The Countdown is On: 100 Days Until Christmas

Celebrate the Holidays at Hersheypark Christmas Candylane

It's hard to believe it but the countdown to Christmas is officially on with 100 days to go! This means there are less than two months until Hersheypark Christmas Candylane opens to the public. Tickets to the holiday attraction are on sale now, so you can buy online and save early on a visit on select dates from Nov. 13, 2020, through Jan. 3, 2021.

A Preview of the Merriest Event of the Year

Christmas Candylane will include some new and expanded offerings this year that are sure to put guests in the Hersheypark Happy holiday spirit. 

The seasonal celebration marks the first time that guests can explore Hershey's Chocolatetown during the holidays. The all-new region is home to Candymonium and the historic 101-year-old Carrousel (both of which will be open weather permitting), the iconic Kisses Fountain (which will be decked out in its holiday best), Starbucks (a great place to warm up on a cold night), Hersheypark Supply Co. and HP Collections (for holiday shopping), and more.

Of course, guests can enjoy holiday thrills on other select rides and coasters, including Laff TrakkSidewinderWild MouseWildcat and Cocoa Cruiser (weather permitting).

If that's not sweet enough, more than 5 million twinkling lights - the most ever - will deck the halls of Hersheypark in celebration of the season. The guest-favorite NOEL light show will return with more than 250,000 lights dancing to classic holiday tunes.

And let's not forget that Santa and his nine live reindeer, including Rudolph, will make a special stop in The Sweetest Place On Earth this year. Guests can see the reindeer up-close on a newly expanded viewing platform.
