MADISON, Ala. — Guests can drive through the enchanted North Pole-themed mile and a half show that features hundreds of thousands of lights this season! While driving through the light show, guests can tune in to 95.5 FM for a Christmas soundtrack to accompany the light show. The festivities last from 5-9 p.m. each night, rain or shine.

Santa Claus will be visiting Toyota Field each night from November 25 through December 18 ahead of Christmas.

Admission is $30 per car, and $60 for passenger vans or larger vehicles. Toyota Field is a cashless venue, accepting most major credit cards as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay.
