It’s not too late to enjoy one of the Northeast’s largest and most beautiful holiday displays. During the three-mile drive, you’ll see more than 675,000 lights.
Since 1995, Bright Lights in western Massachusetts has brought fun and joy to more than six million visitors and has been rated among the top displays in the United States by many organizations. This year, it made USA Today‘s top 10 public light display list.
In normal years, you can stop at Santa’s Magical Forest to enjoy snacks, gift shopping, wagon rides, and the carousel and amusement rides for the kids. You could also mail a letter to Santa in a box outside the gift shop. But this year, due to safety measures from COVID, only the drive-through display is open and tickets must be purchased online before you go.
Tickets are $25 per car or $35 if you want to ride in a limousine. Buy tickets here.
Bright Nights is located at Forest Park, 300 Sumner Avenue, in Springfield, Massachusetts. It’s open daily November 25-January 6, 4:45-9:30 p.m. For more information, go to brightnights.org.
Springfield is 92 miles southwest of Boston.
