Features & Attractions

About the 2019 Show…

NOVA Parks is proud to introduce our newest winter event, Ice & Lights- The Winter Village at Cameron Run. This first year, the show starts on November 15th and runs nightly through January 5th. From January 6-February 29th, the ice rink and Slice & Ice food venue will be open Friday-Sunday, but the village will be closed. Since this is our first year, we are continuously trying new features, and working to improve your experience! We hope you enjoy the show! Did you know we also offer Bull Run Festival of Lights and Meadowlark’s Winter Walk of Lights? Be sure to visit all three!

The Ice Rink

Take a spin on the ice under the twinkling lights! Novice and experienced skaters alike will enjoy this great, winter experience. New to skating? FREE skate aids are available, first come, first served. Please note that on peak nights, the ice is resurfaced hourly. Skate time may be limited to one hour on peak nights.

Bling & Things

Our gift shop offers a variety of festive, light up jewelry, hats, glasses, wands, and more! Be sure to also check out our beautiful commemorative ornament. We offer a variety of stuffed animals and toys, too! Bling & Things is a great place for holiday shopping!

Photo Spots

One of the unique features of Ice & Lights Winter Village are the photo ops. Take a pic, post to social media, and keep those memories! Please do not climb on or touch the displays or walk past the post and ropes. This is for your safety! Photo ops include a giant wreath, 20 foot walk thru tree, beautiful design stars, reindeer family, ice skaters, and more!

Slice & Ice

Bring your appetite! Slice & Ice offers delicious warm treats like pizza (by the slice or whole pies), delicious donut holes, hot chocolate, and more! Be sure to grab a souvenir mug that lights up!

Children’s Area

Weather permitting, a letters to Santa station is set up, along with some fun carnival games in the Winter Village perfect for little ones. Take a look around to see if you can spot the elf hiding at Ice & Lights. If you find him, snap a pic and post to Instagram or Facebook for a chance to win some great prizes!


Getting chilly? Warm up in an igloo! These heated igloos are a great place to take a quick break. Be sure to limit your time to 10-15 minutes maximum, to allow other guests to use the igloos.  Igloos available during the Winter Village only.

Mini Golf

While the mini golf is full of beautiful lights, please do not walk on the mini golf course. Please enjoy the beauty of nature from the walking path only.
