It’s that time of year again! The Great Christmas Light Show has returned to the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex, and Brookgreen Gardens celebrates the season with Nights Of A Thousand Candles. That means NOW is the perfect time to visit the Myrtle Beach area, and get into the holiday spirit!

The Great Christmas Light Show

This 1.5 mile drive-through light show contains more than 400 custom made displays, some of which are up to 70 feet tall! About two million lights, and 14 animated figures, set the scene. After driving through the spectacular show, guests can visit Santa’s Village to enjoy s’mores and hot chocolate. You can also get a close look at the lights by riding the Santa Express Train Ride, go ice-skating, and experience the Go Ape lighted tree top adventure. And don’t forget to visit Santa!

The Great Christmas Light Show already opened on November 25th, but if you have not experienced it yet, don’t fret! The show runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays until December 10th. Then starting on December 15th you can catch the show nightly until December 30th (the show will not be open on Christmas, however). Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. each night.

Admission to the show is $15 per vehicle for one to 15 guests, $30 for 16 to 30 guests, and $60 for 31 or more guests. The price includes admission to Santa’s Village. There is an additional fee for ice-skating, train rides, the Go Ape Lighted Tree Top Adventure, and concessions. Visit www.GreatChristmasLightShow.com for more information.

Nights Of A Thousand Candles

See Brookgreen Gardens in a whole new light this holiday season! This amazing winter event features the glow of more than 5,500 hand-lit candles and the beauty of countless sparkling lights. Walk the paths with a warm cup of cider in hand, while enjoying the festive sound of hand bells ringing and carolers singing beloved holiday tunes. Be sure to stop by Anne’s Garden to see the outdoor glass sculpture exhibit Created by Conway Glass, and witness the garden beautifully decorated with new hand-blown glass flowers and trees. The highlight of your evening will be watching the tree lighting ceremony, which takes place at 5:45 p.m. every night. An 80-foot-tall fir tree decorated with 70,000 lights is truly a sight to behold!

Nights Of A Thousand Candles takes place this year on December 1st through 3rd, 8th through 10th, and 15th through 18th, from three to 10 p.m. each night. Prices vary, and are based on availability. Due to the popularity of this event, you must purchase your tickets in advance.
