab a snack and a drink and take a stroll through the Japanese Garden, European Garden and Mill Ridge, and enjoy the magic of Christmas.
At Mill Ridge, guests can shop for local handmade gifts for sale, hangout with Rudolph in his barn, write a letter to Santa and, new this year, a large display of more than 150 nutcrackers on loan from Edith Adcock of Martin, Tennessee. Adcock received her first nutcracker as a gift for her 16th birthday and has been collecting them for more than 45 years.
Santa Claus will be at Mill Ridge on Friday and Saturday nights from 5 to 9 p.m.
Both the “Let it Glow” Drive-Thru and Walk-Thru are open 5-9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 11-Friday, Dec. 30, 2022 and closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
