Since 1996, 50,000+ cars drive along the boardwalk at night and view a colorful display of nautical-themed characters and animals. Listen to holiday music as you drive down the Virginia Beach boardwalk...dazzled by jumping fish, surfing Santas, and playful mermaids! The area is transformed from a peaceful oceanfront into a play land of nautical and holiday characters right before your eyes. Viewing this holiday treat has become a tradition for Hampton Roads families, with new displays added each year. There is a charge per vehicle to drive through the display. Beginning on 2nd Street on the Boardwalk.
