Holiday Light Spectacular

If you’re the kind of person who enjoys driving by displays of twinkling holiday lights, you’ll want to mark your calendar for the Marshfield Holiday Light Show. This is the first year that this traveling holiday light show will be setting up on the South Shore and it is the only drive-through holiday light spectacular of its kind in eastern Massachusetts.

Close to 50 larger-than-life holiday light displays will be set up at the Marshfield Fairgrounds. Assembling all of the scenes takes a production team of 12 people between two and three weeks to complete. One of the best parts about this event is the fact that guests don’t even have to get out of your car to enjoy the show. Families can pack into the car in their yoga pants or pajamas, enjoy favorite snacks and beverages and tune their radio to sing along with the synchronized soundtrack of holiday music.

The route through the light show is approximately 1-mile long, but attendees can expect to spend around 30 minutes driving through. The show is open on select dates between November 22  and December 29. Gates open at 5 p.m. sharp and tickets can be purchased online or in person at the event. Any tickets purchases online are valid for any day  the Marshfield Holiday Light Show is open. For more information, visit
