It’s time for New Hampshire Motor Speedway to trade in the checkered flags for more than 3.5 million twinkly LED lights for the 11th annual Gift of Lights, open Thursday, Nov. 25, 2021 (Thanksgiving) through Sunday, Jan. 2, 2022 (4:30-9 p.m. Sundays – Thursdays and 4:30-10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, depending on weather conditions). Gift of Lights will be closed Monday – Wednesday, Nov. 29 – Dec. 1 and Dec. 6-8.

The 2.5-mile drive-thru light show shines bright with 3.5 million lights, a 150-foot RGB Tunnel of Lights and fun scenes including the Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks, Mother Goose, Jack Be Nimble, Deer Beach Vacation and a package wrapping machine. Over 650 hours go in to setting up more than 520 displays and 80 different scenes each year, which also includes the popular 12 Days of Christmas scene and the fan-favorite 130-foot long infield entrance and exit Tunnels of Lights made up of over 25,000 lights.
