Prairie Lights

Prairie Lights is probably one of the most well-known drive-thru light experiences in DFW and it's back this year!

From you car, you'll travel the 2-mile path filled with 4 million lights, hundreds of new displays, and a new and improved light tunnel at the end of the drive!

Gift of Lights

Where: Texas Motor Speedway

Drive through millions of sparkling lights at Texas Motor Speedway this year. It takes about 45 minutes-an hour to drive through the whole experience and you can even order food from the food truck on select Friday and Saturday evenings. They recommend you purchase your tickets online before you come, but they are valid for any date and any time.
