The holidays are here, and that means it’s time for New Hampshire Motor Speedway to trade in the checkered flags for more than 2.5 million twinkly LED lights for the ninth annual Gift of Lights presented by Eastern Propane & Oil, open Thursday, November 28, 2019 (Thanksgiving) through Sunday, January 5, 2020.
The Gift of Lights has become a family tradition during the holidays. The 2.5-mile drive-thru light show will feature the Tunnel of Lights (the 130-foot-long infield entrance and exit tunnels will be brightly lit, giving a truly memorable experience that kids of all ages will need to see to believe), 520 displays, 80 different scenes and a s’mores pit, which will be hosted by the Loudon Firefighters Association on Friday and Saturday nights (through December 21).
Admission is $25 per car or bus (up to 15 people). Buses containing more than 15 people will also be charged an additional $2 per person for anyone over the 15 allowed.
Santa will be located in the NHMS Main Office on Friday and Saturday nights (through December 21). Kids of all ages can have their picture taken with the one and only Santa Claus for $5/photo. Cash or credit cards are accepted, but checks will not be accepted.
Save $2 off your admission when you bring three or more non-perishable food items for donation to the Loudon Food Pantry or participate in one of the theme nights: PJ Night (December 4), Military Night (December 11) or Ugly Sweater Night (December 18).
A portion of all per car load admission proceeds as well as a portion of the proceeds from the Yule Light Up The Night run/walk will benefit Speedway Children's Charities New Hampshire Chapter.
Be sure to check the complete schedule for days of operation when planning your trip, and please enter through the South Entrance.
