Holiday Lights at the Beach

November 23, 2017 to December 31, 2017


2nd Street & the Boardwalk

Holiday Lights at the Beach, presented by Liberty Tax Service, is a holiday tradition that brings joy and wonder to Hampton Roads every holiday season!

2017 brings a new "Holiday Lights" experience to the boardwalk with a "boutique" Fanta-Sea of lights spread along 10 blocks - from 23rd Street to 33rd Street.  This year's light show will feature over 50 of our most popular, hand-picked displays along the boardwalk and beach.

Take 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 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. 

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 at the Beach, presented by Liberty Tax Service, opens nightly at 5:30.  Hours of operation are 5:30pm-10:00pm Sunday through Thursday and 5:30pm-11:00pm Friday-Saturday.
