There is nothing more magical than the twinkle of lights during the winter holidays, and there’s no better way to take it in then from the comfort of your warm vehicle! The Magic of Lights allows visitors to drive along a magical route while taking in vibrant LED holiday displays and a stunning 200 foot light tunnel. It takes a Team of 8 Festive ‘Elves’ 6 weeks to set up the over 1.5 MILLION lights in this impressive display!
You can experience all the joy and wonder less than 10 minutes south of Edmonton at RAD Torque Raceway (formerly Castrol Raceway). Perfect for all ages, it is easy to see why this event has become an annual holiday tradition for many families.
Partnering with Canadian Tire, this year’s Magic of Lights is running from Friday, November 19, 2021 until Saturday, January 8, 2022 and promises to be better then ever! It’s 2.5 kilometres of fully decorated with moving animations and beautiful lights that will have the whole car saying “oooooh!” and “ahhhhh!” Not only is it a memorable night out for the family, but it also helps raise funds for some important charities at work in our communities.
All season, a portion of all ticket sales go to 630 CHED Santas Anonymous and Canadian Tire Jump Start, who work tirelessly to support families and children during the holidays and beyond. Plus on November 27, 2021, for one special night only, ALL proceeds go in support to STARS Air Ambulance. Last year a whopping $88, 592.00 was donated to STARS from this one magical night!
Buying tickets online in advance is strongly encouraged and prices start at just $30 per car! You can upgrade to a DASH pass if you want to skip the lineup, which is a great option for those with little o nes who don’t like to idle too long.
Plus, Experience More Magic with one of these Unique Experiences:
- The Santa Photo Pass includes an intimate & interactive “Drive-Up” meet and greet with Santa. A commemorative digital photo of your group will be captured with Santa under the enchanting tunnel of lights.
- The Moonlight Magic Winter Walk-Through lets you take in the magic by foot. Dress warm to see the lights up close as you walk the path at your own pace.
- Double Drive Tuesday’s give visitors the opportunity to drive the Lights TWICE with the donation of a new, unwrapped gift for 630 CHED Santas Anonymous.
- 18 Wheel Wednesday’s presented by Rosenau Transport offer up $5 OFF admission at the gate with a non-perishable food donation for Edmonton’s Food Bank. Let’s work together to fill the 18 wheeler for Christmas.
Celebrate the holidays together, but apart, from the safety and comfort of your own car with the Magic of Lights drive thru experience at RAD Torque Raceway. It’s a great alternative to the traditional holiday gatherings!
