Thanks to WonderLight’s Christmas for sponsoring this post!

A New Holiday Tradition for Columbus Families: WonderLight’s Christmas:

You may not have your Christmas tree up yet, but National Trail Raceway sure does! “WonderLight’s Christmas”, a drive-through Christmas light show synchronized to music, kicks off its first season at National Trail Raceway on Friday night, November 13, 2020!

National Trail Raceway is located in Hebron, Ohio, which is just to the east of Columbus, outside the beltway. The easiest way to get there is to follow I-70 to exit 126. Once you get off the exit, it’s hard to miss WonderLight’s Giant 80-Foot Christmas Tree!

This family-friendly event features an approximately 2-mile car ride through more than a million LED lights! With giant trees, floating snowflakes, shooting stars, candy canes, lollipops, and more, this show is sure to become your family’s newest holiday tradition.

The show is synchronized to music, which means that as you drive-through, the lights come to life before your eyes, dancing along to the music from your radio. The kids will love singing along to the songs they know and the old, familiar melodies will warm the heart of any Grinch you might bring with you!

This show also features THREE massive tunnels of light, which will absolutely captivate kids of all ages as you make your way through.

One of the best parts about this Christmas light show is that you never have to leave your vehicle to enjoy the lights! You can even visit in the snow—no bundling up necessary! You might even bring a warm drink or a favorite holiday snack, just to make it extra cozy!

Visiting the Light Show:

This dazzling display will run from November 13 to January 3, 2021 —so there’s only seven weeks to see it! Since it’s open rain or shine, every evening, including holidays, I recommend you go on a weeknight to cut down on your wait in line. The lines may be long on weekends and the kids will definitely be anxious to enter the show!

The cost is only $7 per person and children 3 years old and under are FREE! If you’ve got a larger family, you may opt instead to purchase a Carload Special, which grants entry to one passenger vehicle with up to 7 passengers for $30. If you have an even larger group, WonderLight also has discounted group rates available at

WEEKEND UPDATE: Due to long lines and wait times on the weekends, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday only, timed tickets will be available for purchase online. Entry is not guaranteed (on the weekend) for cars who have not pre-purchased tickets. Also on weekends, in order to streamline the process at the entry gate, only the $30 carload pass and group rates will apply.

WonderLight’s Christmas in Ohio Gives Back:

My favorite part about this new Christmas light show is that they give back to the Central Ohio community. The Salvation Army will be stationed just outside the ticket booth to take donations all season long and they even have dedicated events scheduled to give back to other community organizations!

Their Season of Giving events happen during the first two weeks of the show and a portion of the proceeds from each of those nights will benefit a cause that supports local families in need.
