There Are Over A Million LED Lights At The Coney Island Christmas Nights Of Lights

The Christmas Nights of Lights show at Coney Island is to ordinary Christmas events what Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree is to ordinary Christmas carols.

It’s electric, it’s jazzed up, it’s full of energy. In a word, it’s fun.

That fun comes from the show’s LED lights, of which there are more than a million. They ornament larger-than-life trees, glittering snowflakes, dancing candy canes, and fantastic tunnels of light. The lights blink in perfect concert with traditional and new rocking Christmas music, so you’ll hear a dose of Mariah’s belting alongside Bing’s velvety vibrato.

Best part is you’ll never have to leave your car. The light show runs along 2.5 miles of driving paths, and the music is pumped into your car radio. So you and your family can stay warm while taking in those holiday vibes.

The Christmas Nights of Lights show runs until at least 10 p.m. every day through January 1, with extended hours on the weekends.

You should go during the week for a more relaxed experience. And if you can swing it, you should go this Thursday, November 16. Why? Because that’s when $1 of your ticket purchase will go to Children’s Hospital StarShine Hospice program.

We don’t need to tell you how important that program is. So use this chance to get in both the giving spirit and the Christmas spirit at once, and you’ll have succeeded in making someone else’s life a little better.

Which is what the holidays are all about.
