What a beautiful display of lights and music. Highly recommend this for families and kids of all ages. Well worth the modest entrance fee.

We had never been....and we have been missing out....this was well organized....and beautiful. You ride a boardwalk tram complete with music timed to the displays. They obviously put in a lot of work on this and it shows. I want to see it again in the snow if the weather cooperates.

Besides the lines being a little unorganized they really had this place together. We were in and out in no time and for it being off season there had to be over a thousand people there to view the lights. Very good atmosphere and a great group of people who pulled this event together.

The Winterfest of Lights was worth the 5 dollar fee. The trolley ride through the trail of beautiful lights really puts you in the holiday spirit. The crowds were heavy, but the line moved pretty fast.

We were in Ocean City for the Thanksgiving holiday and decided to enjoy the first weekend of Northside Park's annual holiday light show in the park. We attempted to see the attraction on Friday evening but the wait was too long (hours of waiting outside)so we decided to wait until the following night. I'm so glad we did! First, we... More

We got our tickets at the Holiday fair at the convention center on the day after Thanksgiving and then went to the park after dinner, around 8:30. There was a line to get onto the tram, which took longer than the actual tour of the lights. You take a tram through the lights, which is good in a way because... More
