Drive Through an Incredible Holiday Light Display During the Merry Mile

The lights will be turned on once again at the BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights Merry Mile, bringing joy and wonder to Hampton Roads this holiday season! From November 22 through December 31, take a shiny journey into nautical, holiday, and adventure lands – all along the beautiful Virginia Beach boardwalk. Check it out this Wednesday, December 11th!

Festive fish, musical crabs, and hard-working elves, all in bright, colored lights against the clear night-time sky, are the stars of The BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights Merry Mile. They are joined by Santa and a 40-foot tall Christmas tree erected on the beach and in the beautiful parks along the Virginia Beach boardwalk. There’s even a giant castle, snow globes, and spectacular light tunnels to drive through.

20,000 families a year make this unique light show a part of their holiday celebration! This “Fanta-Sea” of lights is sure to dazzle and amaze! Drivers will be able to tune their car radio to a frequency to hear holiday music along the BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights Merry Mile, making it easy to see AND hear why this event has been named one of the best family events by Southeast Tourism Society and the American Bus Association!

“At BayPort, we are committed to investing in our communities. Part of that investment is working with our community partners to provide family-friendly experiences to all of Hampton Roads. That is why we are excited to be the presenting sponsor of this year’s Holiday Lights Merry Mile along the beautiful Virginia Beach Boardwalk,” said President/CEO Jim Mears.
