This Year, You Can Drive Your Own Car Through Winter Lights At The North Carolina Arboretum

Winter Lights at The North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville is always a magical experience.

The whole family will love this socially-distant way to elevate your holiday cheer, so read on to learn the details and then start planning a visit!

It would be difficult to stomach a holiday season in North Carolina without attending at least one drive-through Christmas lights show. And thankfully, we don’t have to spend this year without this fun event. Thanks to The North Carolina Arboretum for pivoting in such a wonderful way to make this event a reality for western North Carolina in 2020!

Winter Lights runs nightly from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m from November 20, 2020 through January 10, 2021.
