LuminoCity Holiday Lights Festival is Returning to Randall’s Island

LuminoCity Holiday Lights Festival is Returning to Randall’s Island

The holiday lights festival is returning for the 2020 season on Nov. 27 and will be on display through Jan. 10.


There is no shortage of holiday lights festivals–or just holiday lights–in New York City. Between online learning, COVID-19 chaos, and all of the other stress in our lives this year, we are all in need of a little extra magic to make the holiday season special for our families.  LuminoCity Festival is returning to Randall's Island Park on Nov. 27 this year and will run through Jan. 10, 2021. And there will be way more to see than just lights!

This year, you'll walk through a 45-minute, narrative journey surrounded by beautiful lights and mesmerizing LED sculptures, reports Time Out New York. Each "land"—including Mysterious Forest, Dangerous Dunes, Forgotten Ruins, Hidden Land of Hria, and Mystical Moon Land—has its own set. Famous dog and cat "influencers," like Smoothie the cat, will be reimagined into light sculptures, reimagined as 12 zodiac constellations. 



The festival will of course take extra safety precautions to keep you and your family safe for the 2020 festival. Strict time slots and ticket capacities, masks, temperature checks, physical distance, sanitizing, and regular cleaning are some of the measures being implemented. LuminoCity also asks that you and your little ones do not touch the sculptures. 

Gates open at 4pm and close at 9:30pm. Tickets are available on LuminoCity's website now. General admission is $38 for adults, $22 for kids, and $32 for students and seniors. For general admission plus "Light the Night," which includes express check in, a limited-edition Lumi nightlight, and 15 percent off at the gift shop, it is $68 for all ages. Use the code LUMISEB25 to save 25 percent through 11:50pm on Oct. 11. Hurry, it's only for the first 500 tickets!
