Holiday Lights Maola Milk Merry Mile

November 23, 2017 to December 31, 2017

Location

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 New Year's Eve.

2017 brings a new experience to the boardwalk at Holiday Lights Maola Milk Merry Mile...a nautical and holiday fantasy of lights spread over a dozen blocks - from 8th Street to 22nd Street.  This year's light show will feature over 50 of our most popular, hand-picked displays along the boardwalk and beach. The entrance will still be 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 Maola Milk Merry Mile...open nightly at 5:30.  Hours of operation are 5:30pm-10:00pm Sunday through Thursday and 5:30pm-11:00pm Friday-Saturday.

The event is not for pedestrians. Advance registration is not required.   Riders will enter the Boardwalk at 2nd Street. This IS NOT A RACE. It is a family-oriented fun ride. Riders will begin in waves to prevent congestion at the start and along the route. Riders will stay on the Boardwalk headed north.   Riders may stop along the route and take photos. The turnaround is at 22nd Street. All riders must stay on the Bike Path headed south on their return ride. Conte’s will staff a table and repair vehicle on the Boardwalk half-way through the ride. Staff can add air to tires, re-fit slipped chains and other minor repairs so everyone can complete their ride. Santa Claus will lead the ride. A crew dressed in holiday attire and riding decorated bikes will immediately follow Santa as a “parade” start. Riders are encouraged to decorate their bikes in holiday themes. Children will select their favorite bike, and that person wins a Conte’s gift certificate. Holiday Lights will open to motor vehicles at 7:45pm on Sunday, December 10.
