The 2022 holiday season kicks off with Bright Up the Night, Alaska’s largest drive-through holiday light display, at the Alaska State Fair starting on Thanksgiving and running through New Year’s Eve. Tickets to the event go on sale Monday, October 10.
The holiday attraction, presented by ConocoPhillips, features more than 70 different light displays, more than half of which are brand new for 2022. From the warmth and comfort of their vehicles, guests drive through almost a mile of festive light displays spanning the entire length of the fairgrounds while enjoying the holiday music broadcast synced directly to their radio.
Bright Up the Night will be open Thursdays through Sundays from November 24 through December 11, and daily from December 15 through December 31. Hours are from 5 to 9 p.m.
A limited number of vehicles will be allowed in each hour, and ticket reservations can be made online in advance. Admission purchased by November 23 is $20 for personal vehicles, $35 for vans or limos, and $70 for buses. Tickets purchased after November 23 are $25 for personal vehicles, $40 for vans or limos, and $75 for buses. Tickets may be purchased at the venue.
