Tennessee’s largest computer synchronized light show with a 2.5 mile route and over two million lights dancing to the music is back. It’s a great way to spend a “socially distanced” evening with the entire family and celebrate Christmas! Saturdays are typically the busiest days. If you choose to come on Saturday, expect a fairly long wait time. They are open 7 days a week, with the other days having little to no wait time.
