Need to warm up after strolling through the lights? Head inside The Chapel of Mary for a performance by a local choir group. (Over 150 choirs will perform over the festival’s 35 nights.) The cathedral-like acoustics and holiday hymns promise to fill up even the Grinchiest among us with Christmas spirit.

This time of year can be hectic, so plan ahead and purchase tickets if the Festival of Lights is on your holiday bucket list. Pro tip: Check out the value nights for discounted admission.

Holiday cheer this way.*
