25th Anniversary of Magic Christmas in Lights at Bellingrath Gardens and Home
It’s one of the nation’s best holiday light shows and it’s right here in south Alabama! Bellingrath Gardens and Home presents the 25th Anniversary Season of Magic Christmas in Lights in 2020. The dazzling nighttime display features more than 1,100 set pieces, 3 million lights and 15 scenes, set out in a walking tour throughout the 65-acre Garden estate.
Opening Night is Friday, Nov. 27, 2020. The show will continue nightly from 5 to 9 p.m. through Dec. 31, 2020.
Magic Christmas in Lights has become a must-see tradition for visitors from the Gulf Coast region and beyond. Families enjoy strolling the grounds together, taking holiday photos, drinking cocoa on Live Oak Plaza and visiting Santa Claus in the Magnolia Café.
Many of our guests do not realize that Magic Christmas in Lights is a made-in-Alabama attraction. Each year, the set pieces for the holiday lights are designed and handmade on site by members of Bellingrath’s staff. Three of our employees work full-time all year on the light display.
Magic Christmas in Lights also includes nightly choral performances on the South Terrace of the Bellingrath Home, which will be open for tours and decorated in full holiday finery. The Gift Shop will be fully stocked for the season, and guests may also have their photos taken with Santa Claus in the Magnolia Café each night through Dec. 23. The Magnolia Café will also have extended hours, 4 to 8 p.m., during the season; menus are posted on the website, bellingrath.org. (The Gardens will be closed on Christmas and New Year’s Days.)
