Remember your mom and dad driving you all around town on Christmas Eve to admire the decorations? This year in Sevierville, TN, Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland has taken the tradition of Christmas sparkle and built an interactive show your entire family will remember for years to come.

Incredible Light Show Set to Music

When you enter the gates at Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland, you’re immediately struck by the brilliance of the glistening decorations. Thousands of bulbs in dozens of colors dance and twinkle on every surface. Trees, poles, and buildings sparkle with color, and tiny lights chase each other in loops and swirls. Bright arches form tunnels across the road and stars pulse with color as you roll beneath them.

But that’s not the most amazing part of the show. As you cruise slowly along the route, you’ll notice the lights begin to flash in rhythm. Tune your radio to the local Christmas music station, and you’ll discover something truly fantastic: the light show is actually choreographed to beat of the songs. From traditional carols to modern renditions of old favorites, the lights in this show twinkle and move in time. The sight will mesmerize your entire family as you make your way through this one-of-a-kind, interactive display.

Kid-Friendly Entertainment

Arrive a little early and your children (grown-ups, too) will enjoy visiting the petting zoo, where they can have a friendly chat with a number of their four-legged friends. The more adventurous kids can hop aboard a pony for a fun ride around the barnyard, or even take a camel for a spin.

In Santa’s Village, you’ll find an inflatable slide to entertain the littlest members of your family. Everyone will enjoy the view from the top of the Ferris wheel, and Santa’s train ride offers a fun way to see the show. Of course, no Christmas entertainment would be complete without the man in red making an appearance, so be sure to bring your wish list to share with him.

After your visit to the North Pole, take the chill out of your fingers with a steaming mug of hot cocoa or apple cider. There are plenty of snacks on hand including Christmas cookies, funnel cakes, and even pizza. Grab some goodies and the kids and head for the car for a repeat of the amazing light show. It’s never the same twice.

If you’re looking for something different to do this Christmas, look no further than Sevierville, TN. The combination of twinkling lights, your favorite Christmas music, and plenty of family fun activities means this show has all the makings of a new holiday tradition. Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland is open at the Tennessee Smokies’ Baseball Stadium from November 11 to January 8. Gates open at dusk every day, and the show lasts until at least 10 p.m.
