Magic of Lights, the popular drive-thru, family-friendly holiday lights extravaganza returns to Daytona International Speedway. Back for its third year at the “World Center of Racing” Nov. 22 through Jan. 1, Magic of Lights is bringing several new elements for guests to experience and even more holiday lights.
A portion of the proceeds from the Magic of Lights tours will benefit the AdventHealth facilities in Volusia and Flagler counties.
Earlier this month, Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile presented Cully Chapman, AdventHealth Daytona Beach chief financial officer and AdventHealth’s executive champion for the partnership with the Speedway, with a ceremonial check for $14,537.
These funds were used to purchase new cribs and pediatric exam tables at AdventHealth Daytona Beach and are a portion of the proceeds generated from the 2018 Magic of Lights.
New to this year’s Magic of Lights are an out-of-car experience featuring a S’Elfie Tunnel, refreshments and snacks, and an expanded route with new displays and an additional 100,000 lights.
Among the new light displays for 2019 are the Ornament Passing and Joy to the World. Returning favorite traditional displays include the Enchanting Tunnel of Lights, 12 Days of Christmas, the 200-foot Candy Cane Lane, and Snowflake Forest.
Guests will be able to enjoy all the spectacular displays, using the latest LED technology and digital animations, from the comfort of their vehicle. The experience will include a drive behind the Ticket and Tours Building and through the venue, and conclude in the Midway display area.
Advance tickets are on sale now at www.daytonainternationalspeedway.com or by calling 1-800-PITSHOP.
Tickets cost $20 per car in advance, $25 per car at the gate on weekdays (Monday through Thursday), or $30 on weekends (Friday through Sunday).
