On Sunday my kids, mom and I all went to Sever’s Holiday Lights Drive-Thru Event in Shakopee, and we all agreed – it was magical and fun!
We have attended the Sever’s Fall Festival in previous years, and even went to their Stories, Riddles & Rhymes drive-thru event this year which was cute and whimsical. But with this COVID-quarantining at home going on month after month, we knew we had to go back for their Holiday Lights event for some more COVID-safe cheer!
I had previously written about Sever’s Holiday Lights in my guide, Holiday Lights Drive-Thru Events in Minnesota 2020. Sever’s Holiday Lights is a “magical drive-through display of 1,200,000+ lights synchronized to festive music in Shakopee.” This was one we definitely wanted to visit as it’s privately owned, AND you it’s the only one where you get a free goodie bag when you enter!
Plus – you can go back through again and again if you want!
Sever’s Holiday Lights runs from November 26th, 2020 to January 3rd, 2021. I had heard families have been saying positive things about it and it moves along quickly. Sever’s had some busy nights including this past Saturday, but I learned that was due to another nearby lights show losing power, so they had more people than they typically would have. I should note that when we went you could buy a ticket when you enter, but they changed that since this weekend so now you MUST buy a ticket in advance online.
$25 per car (for 1-7 people)
$40 per 8+ vehicles
This does not include sales tax.
Note that it’s the same price as Christmas in Color at Valleyfair which is nearby.
We got our ticket online in advance for the 5:00 – 6:30pm timeslot. We arrived right at 5:00pm, and there was a short line ahead of us, but it moved continuously.
