According to WIVB, the Festival of Lights will be returning this November and December to the Hamburg Fairgrounds.

However, there are some changes this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year's Festival of Lights will be strictly drive-thru. Guests will remain in their vehicles for the light show.

Tickets will also have to be purchased in advance.

There will be a new route for the Festival of Lights this year. It will include 50 acres of land, featuring 70 variations of light displays and light tunnels, via Erie County Agricultural Society CEO Jessica Underberg

“The Fairgrounds Festival of Lights has become an annual holiday tradition on the Fairgrounds in Hamburg for the last 16 years,” Underberg said. “With so many cancellations this year, we took a look at how the Event could be held in a safe and socially distant manner.  Thus, the Fairgrounds Festival of Lights, 2020 Style was created.”

Tickets can be purchased at all Tops Friendly Market locations, starting on November 1st. $15 per vehicle.

You can also purchase tickets online.

The event will be open every night from December 1st through December 31st, expect they will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
