With the start of the 2020 Magic of Lights, the popular drive-through, family-friendly holiday lights extravaganza at Daytona International Speedway just a week away, Speedway President Chip Wile recently presented the AdventHealth Daytona Beach Foudation a ceremonial check for $15,558, as a result of the success of the traditional event a year ago.
The donation, benefit the patients and programs at AdventHealth facilities throughout Volusia and Flagler counties, was presented to Ed Noseworthy, CEO of AdventHealth Daytona Beach, and David Weis, COO of AdventHealth Daytona Beach.
Magic of Lights returns to the World Center of Racing for the fourth consecutive year, beginning next Friday, Nov. 13, through Jan. 2, 2021. Magic of Lights will continue to bring a dazzling display of more than one million lights, all viewed within the comfort and safety of guests’ vehicles on the grounds of the iconic venue.
Among light displays for 2020, favorite traditional displays include the Enchanting Tunnel of Lights, 12 Days of Christmas, 200-foot Candy Cane Lane and Snowflake Forest, as well as Ornament Passing and Joy to the World.
Families will get twice the fun this year as the “Double Drive Through” again will be offered on every Wednesday (excluding Dec. 23), allowing guests to drive through twice at no additional cost on the same particular evening. Magic of Lights will be open nightly from 6-10 pm (except Nov. 26-29 from 7-10 pm).
Tickets are on sale now. Magic of Lights will continue to offer, and encourages, contactless ticketing by allowing customers to purchase tickets in advance by going online at http://tickets.magicoflights.com/daytona. Like in the past, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the AdventHealth facilities throughout Volusia and Flagler counties. Ticket prices include:
- $25 per car in advance, $30 per car at the gate weekdays (Monday through Thursday), or $35 on weekends (Friday through Sunday). Tickets purchased in advanced can be used seven days a week and are contactless.
- Oversized vehicles such as limousines or vans for 15 passengers or more will be $40 per vehicle in advance, $45 per vehicle at the gate and $50 on weekend dates. Tour buses cannot be accommodated.
Guests are set to enjoy spectacular displays, using the latest LED technology and digital animations, from the comfort of their vehicle. Tickets purchased online in advance can be used on any date, allowing customers and family the flexibility on when they choose to attend. The experience will include a drive behind the Ticket and Tours Building, through the state-of-the-art motorsports facility, and conclude in the Midway display area. Magic of Lights encourages guests to continue to adhere to local guidelines in maintaining social distancing.

About Daytona International Speedway
Daytona International Speedway is a state-of-the-art motorsports facility and was awarded the SportsBusiness Journal’s prestigious Sports Business Award for Sports Facility of the Year in 2016. Daytona International Speedway is the home of “The Great American Race” – the DAYTONA 500. Though the season-opening NASCAR Cup Series event garners most of the attention – as well as the largest audience in motorsports – the approximately 500-acre motorsports complex, also known as the “World Center of Racing,” boasts the most diverse schedule of racing on the globe. In addition to at least nine major event weekends, the Speedway grounds are also used extensively for events that include concerts, civic and social gatherings, car shows, photo shoots, production vehicle testing and police motorcycle training.
