3 drive-through Christmas light displays opening in Denver area

A holiday-season tradition is returning for a 6th year at 3 Colorado locations.

MORRISON, Colo. — Denver's biggest drive-through Christmas light displays are back for the holiday season.

Christmas in Color opens its drive-through light displays Friday at three Colorado locations for the festive season.

The displays will be lit at Water World in Federal Heights, Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, and in Aurora at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds.

The displays each feature more than one million LED lights arranged into tunnels, trees, giant candy canes, snowflakes and more, all synchronized to festive holiday music on the FM radio dial.

The display first set up at Water World in Federal Heights in 2018 and a second display opened at Morrison's Bandimere Speedway in 2019. A display at Aurora's Arapahoe County Fairgrounds was added in 2022.

The three Colorado locations, Water World, Bandimere Speedway and Arapahoe Event Center, open for the holiday season on Friday, Nov. 17.

Christmas in Color is open 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. through Saturday, Dec. 30. All locations are traditionally closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Organizers estimate it takes visitors about 30 minutes to weave their way slowly through each display. Guests will also get a pair of 3D glasses to wear during the experience. Only one ticket is needed per vehicle.

Tickets are on sale at ChristmasinColor.net.
