The Lancaster Celebration of Lights and the Greater Boston Celebration of Lights offer socially distant holiday fun this season.

Two new drive-thru holiday light experiences are bringing cheer to the Bay State this season.

The Lancaster Celebration of Lights opens at the Bolton Fairgrounds on Wednesday, Nov. 25, and the Greater Boston Celebration of Lights opens Friday, Nov. 27 at the former Fernald School in Waltham. Both light displays will be open daily through Jan. 3. 

At each drive-thru experience, visitors will be treated to a mile-long dazzling display featuring over one million glittering lights. In Lancaster, a  90-foot Christmas tree and giant 85-foot wreath will also light up the night.

The holiday events are designed as a safe holiday experience that guests can enjoy from their own vehicle.
