DELMAR, Del. - There is a brand new holiday display and organizers say it will be a new Eastern Shore Tradition. Starting November 15th, and running until January 5th, 2013 Decorating Delmarva Holiday Festival Of Lights will run for 36 nights at the Delaware International Speedway and U.S. 13 Dragway located in Delmar, Delaware.
It will feature six major destinations on over 120 acres, for a 2 mile long drive tour of the North Pole. This is a one-of-a-kind event, where the displays were built by the community and are covered in holiday lights. The tour ends in Santa's Village, where there are activities for children of all ages, and of course Santa will be there!
The show will operate every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening beginning November 15, 2012 through December 23, 2012. On December 25, 2012 the event will be open consecutive nights until January 5, 2013. Gates will open week nights at 6pm and close at 10pm. On Friday and Saturday evenings, Gates will open at 6pm and close at 11pm. On December 31, we will host an outdoor New Years Eve party with the gates opening at 6pm and close at 1am.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit many groups around Delmarva including local schools, and non-profit groups. See below for a full list.
