 NAPLES, FL – October 6, 2023 –This holiday season will be brighter, bolder, and more colorful as Collier Fairgrounds is transformed into a vibrant drive-through, holiday-themed light display starting Friday, November 17, through Sunday, December 31, 2023. Tickets for this event are on sale now.

Produced by Family Entertainment Holdings, LLC, “Magic of Lights” will make its debut at the Collier Fairgrounds, featuring dozens of displays, festive favorites, and digital animation, all constructed with over a million individual LED lights to create a memorable holiday experience for the whole family.

“We are excited to bring Magic of Lights to the Naples community and Collier Fairgrounds for the second time become apart of the local annual holiday tradition,” says Ken Hudgens, CEO of Family Entertainment Holdings, LLC. “Our innovative creative team has designed a drive-through holiday wonderland light experience that promises to dazzle and delight guests of all ages.”

“As our community still works hard to rebuild in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, the resilience of Collier County and SWFL shows our state, country and the world that even when life changing events happen, when a community comes together anything is possible. The Collier Fairgrounds is excited to have evenings filled with Magic Lights from November 17-Dec 31.  We want to brighten the Christmas Season with beautiful light displays and provide quality family entertainment for the community – and we all know that this year the extra Holiday cheer is much needed says Rhonda Ward, Fair Manager.

Inside the comfort of their own vehicle, guests will enjoy Magic of Lights’ classic holiday favorites including Winter Wonderland, the 12 Days of Christmas, Toyland, festive Elves and Reindeer Road. In addition to the 200 foot long Enchanting Tunnel of Lights, there will also be other new light tunnels to delight and amaze.

Other illuminated displays include the 32-foot-tall animated Mattel’s Waving Christmas Barbie®, Prehistoric Christmas featuring life sized dinosaurs celebrating the season, and the legendary BIGFOOT® Monster Truck. Created with over two million sparkling lights, Magic of Lights is a nostalgic and festive event everyone will enjoy.

Guests can also stop inside the Jolly Holiday Village, which allows visitors to walk through a magical out-of-car area featuring other holiday activities.

A new augmented reality feature will be introduced this year as well to make the magical experience even more interactive, with details set to be released in November.
