(Shakopee, MN): One of our very favorite holiday traditions – the Sever’s Holiday Lights show has returned for the holiday season with more lights than ever… along with some exciting additions. Check times and dates here!

Can’t miss sights in 2023!

  • About 500,000 additional lights have been added to this year’s show, bringing the total to more than 2.5 million lights synchronized to classic holiday songs.
  • A 3D gift box, 24′ tall by 24′ wide!
  • A family of “drum giants” can be seen as you drive through the show.
  • The Woods Walk – where guests can walk among illuminated trees.
  • A selfie park allows families to gather and take photos at multiple installations. This feature at the grounds has also been expanded, with some new installations and a play area for kids.

The massive 2,500,000+ holiday light display dances in time to the best songs of the season, and with festive food & drink vendors, it’s pretty much guaranteed to be merry. Visitors are welcome to drive the course as many times as they’d like. It’s recommended to go through the drive-thru and then park in the observation lot afterward to enjoy the entire program.

So go ahead, pile into the car—this is one show everyone will want to see.
