Holiday Lights Opens TONIGHT!

Watsonville, CA – Sparkle, charm, whimsy and tradition… Holiday Lights, at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds, is the must-see event of the holiday season!

The 4th annual Holiday Lights kicks off tonight!

This incredible light display features TWO MILLION lights! You'll be dazzled as you drive a 3/4 mile loop around the fairgrounds... passing through a magical world where everything from Santa Claus to tractors are brought to life in lights. This year, there will be a snow globe display inspired by the artwork of a local 4th grader. Attendees can stay warm and snuggly in their car and listen to a special Holiday Lights radio station while soaking up all the spectacular lights.

Holiday Lights is made possible by the Fair Foundation and Ag History Project.
