As the sun sets at Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park this December, the holiday season comes to life with millions of twinkling lights, illuminated waterfalls, and peaceful lakeside trails. Holiday@Night showcases the park's spectacular gardens and welcomes back family favorites that have been a tradition for 14 years. Guests at Holiday@Night will enjoy ice skating under the stars, dancing along with the Peanuts gang in the live “A Charlie Brown Christmas” show, visiting with Santa, and indulging in a grand holiday feast with all the trimmings. Holiday@Night will be open December 1-3, 8-10, 15-23, and 26-31 from 4:00 to 9:00 pm.

During Holiday@Night, families can enjoy over 40 rides and attractions along with dazzling holiday lights throughout the park. The Marketplace will feature food, games, and crafts for all ages. Back by popular demand, the live “A Charlie Brown Christmas” show will be playing twice nightly at Lakeside Amphitheater. Santa will be in a new location this year, taking a break from the chilly North Pole to greet children in the tropical Monarch Garden greenhouse. Guests are also encouraged to take photos at #gilroygardensatnight selfie spots throughout the park.

A grand holiday feast is available for an extra charge and includes Roasted Turkey with Homestyle Turkey Gravy, Baked Ham with Raisin Sauce, Mashed Potatoes, Stuffing, Green Bean Almondine, Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, and Hot Dogs. Fresh-baked Apple Crisp and Hot Chocolate will also be available to keep everyone warm as they walk around the park.

General admission at the gate for Holiday@Night is $30, or as low as $20 when purchasing four or more tickets in advance online. Save even more by purchasing an Admission and Feast Combo ticket online for just $30. Gilroy Gardens 2018 Premium Passholders are admitted for free. Parking is $15.

Following Halloween@ Night in October and Harvest@Night in November, Holiday@Night is the third nighttime event featuring the spectacular gardens lighted seasonally for evening enjoyment. The park will also be open on New Year's Eve for special festivities and a spectacular fireworks show at midnight.
