FAQ

WHERE CAN I BUY TICKETS?

We currently do not sell advance tickets for the Festival of Lights.  You simply pay when you arrive at the show.  The fee is either $20 or $25 per vehicle depending on the night.

DO YOU ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS?

The admissions booths accept cash, Mastercard, Visa and American Express.   

DO I HAVE TO TURN OFF MY HEADLIGHTS?

You are welcome to turn off your headlights if you choose.  The road through the show is lined with lights on both sides and provides enough visibility should you choose to turn off your headlights.  However, we recognize that not all vehicle makes and models have the option to turn headlights completely off.

CAN I GET OUT OF MY CAR?

Please do not get out of your car during the show! There are many cords, stakes, and wiring that hold up the displays and are not visible in the dark, and we do not want anyone to get injured.  You may park and exit your car at the end of the show to enjoy the carnival and holiday village activities (open on select nights).

ARE YOU CLOSED BECAUST IT IS RAINING/SNOWING?

The show itself will typically remain open during rain or snow.  If heavy rain causes flooding, or heavy snow makes it unsafe to drive, we will close the show.  While the show does remain open during normal rain or snow events, some holiday village activities and/or the carnival may close.  The best way to check the status during inclement weather is to visit our Facebook page or call the park at 703.631.0550 and press 0 to speak with an attendant.

ARE THERE ANY DISCOUNTS?

We offer a $5 off coupon on our website, valid any Monday through Thursday night during the show.  We also typically have a Certifikid (www.certifikid.com) deal valid for the first three weeks of the season.

CAN I SHOW THE COUPON ON MY PHONE?

Yes, you may show the coupon on your phone.
