Community invited to free drive-through Christmas lights experience at Saddleback Church

In celebration of the Christmas season, Saddleback Church is providing “Light of the World: Christmas Lights at Saddleback,” a free COVID-19 safe holiday experience for everyone to enjoy. Through the collaborative efforts of 4,400 church volunteers, Saddleback is sharing the joy of Jesus during these unprecedented times to bring the Southern California community together while social distancing.

Using half a million lightbulbs, the “Light of the World” drive-thru is approximately one-half mile long and will feature a 35-foot Christmas tree, a 25-foot Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman, and six light “lands,” including California Christmas, Winter Wonderland, Nutcracker, Christmas Village, Candy Cane Land and the Nativity Story.

The “Light of the World” show begins Dec. 1 and will be open every evening through Dec. 24 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., except on Dec. 7 and 14. Additionally, an estimated 4,000 gallons of free hot cocoa will be provided to guests. More than 20,000 cars are expected to drive through the lights exhibit during December.

Those interested in visiting the “Light of the World” exhibit must register to see the Christmas lights at https://saddleback.com/events/Christmas/2020/registration.
