About The Great Christmas Light Show: The Great Christmas Light Show is a park-wide lighted celebration that is sure to capture the true spirit of the season! Opening to the public on Friday, November 24, the drive-through light show will feature almost 2 million lights festively displayed along a 1.5 mile drive throughout the North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex. Over 500 magical light displays, some up to 55 feet tall, have been custom made for The Great Christmas Light Show. Visitors will experience 20 enchanting animated figures and holiday scenes where the lights will come to life. After the journey through the light show, we invite everyone to park their car and visit Santa’s Village where they can enjoy hot chocolate and s’mores, get an up close look at the lights on the Santa Express Train Ride, ice skating, experience the Go Ape lighted tree top adventure, go tubing down Santa’s new 40-foot inflatable slide and, of course, meet Santa!
