The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation in partnership with Live Nation and FunGuys Events confirms the Magic of Lights is underway at Jones Beach State Park. Jones Beach will shine bright as guests weave through the spectacular 2.5-mile drive-through holiday lights display, which is now open and running through Sunday, December 30. A complete schedule and ticket information is available at

The Magic of Lights, presented by New York Community Bank, features a new themed light display using the latest LED technology and digital animations, including Candy Cane Lane, Snowflake Forest and more, 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 2018 Magic of Lights at Jones Beach is the Toyota Jolly Holiday Festival Village, where guests will walk through a winter wonderland of hot cocoa, s’mores by the fire pit, holiday music & movies, hay maze, pictures with Santa himself and much more.

“Live Nation is so excited to have Magic of Lights back at Jones Beach to once again light up this holiday season,” said Alan Ostfield, President of Live Nation North Atlantic. “We look forward to continuing to be a part of our Long Island communities’ holiday traditions.”

“I encourage New Yorkers to make a visit to the enchanting Magic of Lights show at Jones Beach State Park a part of their holiday celebration,” State Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey said. “We are thrilled to partner with Live Nation to continue this wonderful family event again this season.”
