The Magic of Lights drive-through experience, presented by New York Community Bank, will feature themed light displays using the latest LED technology and digital animations, including the all new drive through Blizzard Tunnel as well as returning favorites including 12 Days of Christmas, Winter Wonderland and The Night Before Christmas. Families and friends will experience the thrill of Magic of Lights from the comfort of their own cars as they wind through its course in one of New York’s most beautiful natural settings.

A special feature of the 2019 Magic of Lights at Jones Beach is the Toyota Holiday Village in its new location, where guests will walk through a winter wonderland of hot cocoa, s’mores by the fire pit, game room, the return of the fan favorite Diamond Snow Dogs, the new s’ELFie Walk and Candy Cane Lane, pictures with Santa himself and much more. New to the Holiday Village this year are the Illuminating Mega Trees, which will dazzle fans with over 240 feet of synchronized lights and music.
