Second Annual Riverhead Holiday Light Show

After months of planning and hard work the Riverhead Holiday Light Show & Santa’s Village is set to open on Friday, November 22nd at 5pm. The show will feature dozens of new larger-than-life displays, some towering as tall as 3 stories, and spanning more than 100 feet in length! Attendees can expect to take about 20-25 minutes to drive through the show in its entirety. This year they introduced photos with Santa at Hotel Indigo. Attendees are able to buy packaged tickets for the Light Show and photos with Santa. Once open, the show and photos with Santa is scheduled to remain open select dates through December 29th. A full schedule for the show is available online at

“Last year the light show had an amazing attendance, bringing people from every zip code on Long Island. We are happy to bring back this Long Island tradition and hope everyone is excited to see our new displays” said Amanda Sanderlin, Director of Events at BOLD Media, the parent company operating the event in Riverhead. “This holiday season we plan on bringing back tens of thousands of people into Riverhead, and while they’re here they will shop and dine throughout the town. Based on the response we saw last year, we can’t wait to show attendees new displays and offer photos with Santa” In addition the Riverhead Chamber of Commerce has applauded the effort to bring back this family-friendly tradition to the residents of Suffolk County and are hopeful that the event will bolster the local economy during the pivotal holiday season. All-in-all, the Riverhead Holiday Light Show is expected to be the largest event this holiday season in Suffolk County.

This year, they’ve partnered with Hotel Indigo and Bistro 72 to provide a top-notch Santa’s Village. Santa will be available to talk with children, giving them an opportunity to make their case for why they’ve earned their spot on the nice list this year. Admission to Santa’s VIllage is free. Professional photos are available for purchase. Car-load tickets are on sale now for $23 online at

Tickets purchased online will be valid any day the show is open. Tickets will also be available at the door for $25, although availability is not guaranteed. Photos with Santa are available starting at $22 for two prints, a holiday frame, and a high resolution digital download.
