DEL MAR — The holiday season is just around the corner and Santa’s helpers are hard at work as they prepare for the 14th annual Holiday of Lights at the Del Mar Fairgrounds starting Thanksgiving night.
Visitors will have the opportunity to kick off the holidays by taking a drive around the spectacular 1.5-mile, drive-through light show which is designed to get patrons in the spirit of the season.
Patrons drive their vehicles along the world-famous Del Mar Racetrack to view the festive holiday displays from the comfort of their cars. Featuring more than 400 lighted, animated scenes, the Holiday of Lights is the largest animated drive-through attraction on the west coast.
Also, the elves at the Holiday of Lights are teaming up with Toys for Tots this holiday season for a special toy drive to be held Wednesday, December 10. Every vehicle donating a new, unwrapped toy will receive a $2 discount on their Holiday of Lights admission.
Holiday of Lights will be open from Thursday, November 27, through Sunday, January 4, Sundays through Thursdays 5:30 to 10 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays 5:30 to 11 p.m.
