If you are looking to do something with your entire family this Christmas season then head to Jones Beach for their Holiday Lights Spectacular.
“From November 20th through January 3rd you can immerse yourself in the holiday spirit with over 2.5 miles of holiday scenery that makes this the most wonderful time of the year. With over 150 light displays, Holiday Lights Spectacular creates a magical winter wonderland on Long Island.”
One of my very best Momee friend’s, Nikki headed to the Jones Beach Holiday Light Show again this year with her family and shared her photos and review with us. She says, “young or old you will enjoy seeing the light show while tuning into their radio station that has Christmas music playing. This event will be sure get you and your family into the Christmas Spirit.”
Nikki told me : “My husband and I took our kids to the Jones Beach Light Show. It was $25.00 to get in and the weather was perfect. My kids were amazed by all the different lights. The light show took us about 20 minutes to drive through.
My kids were amazed by all of the different lights. We stopped in the village and saw Santa, had hot chocolate and made Smores on the outdoor fire pits. They do allow you to bring your own stuff to make Smores , so next year I will definitely remember to do that.
After we made Smores the kids ran through the North Pole Maze and had so much fun! The maze is FREE to do and so is the Ice Skating but you have to bring your own skates.”
“The Chrysler Holiday Village makes its return this year inside of the park. Stay warm in our heated area with fun for everyone including picture taking with Santa, a make your own s ‘mores station, holiday themed refreshments and snacks, performances from local school choirs on select nights, holiday music, holiday movies and NEW for 2015, Ice Skating! “
Other reviews from local parents:
Michelle says: “Great event for Toddlers! It is $25.00 on the weekends and starts at dusk. My three-year-old absolutely loved it! Just seeing all the lights was like a fairy tale and there is even a fairy tale section and a beach party section that we loved. Oh, and we love that Wednesday is bring your pets for Pictures with Santa.”
Pam says: “had a great time. You wait in line for a very long time, but we brought dinner and played Christmas music. The village is adorable!“
Laura says: “We go every year. Its so great!”
Melanie says: “We went last year and had a blast, going again this year the week of Christmas. Super excited!
Some complaints made about the show:
“I would say from the entire experience was the thirty minute wait to get into the show.”
“I thought it was a little pricey since everything in the village costs extra.”
“Waited in line in the car for about an hour and then felt like we were pushed through to drive fast so didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought we would.“
