The South's largest holiday light show is bringing some famous faces to the infield. Just in time for Christmas, Character Nights return to the Pinnacle Speedway in Lights Powered by TVA.

Superheroes, princesses and more will visit Christmas Village every Wednesday in December from 6-8 p.m. Appearances include:

  • Wednesday, Dec. 2: Princess and Beast Night
  • Wednesday, Dec. 9: Despicable Sidekick/Intrepid Explorer Night
  • Wednesday, Dec. 16: Ice Princess Night
  • Wednesday, Dec. 23: Glass Slipper Night
  • Wednesday, Dec. 30: Superhero Night

Now in its 19th year, the annual light show has become a favorite for families throughout the region. Visitors to Pinnacle Speedway in Lights begin their journey at the Bristol Dragway entrance just off Highway 394. The five-mile route features more than 200 individual light exhibits decorating the storied banks of the half-mile track, the straightaways of legendary Thunder Valley, and one hundred acres of BMS property.

Thousands of guests complete the course each year, and for those with tight schedules, BMS has a new, speedier drive-through option. Jingle Bell Lane is a limited availability, fast-pass option that allows visitors with tight schedules to bypass the wait line and move to the head of the procession. Passes are available through the BMS Ticket Office at $40 per car and $55 per van, with available dates including Nov. 27-28, and Dec. 5, 12, 18-23 and 26.
