Play (snow)ball! Rocket City Christmas Light Show is on deck at Toyota Field

MADISON – The bats and balls are put away and it’s time to break out the snow globe and Christmas lights at Toyota Field.

That’s right, the fourth annual Rocket City Christmas Light Show and Winter Wonderland is back.

The musically synchronized, drive-through event with nearly 1 million Christmas lights on display starts Nov. 17.

This year’s theme is set as “Santa’s Favorite Tales” with a nod to Jolly Ol’ St. Nick’s favorite tales and nursery rhymes such as the Gingerbread Man, Goldilocks, Humpty Dumpty, and Snow White.

“The excitement of the Christmas season is a feeling we look forward to every ‘off-season’,” said Garrett Fahrmann, Trash Pandas executive vice president and general manager. “We have welcomed more than 65,000 families to the ballpark for the Christmas Light Show and we can’t wait for them to experience this year’s show.”

Guests can drive through 1 1/2 miles of displays for $30 per car. Festivities last from 5-9 p.m. each night, rain or shine. Guests can tune in to 95.5 FM for the synchronized soundtrack for the light show.

Tickets are $60 for 15-passenger vans or larger vehicles. Group rates are available as well. Full details and tickets are available at TrashPandasChristmas.com.

Admission price includes access inside Toyota Field’s Winter Wonderland (open select nights, schedule at TrashPandasChristmas.com) which features:

  • Christmas Village Huts
  • Visits from Santa Claus and “Atmosphere” characters on select nights
  • 15-foot snow globe
  • Rotating artisan crafts and vendors
  • Hot chocolate, cider (“spiked” options available) and s’mores kits
  • Rocket City Trash Pandas Foundation Tree Sale
    • The Trash Pandas Foundation is partnering with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, First Stop, and the Russell Hill Cancer Foundation to sell Christmas trees with proceeds going to the nonprofit organizations.

The Junkyard Team Store will be open during Christmas Light Show night featuring a weekly New Era hat special.
