The holiday season is a time to celebrate friends and family. But what better way to celebrate than to view the holiday lights? You don’t have to stick to your neighborhood or other places around town this year. Instead, you can come out and view over two miles of holiday light displays that will leave you in awe. It’s all at the Bull Run Festival of Lights. It’s open every night until Jan. 7 from 5:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m., so you have plenty of time to check it out. Come on out today to see what all the fuss is about. But first, read up on these tips to help you have an even better time.
Make Your Car Comfortable
You’re going to be riding through the light display in your car, so make it as comfortable as possible. If you want to get extra snuggly, bring blankets and maybe even pillows. If you aren’t worried about spills in your car, you can bring along some hot cocoa or coffee to enjoy as you view the lights. The warmth from your cup will help make the experience even more magical. Pack some leftover holiday cookies so you have something to snack on, as well.
Check Out the Holiday Village
After you are done with your drive through the lights, get out of the car and stretch your legs at the holiday village. While you’re there, you can grab a bite to eat, enjoy a ride, or grab a refreshment. If you are bringing your kids along, they can even sit with Santa and get a picture. Make sure they know what they want for Christmas, so Santa can put it down on his list.
Beat the Crowds
The festival of lights will be most crowded during the weekends, so if you want to beat the crowds, come during a weekday. Then, you will get discounted pricing and will still get to enjoy all the beauty that the festival has to offer. There are even coupons you can find online, so don’t pay more for this event than you have to.
This is a light display that you drive through, so you’re going to need to have a reliable vehicle that’s comfortable enough for viewing the lights. If you’re still looking for that perfect ride, come to Miller Toyota in Manassas, Virginia. Then, you will have a comfortable car to take you to the light show and everywhere else you’re planning on going this holiday season.
