Magical Nights of Lights at Lake Lanier Islands

About the Magical Nights

Lake Lanier Islands celebrates 20 years of Magical Nights of Lights!

You’re invited to bring family and friends to another year of twinkling lights and bright smiles.  Add memories of your own to the famous traditions under the lights.

Fill your car with family, friends and neighbors and head out to Magical Nights of Lights.  Enjoy a slow ride with miles of illuminated characters and millions of twinkling lights:

  • drive over the magnificent snowflake bridge
  • down through the 12 days of Christmas
  • up past the illuminated diamond wonder light
  • under the blanket-lit bridge
  • to the dancing Holiday House
  • Santa’s Workshop
  • Christmas Carnival and more!

The celebration begins Friday, November 16th until New Year’s Eve, Monday, December 31st.

The Magical Nights of Lights journey doesn’t stop with the lights.  The Holiday Village is a must-see for everyone, complete with a bonfire for roasting marshmallows, delicious holiday fare, pony and amusement rides, holiday shopping and much more.  Find the perfect Christmas tree ornament to commemorate your visit.

Kids of all ages can take a break from roasting marshmallows and riding ponies to have their photos taken and discuss their holiday wish lists with Santa himself at the Santa Shop.  (Nominal charges apply to the Santa photos, amusement rides, pony rides and marshmallow roasting.)

      Hi Martha. Yes, I believe so. It’s worth calling the Island to check, but I’m 99% sure it’s handicap accessible.

    It is accessible, it is tight in the store or “workshop” we had a hard time getting a stroller through last year.
