2019 Christmas Candylane Show and Entertainment Guide
Live Entertainment and Festive Lights Bring Holiday Cheer to Hersheypark
Christmas Candylane is the most wonderful time of the year at Hersheypark, as four million lights are twinkling; some coasters are running; the hot chocolate is flowing; and holiday tunes are playing. If a visit to Christmas Candylane is on your holiday to-do list, here is a guide to the merriest shows and sweetest entertainment offerings to put you in the holiday spirit.
NOEL Light Show
The guest-favorite NOEL light show features more than 250,000 dancing lights synchronized to classic holiday tunes. One of our favorite places to see the show is from Skyview, a gondola-style ride that soars right overtop of NOEL. Guests can even see the lights glistening off of the water from Spring Creek! Kissing Tower also provides a spectacular view of the more than four million lights that blanket the Park.
Times: Begins nightly at 5 p.m. with showtimes every half hour
Location: The Hollow
The Littlest Tree
Looking to escape the cold? Guests can warm up inside the heated theatre while enjoying the heartwarming holiday show, The Littlest Tree. The audience will witness Carl the Elf searching for the perfect family for his Christmas tree, Douglas, who is the littlest tree at Santa's Tree Farm.
Times: Vary by day. Please refer to the Hersheypark app for a list of showtimes on the day of your visit.
Location: Chevrolet Music Box Theatre
Our Friends from the Sea
Visitors may be surprised to know that our friends from the sea still perform at Hersheypark during Christmas Candylane, weather permitting. Mango and Cocoa, two harbor seals, present an entertaining and educational show.
Times: Saturdays and Sundays at 1, 2:30 and 4 p.m.
Other Christmas Candylane Entertainment
Some other sweet entertainment offerings are also included with admission to Christmas Candylane. Have you heard? Santa is coming to town! Children can meet Santa in his indoor heated Candy Cottage during all operating hours through Dec. 23. Across the way is an indoor photo stop where guests can snap a photo with their favorite Hershey Characters.
Santa's nine reindeer will also make a special stop at Christmas Candylane. Hersheypark is one of the only places in the Northeast where families can get an up-close look at all nine live reindeer, including Rudolph, during all hours of operation through Jan. 1. Guests can also enjoy skating near Santa's Reindeer Stables. A $3 skate rental fee is charged.
