We love getting out during the holidays and taking in the festive decor around local neighborhoods. This year, we had the opportunity to enjoy a Christmas Wonderland as they drive along an actual NASCAR track at Santa’s Speedway. The Irwindale Speedway has been transformed into a festive drive-through experience the entire family can enjoy now through January 10th.
Mobile Illumination, the company responsible for the Grove, Universal Studios, and Warner Brothers’ Christmas Extravaganzas, created this family fun holiday experience that includes jaw-dropping lighting displays and festive holiday scenes. The best part, families can enjoy the scenery from the comfort of their own vehicle.
As families enter Santa’s Speedway between a pathway of California’s largest color changing display of palm trees, they will experience the exhilaration of driving on an actual NASCAR racetrack as they come across Santa’s Village with at elves hard at work, a land filled with Christmas sweets including 20ft tall illuminated lollipops, Rudolph’s Enchanted garage filled with Racecar Reindeers, a 100 ft long lit Christmas bow and light display, plus a scene worthy of grabbing Santa’s attention – the world’s largest free-standing light tree, measuring 110ft and made up of over 100,000 LED lights.
At the beginning of the speedway, stop pull to the side, and pick up some treats to enjoy along the route. Themed concessions include Christmas cocoa and pre-packaged holiday treats, an interactive scavenger hunt, as well as the opportunity to mail a letter to Santa and get an actual email back.
This experience is for all ages and is not to be missed. Tickets for SANTA’S SPEEDWAY can be booked by visiting: www.santasspeedway.com or by calling (626) 358-1100.
