The Magical Night of Lights continues when the sun sets on Lanier Islands this holiday season. Join us this year as we celebrate the return of a classic family favorite, the 12 Days of Christmas - and the 25th anniversary of the Magical Nights of Lights! Twinkling lights come to life, transforming the landscape as you navigate your car through millions of bulbs that color the Islands. Journey to Santa's Holiday Village, where kids can share their Christmas wishes with the big man himself, and grab a photo memory of their special meeting. While you're here, shop for that special Christmas gift for someone in your circle of friends and family.

Magical Nights of Lights is open daily, November 17, 2017, through January 3, 2018, from 5 to 10 p.m., with admission beginning at 4:30 p.m.
