HOLIDAY LIGHTS is a 3/4 mile ride through the Magical Lights decorating the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. Stay in the warmth of your vehicle as you enjoy Holiday Carols from our two local radio stations while you view over millions of lights decorating tractors, trees, lawns and the buildings. See Community and Family entries and view our Youth Designer awardee for this year’s competition. It will return to the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds in 2023!

Thanks to KDUB FM 99.9 and KAPU FM 104.7 for our Holiday Music again this year!
