Lights of Life is one of the most affordable holiday lights displays around metro Atlanta. The 1.5 mile drive around the Life University campus in Marietta features more than one million lights, arranged to create charming vignettes.
The holiday lights display opens for the 2020 season on Thanksgiving Day, which is Thursday, November 26th, 2020. It remains open through New Years Eve.
Admission prices are $10 per car, so it’s an affordable family outing. Buses are $20. There are no $5 bargain nights in 2020.
It does not appear that advance ticket purchase is required, as is so common this year.
Sunday – Thursday: dark till 9 p.m.
Friday & Saturday: dark till 10 p.m.
Closing times may be extended when the attraction is very busy.
