‘Let It Glow’ Light Show 2020

Discovery Park is strictly following all recommended health and safety guidelines for guests and employees.

Are you looking for something fun to get into the Christmas spirit this year? Discovery Park of America’s “Let It Glow” light show is open Nov. 13 – Dec. 30, 2020 from 5-9 p.m. It is only $10 per car to drive through over one million dazzling and twinkling lights. It is $25 for 15-passenger vans and $50 for school buses/charter buses.


  • Did you know that the Discovery Park light show has over 30 miles of lights within the display? That’s a lot of lights!
  • 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!
  • Perfect outing for social distancing and getting in the spirit of Christmas

Open Nov. 13 – Dec. 30, 2020
