Holiday Lights Merry Mile

November 22, 2018 to December 30, 2018


2nd Street & the Boardwalk

Holiday Lights at the Beach is a holiday tradition that brings joy and wonder to Hampton Roads every holiday season!  Join us this year from Thanksgiving Day through December 30.

2017 brought a new experience to the boardwalk at Holiday Lights Merry Mile...a nautical and holiday fantasy of lights spread over a dozen blocks - from 8th Street to 22nd Street.  The light show featured our most popular, hand-picked displays along the boardwalk and beach. The entrance was at 2nd Street.

This shorter, more intimate light show features a shiny 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-time sky, are the stars of Holiday Lights Merry Mile. They are joined by Santa and his elves.

Drivers will be able to tune their car radio to a frequency to hear holiday music along the 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!"

Holiday Lights Merry nightly at 5:30.  Hours of operation are 5:30pm-10:00pm Sunday through Thursday and 5:30pm-11:00pm Friday-Saturday.
