Who says you have to be cold to enjoy the lights?

Christmas in Color, drive-through light experience, is now open in Provo, Utah and Kearns, Utah — which means you enjoy the show while cutting Jack Frost out of the equation. With one million LED lights, the display takes about 25 minutes to leisurely drive through in your toasty, warm car.

Expect your eyes to join in their own version of “The Nutcracker” as they dance from light fixture to light fixture trying to take it all in.

An electric display, Christmas in Color plays to the tunes of the popular Trans-Siberian Orchestra along with other Christmas carol classics. At the entrance, attendants will instruct you to tune your channel to a local station to enjoy the show with synchronized music and lights.

Christmas in Color was co-founded by Richard Holdman, who created a musical Christmas light display at his home is Pleasant Grove, Utah in 2006 that backed up traffic for two miles. The “Amazing Grace” light display garnered so much attention that the creators of the Midway ice castle opened a safer light display in Utah last year and is now opening its second location in Utah this year.

Christmas in Color has two locations: Provo, Utah (4400 Center Street) and Kearns, Utah (directly next to the Olympic Oval on Ed Mayne St.). The display is open Monday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. It runs through Dec. 31.
