The show, which starts November 23 and runs through December 31, includes more than 1,100 set pieces and 15 scenes located throughout the 65-acre property. Indeed, so dazzling is this show that USA Today ranked it in its list of the Top 10 Public Light Displays in the country in 2014. It has also been named a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Festival and Event winner for December 2018.

The English Renaissance-style Bellingrath mansion will be dressed for the holidays as well with poinsettias, twinkling lights, Christmas trees, and magnificent arrangements of seasonal greenery. Sunday through Thursday, nightly choral performances will be held on the home’s South Terrace.

Guests can buy hot chocolate on Live Oak Plaza and shop for Christmas presents in the estate’s well-stocked gift shop. And the on-site Magnolia Cafe will be serving dinner, with a different special – an entree, soup or salad, and dessert – offered daily from 4 to 8 p.m. A kid-friendly meal will also be available each day.

Admission prices for Magic Christmas in Lights are $16 for adults (13 and older), $8 for children aged 5 to 12, and free for children 4 and under.
