Holiday Lights at the Beach
McDonald’s Holiday Lights at the Beach brings joy and wonder to Hampton Roads every holiday season! Take a shiny journey into nautical, holiday, and adventure lands – all along the beautiful Virginia Beach boardwalk. Festive fish, jumping dolphins, frolicking porpoises – all in bright, colored lights against the clear night-time sky. They are joined by Santa, elves, and a 40-foot tall Christmas tree erected on the beach and in the beautiful parks along the Virginia Beach boardwalk between 2nd and 24th Streets.
