Daytona Speedway Magic of Lights

By: Kevin


During my parents’ visit to Daytona Beach this year we took the opportunity to visit the Daytona International Speedway “Magic of Lights Holiday Display”. It was a drive-through light display with a local radio station providing Christmas music as one drives through the 1.5 mile-long display. It took us about 25 minutes to get through the whole thing. Everyone, both kid and adult, enjoyed  the display of LED and incandescent lights. The display featured both secular and religious displays, and both static and animated displays. They even decorated the Speedway ambulances with lights. The kids liked it well enough that when they learned that our neighbor was planning to take them to it a few days later, they were more than happy to go through the display again.

The best part was that while there was an admission fee for the display, a portion of the proceeds went to the Florida Hospital Foundation for the betterment of the community.

As an after-thought I remembered that I had recently installed dash cameras in both of our vehicles, so I pulled the SD card from the dash camera and saved the video of our drive through the light display. It actually turned out pretty well 🙂
