The family tradition of driving through 2.5 miles of dazzling Christmas light displays at New Hampshire Motor Speedway continues this year with the Gift of Lights. The 13th annual event will spread 39 nights of holiday cheer with fundraising for the local community with more than 3.5 million twinkly LED lights on display from Thursday, Nov. 23 (Thanksgiving) through Sunday, Dec. 31 (New Year’s Eve). Gift of Lights will open at 4:30 p.m. nightly til 9pm Sunday-Thurs. and Fri & Sat until 10pm, depending on weather conditions.
This year, the drive-thru light show will feature a 150-foot RGB Tunnel of Lights, arches, toys, numerous scenes including the popular 12 Days of Christmas & much more. Crews will spend more than 650 work hours to set up more than 520 displays & 80 different scenes. Featured attractions will also include the fan-favorite 130-foot-long infield entrance & exit tunnels with more than 25,000 lights & the opportunity to roast marshmallows & toast s’mores over open fire pits.
