More than 2.7 million twinkling lights ignite the sky and dazzle above at Wickham Park in Melbourne – it truly is a winter wonderland. The Space Coast Lightfest is a holiday tradition that locals and visitors alike look forward to all year.
This year’s Space Coast Lightfest is Nov. 21 through Jan. 1, 2017. This holiday drive-through event transforms Wickham Park into a virtual winter wonderland. Journey through the park and experience all the wonders of the holiday season.
