4 Drive-Thru Holiday Light Displays in South Carolina


Upstate Holiday Light Show

Head to Easley to experience a 32-million light display synced to holiday music, while you stay warm in your vehicle.  This event also has a pony corral, petting zoo, and ice skating to keep visitors of all ages engaged. Make sure to get a picture with Santa before you head home.


The Great Christmas Light Show

Witness Myrtle Beach’s annual display of nearly 2 million lights when you attend The Great Christmas Light Show. Embark on a 1.5-mile drive through twinkling lights, then park your vehicle and peruse the petting zoo and Santa’s Village areas. Train rides and free snacks will help keep young guests happy. There’s also a zip line for a more adventurous view of the exhibit.


Holiday Festival of Lights

Each year, James Island County Park puts on its captivating drive-thru light display, signaling that the Christmas season has begun. Besides enjoying the lights, you can also catch a ride on a Victorian carousel and purchase some treats from Santa’s Sweet Shoppe during your visit. This event runs now through Jan. 1, so catch it while you can.


Holiday Lights Safari

If you’re wanting more than a typical light display, venture to Hollywild Animal Park in Wellford to take part in the Holiday Lights Safari. Drive through the Enchanted Deer Forest where you can feed the deer while keeping warm in your car. You can also get up close with the zebras, camels and other animals on the site. Admission costs go toward supporting the animals that call this 100-acre animal park.
