Holiday Lights Merry Mile

Holiday Lights at VA Beach

BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights returns to Virginia Beach’s boardwalk! Begins Friday, November 13 and continues nightly through January 3, 2021.

New this year, guests will be required to purchase tickets in advance online, via Live on Atlantic’s website. Upon entry, tickets will be scanned on mobile devices, to limit person-to-person contact.

The Bayport Credit Union Holiday Lights at the Beach is the perfect socially-distanced event to attend during the 2020 holiday season! Guests drive their vehicles on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk through holiday, nautical, and adventure-themed light displays, listening on their radios to a soundtrack playing traditional holiday music—all in brightly colored lights against the moonlit Atlantic Ocean. There is a surfing Santa and a 40-foot tall dancing Christmas tree! The magical light display features fish swimming overhead, color-changing archways, and light fixtures that pay tribute to the region’s Armed Forces community.
