South Carolina State Fair representatives will be embracing the holiday spirit this December with the organization's fist drive-through light show. Carolina Lights will be on display from Dec. 7 to 28 at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds.

The experience will feature more than 100 individual LED light displays along a stretch over a mile in the Lexington Medical Center Fair Park in the fairgrounds.

“The holidays are such a special time in our state, and we wanted to offer residents another way to celebrate the season with family and friends,” said South Carolina State Fair manager, Nancy Smith. “We believe this experience will provide an ideal complement to the many outstanding seasonal displays in our area.”

The display is a new addition this year as part of the South Carolina State Fair’s 150th anniversary. It will feature the Twelve Days of Christmas, a dancing field of Christmas trees, and a 25-ft. Frosty with dancing arches, presents, and more.


Carolina Lights will run from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 6 to 10 p.m. Friday through Sunday. Admission is $20 per car, $35 for mini-buses (9-24 passengers) and $70 for vehicles with 25 or more passengers. Payment in the form of cash, Visa or Mastercard will be accepted at the gate.

Patrons should enter at gate 6 on George Rogers Boulevard. More information can be found at The display is being presented by Missouri-based North Pole Productions.
