Christmas Lite Show Returns with New Experiences

This year marks the twenty-first anniversary of celebrating the holidays for Christmas Lite Show — a Grand Rapids area holiday attraction. Christmas Lite Show is West Michigan’s largest, animated, drive-through light show. Located at Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, the attraction maintains almost two miles of lights, tunnels, and animated displays and entertained over 70,000 visitors last year.

Founder, Bill Schrader hopes to continue “Making Lifetime Memories” for other West Michigan families like his own, who helped him open and grow the attraction throughout its twenty-one years. 

This year, the popular Memory Lane Train will return for a second season. Guests can experience maximum views under the sky on this open-air train ride. Also new this year is the 2018 Season Pass Giveaway. The Lite Show will be giving away 21 Season Passes, announced Saturday, December 1st. Santa will visit the Christmas Lite Show on select dates in November and December. To find these dates and more information, please visit 

This year, the Lite Show will open Wednesday, November 21st and run until Monday, December 31st, including all holidays, from 5:30 P.M. until 9:30 P.M. The Bicycle Blast family bike ride through the lights will take place Friday, November 16th from 6 P.M. until 8:30 P.M. and the Red Nose Run will take place Saturday, November 17th from 6 P.M. until 8:30 P.M. New this year is the Winter Wonder Walk, which lets guests walk through the show at their own pace and take close-up photos. The walk will begin at 7 P.M. on Saturday, November 17th, just after the Red Nose Run. Tickets for these events can be found
