2020 Holiday Lights in Virginia Beach

Holiday Lights at the Beach is an amazing light display and holiday celebration on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.  Drive your vehicle ON THE BOARDWALK through Nautical, Holiday, and Adventure Lands with a soundtrack signal playing traditional Holiday music on your vehicle’s radio. Festive fish, musical crabs, and hard-working elves – all in brightly colored lights against the moonlit Atlantic Ocean.
