Continuing its 18-year tradition as southern Nevada’s premiere drive-thru light show, during the 60 days that the holiday light park is open, the show hosts different initiatives to support local charities, churches and schools. When people drive through millions of twinkling lights at Las Vegas Motor Speedway the following community support includes:

  • Speedway Children’s Charities receives a portion of each ticket sold. In fact, Glittering Lights and the PJ5K make up more than half the donations the charity grants to more than 50 children’s charities in southern Nevada.
  • Goodwill of Southern Nevada collects clothing and household goods, transforming donated goods and monetary contributions into pathways to meaningful employment for Southern Nevadans in need.
  • When you purchase food and drink from concessions, area Boy Scout troops gain interpersonal, money management and leadership skills, along with earning money for camp and activities.
  • The award-winning, internationally acclaimed light park will be open every night from November 9 to January 6. Las Vegas Motor Speedway will house the holiday spectacular of 2.5 miles of over 3 million dazzling lights.
