This Drive-Through Light Show Is Festive & COVID Safe

Bright Nights At Forest Park has been delighting visitors with three-miles of sparkling holiday displays for more than 25 years! Little did they know their business model would turn out to be just what we needed to round out 2020.

As the largest drive-through light display in New England, this Springfield destination is completely COVID-safe because you never have to leave your vehicle!

Bright Nights At Forest Park boasts more than 675,000 colorful Christmas lights arranged in tunnels and tableaus to enchant holiday revelers of all ages.

The attraction is a unique public/private collaboration between the City of Springfield’s Department of Parks, Buildings & Recreation Management, and the Spirit of Springfield, a private non-profit organization.

Since 1995, they have welcomed more than 6 million visitors. If you were to line up all the cars that have visited Bright Nights, they would extend all the way to California!

So gather the family, crank up the holiday tunes, and prepare for the most festive three mile drive in Massachusetts!

Cruise through Seuss Land where beloved characters created right here in MA dance and cavort with their one-of-a-kind Christmas toys and gadgets.

Classic Toy Land scenes, a Victorian Village, and Peter Pan's Never Never Land will bring you back to the Christmases of your childhood.

There is even a traditional nativity scene.

And, of course, don't miss Santa's North Pole Village!

Bright Nights at Forest Park opens for its 26th season on November 25th and runs through January 6th.

Tickets must be purchased in advance online or at Big Y World Class Market. Bright Nights will have COVID-19 safety protocols in place and some attractions such as the carriage rides will be closed to ensure a safe, drive-through only experience.

Offering $10 Tuesdays and special nights honoring frontline workers, military and emergency responders, this holiday attraction has something for everyone!
