What does a new minor league baseball team do when a pandemic interrupts their first season? They put on a holiday light show! Hundreds of thousands of lights will be on display for all to safely enjoy this holiday season. The Rocket City Christmas Spectacular comes to Toyota Field on Friday, November 13th and runs through Sunday, January 3rd.
A New Drive-Through Light Show
At the Rocket City Christmas Spectacular, guests can drive through the magical “Santa’s Mountain” themed light show around Toyota Field for just $25 per car. The festivities will begin at 5:00pm nightly. Visitors will be able to simply tune into their vehicle’s radio and experience a spectacular synchronization of music and lights. Tickets can be purchased online in advance, or on the day of the event – credit cards and mobile pay are encouraged.
After you drive through the lights, you can park and head in to see the winter wonderland within the stadium at no additional cost. Inside the ballpark will feature numerous holiday activities for all ages, including hot chocolate stations, cookie decorating, s’mores making, character visits, and more. Social distancing is required as well as masks in the covered but outdoor spaces.
Come hungry, because you can even have dinner while you’re there. They’ve got bread bowls full of hot loaded potato soup, kid’s meals, and even those giant plastic helmets full of chicken fingers!
The winter wonderland will be open through December 24th during all Christmas Spectacular hours, and additionally will open at 11 AM on Saturdays and Sundays.
“We want to turn Toyota Field into the best holiday destination in North Alabama for years to come,” said Trash Pandas President and CEO Ralph Nelson. “Our plan is to expand and improve our Winter Wonderland year after year.”
CDC and Madison County health guidelines will be followed at the Rocket City Christmas Spectacular.
