This holiday season New Hampshire Motor Speedway will become home to more than one million LED lights and hundreds of holiday light displays, as the speedway transforms into a one-mile drive-through light park beginning Nov. 18 and running through Jan. 1.

The Gift of Lights will make its debut Friday.  It creates a festive atmosphere by allowing visitors to drive through several themed areas including the 12 Days of Christmas, the zoo, the beach and much more. The path starts at NHMS' main gate and winds around the outside of the grandstands and includes a stretch of the road course.  At the end of the route, visitors can experience Santa’s Village in the NHMS office, where they will enjoy hot cocoa, concessions and free photo opportunities with Santa.

Open nightly, the hours of operation for the light show will be Sunday through Thursday, 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, from 5:30 p.m. until10 p.m. The cost is $15 per vehicle.

Proceeds from the Gift of Lights will go to the New Hampshire Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities, helping kids in need throughout New England.
