McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach brings joy and wonder to Hampton Roads each and every holiday season!

Drive on the Virginia Beach boardwalk! Take a luminious journey into nautical, holiday, and adventure lands, all along the beautiful Virginia Beach boardwalk. Festive fish, jumping dolphins, frolicking porpoises all in bright-colored lights against the clear night sky, are the stars of McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach. They are joined by Santa, elves, and a 40-foot tall Christmas tree erected on the beach and in the beautiful parks along the Virginia Beach boardwalk. 

Over 25,000 families a year make this unique light show a part of their holiday celebration!  This “Fanta-Sea” of lights is sure to dazzle and amaze holiday travelers visiting Virginia Beach. One of the highlights is the giant “12 Days of Christmas” display, where some fixtures stand 20 and 30 feet high! Drivers are able to tune their car radios to a frequency to hear holiday music along the McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach display, making it easy to see AND hear why this event has been named one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s “Top 20 November Events” and the American Bus Association's "Top 100 Events in North America for 2011!"

McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach opens nightly beginning at 5:30. Hours of operation are 5:30pm-10:00pm Sunday through Thursday and 5:30pm-11:00pm Friday-Saturday.

All vehicles enter through the main entrance at 2nd Street & Atlantic Avenue for your drive on the boardwalk!
