The drive-thru is quintessentially American. So, how could Christmas in this country be complete without a drive-thru lightshow? At Tradewinds Park in Coconut Creek, Brandano Displays has decked out a three-mile stretch in a bedazzling electric show for the 15th annual Holiday Fantasy of Lights. There are enormous train stations, castles, giant teddy bears, snowflake arches, and towering Christmas trees made of threads of bulb. Heres whats unique about Brandanos show: Theyre selling 3D glasses; wear them and they add a new dimension to the spectacle. Altogether, over 150,000 vehicles are expected to show. Itll be a mass migration.
The Holiday Fantasy of Lights at Tradewinds Park (3600 W. Sample Rd., Coconut Creek) starts November 25 and runs until January 2. Park opens daily at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $12 per car, but $9 on Monday to Wednesday. Call 954-623-6556, or visit holidaylightsdrivethru.com.
