Christmas lights swope - kc Winter Magic 2

Winter Magic is a drive-thru Christmas lights event in Kansas City. It’s put on in association with the Kansas City, Missouri, Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners. How does it work? Our visitors purchase tickets (one per car-load) in advance here on our website. On your day of arrival, you’ll cruise Oakwood Dr in Swope Park (which we’ve transformed into a modern holiday light experience). How long is it? The drive is approximately one mile long and completely adorned with game-changing holiday light displays.

Winter Magic benefits KC Parks Summer Camp Scholarship Fund – making sure all local children have access to summer learning and fun.

What will you see? While traversing the lights experience, you will see nine themed areas. Drive through the longest animated light tunnel in the Midwest. See sections dedicated to the 12 Days of Christmas, a toy workshop, and a gorgeous stained-glass nativity. Gaze our spinning trees, lighted animals in the zoo area, and the KC Proud section. Then, trip out in our candy blacklight area. Have you had enough? No! We’ll give you a lesson in taste when you see our beautiful lighted spheres. And lastly, you’ll party away as you cruise through Pixel Town.

A World of Winter Wonder Awaits You!
