Northern Lights & Drive-In December Show

Northern Lights
Beginning November 30th, our 12-acre campus will be transformed into a spectacle of light, hope, and joy after sunset each evening.  Guests are invited to wander along our walkways, taking in the holiday sights and sounds.

The young and young-at-heart will enjoy tunnels of twinkling lights, giant LED Christmas trees, and blow-up figurines of favorite holiday characters. Marvel as lights move to music in a display curated by local Escondido family The Peace’s featured on ABC’s The Great Christmas Light Fight.

On view daily from 4:30 – 9:00 PM.
This self-guided holiday experience is completely FREE and open to all.
