If you’re looking for a family-friendly, inexpensive way to get yourself and your loved ones into the Christmas spirit, then Riverhead Holiday Light Show is the perfect option for you.
It’s a 1.5-mile drive-through event that will remind you how much you love Christmas. The Riverhead Holiday Light Show is the largest drive-through light show in Suffolk County!
Featuring dozens of dazzling displays to delight the entire family! Take your family or your friends and enjoy the beauty of this holiday in its best form.
What You’ll See
The whole drive will take you around 20-25 minutes, and during this time, you’ll see multiple LED light displays. They include Santa driving a motorcycle, dragon, sleigh, and more.
If you attended the Riverhead Holiday Light Show last year, then perhaps you think that you’ve seen it all, and there is no point in going there this year. But for that reason, the event organizers created new displays that you have definitely not seen before.
The LED lights will “dance” to the music that will play on the radio in your car. In 2018 and 2019 years, the radio station was 104.7 WELJ, and it should be the same this year, too. But in case it’s a different station, you’ll get the instructions on which radio station to turn on when you enter the attraction.
Imagine yourself and your loved ones sipping hot cocoa from your favorite coffee shop, listening to your favorite holiday songs, and watching gorgeous Christmas lights as you drive past them. Doesn’t that sound cozy?
