The Christmas season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than to hop in the car, turn on some Christmas music, and cruise through some festive lights? In the state of Tennessee, there are a handful of drive-thru holiday light displays that are sure to put you in the Christmas spirit.

3 Drive-Thru Holiday Light Displays in Tennessee

Chad’s Winter Wonderland

To start the list off strong, we decided to include Chad’s Winter Wonderland. This attraction is located in the city of Lebanon, and features a full-size drive-thru Santa house. Inside, Santa will interact with visitors by taking photos and Christmas wishes. There are live animals in the nativity scene, a drive-thru light tunnel, more than 90 arches, and LED lights. Admission is $15 per vehicle and the trail is open from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day until the end of the year.


The Dancing Lights of Christmas

Through the end of the year, the Dancing Lights of Christmas lights up the city of Lebanon with more than half a million lights at the James E. Ward Agricultural Center. The Dancing Lights is the largest drive-thru light and music display in central Tennessee, so it’s a can’t-miss event. The attraction is open daily, regardless of weather and holidays. Non-commercial vehicles make it through for a $25 admission charge.


Speedway in Lights

The city of Bristol is home to the Bristol Motor Speedway, a NASCAR short track. To celebrate the holiday season, the Bristol Motor Speedway hosts Speedway in Lights, the largest holiday light show in the South. The drive-thru display is four miles long and has over two million lights throughout the track. Weekday admission is $15 per car; weekend admission is $20 per car.
