First came animatronic dinosaurs; next, glowing reindeer! Following the success of the Jurassic Quest drive-thru experience this summer, Foxborough's Gillette Stadium will host Magic of Lights, a holiday-themed drive thru featuring hundreds of thousands of LED lights. From November 13, 2020 through January 2, 2021, Boston families can ride through and past a sparkling display featuring Christmas scenes and music—all in the safety of their own cars.

Learn more about Magic of Lights—including newly updated ticket information—here, and keep tabs on our Boston events calendar for other exciting area happenings this fall, winter, and beyond.

Scenes that cars will drive past include 'Twas the Night Before Christmas" and "Winter Wonderland."

What To Expect at Magic of Lights 

Developed by FunGuys Events, Magic of Lights has run in other cities in years past, but 2020 marks the first time the attraction will come to the Boston area. It's certainly good timing: With the Holiday Pops on hiatus, the Boston Ballet Nutcracker going virtual, and other local holiday traditions uncertain to happen, families are looking for fun, but safe ways to celebrate the holidays.


The Magic of Lights drive-thru will be a mile long in total, and feature tunnels of LED lights and digital animations set to music. Scenes include "12 Days of Christmas", "Winter Wonderland", "'Twas the Night Before Christmas", and new this year, a "Blizzard Tunnel."


How To Get Tickets to Magic of Lights 

A Magic of Lights ticket pre-sale for select individuals associated with Gillette Stadium—like Patriots season ticket holders—was so successful that admission for the general public was pushed back from October 16 to the first week of November to accommodate for additional planning. We will update this post when we learn of the exact date and time when tickets go on sale, but you can also check the Magic of Lights Foxborough information page often for updates.

Though costs could change with demand, regular ticket prices were initially announced to be $35 per car.  It's certainly cheaper than a trip to Gillette to see the Pats play—and sure to be a treat in a holiday season where live, in-person entertainment might be hard to come by.
