Christmas in Color ValleyFair

Christmas in Color will be at ValleyFair Nov. 27 through Jan. 3, open 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

For the first time, the Valleyfair grounds in Shakopee will be home to a drive-thru Christmas light show running from late November through January.

For $30 per vehicle, folks can drive through a display of more than 1 million LED lights synchronized to the beat of holiday songs, according to a news release. Guests will tune their car radio to a channel that allows them to hear featured music in real time.

In total, the experience lasts about 30-40 minutes. Since patrons don’t have to leave their cars, it’s all socially-distanced.

Event organizers noted weekends tend to be busier, so in order to avoid long lines, booking a time Monday through Thursday may be a good option.

Tickets cannot be purchased at the gate — online reservations are required.
