Holiday Fantasy of Lights, Florida’s largest festive drive-thru, returns to Coconut Creek.

Held at the Tradewinds Park until January 1, the drive-thru is open every evening from 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. and features three miles of giant animated holiday displays and illumination.

This year, the event is larger than ever, blending the favorites of the past and the excitement of new creations by Margate company Brandano Displays, Inc. 

Holiday Fantasy of Lights, now in its 28th year, has become a beloved tradition for the residents and attracts over 125,000 visitors of all ages in 25,000 cars, trucks, and buses annually.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the entrance and cost $24 per car or $45 for 12+ in a vehicle or bus, and an additional $2 per pair of custom holiday HoloSpex 3D glasses.

A portion of the proceeds goes to Gilda’s Club South Florida, which offers free programming and services to families impacted by cancer.

Tradewinds Park is located by Sample Road and the Florida Turnpike, with a convenient northern entrance on 3600 W Sample Rd.
