The holiday tradition returns to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront with over 25 new light displays, two additional blocks of lights, and a new 600 ft. LED tunnel, the largest and longest curved LED light tunnel in the U.S.

One of this year’s new displays was created from a drawing by Virginia Beach elementary school student, Kylie Zhu. The Old Donation School student’s drawing titled “Melting Snowman” was chosen from over 50 submissions following a contest open to all participating Virginia Beach schools last Spring and was produced by local artist and executive, Andy Vakos into a 17-foot-high by 14-foot-wide display. The “Melting Snowman” will be located in front of Oceanfront Inn at 29th Street.

Jumping fish, musical crabs, and jolly elves dance in lights against the backdrop of the moonlit Atlantic Ocean. Highlighted by a Surfing Santa, color-changing archways, light fixtures that pay tribute to the region’s Armed Forces community, and a 40-foot dancing-light Christmas tree, the 2023 BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights at the Beach, presented by Food Lion, offers wondrous fun for the entire family.

The 2023 BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights at the Beach, presented by Food Lion, will again utilize timed entry to minimize wait times. Guests must purchase tickets in advance for a specific day and time, available at beacheventsvb.com.

Enjoy a special holiday treat as you navigate the lights. Fresh popped popcorn, kettle corn, homemade cookies, hot apple cider, and hot chocolate will be available. Orders will be taken and delivered along the route. Credit/Debit sales only
