Virginia Beach Boardwalk
Spending Christmas at the beach? Kick off the holiday festivities with a drive down the Virginia Beach Boardwalk under an elaborate holiday light display!
Holiday Lights at the Beach is a long-standing tradition in Virginia Beach. Children and adults will enjoy beach and adventure-themed displays and traditional holiday music from the comfort of their own car! Extravagant light tunnels, surfing Santa, and dancing sea creatures line the boardwalk to create a priceless memory for you and your family. The lights draw both locals and visitors to the beach with over 20,000 families enjoying the event each year. The light show is held rain or shine, so do not be discouraged if the weather is less than ideal on your night out—you will still be able to enjoy the show!
Holiday Lights at the Beach will be running November 18-January 1. The lights open nightly at 5:30pm and stay open until 10pm Sunday through Thursday and 11pm Friday through Saturday. This year, Lights at the Beach guests will benefit from shorter lines with timed entry; guests are required to purchase tickets online in advance for a specific time slot.
Tickets for passenger vehicles are $25 Monday through Thursday, and $30 Friday through Sunday. Check out Military Mondays: guests with military IDs will receive $5 off for reserving a time slot on Mondays.
This year, there will also be a Bike Night on Sunday, January 1st.
