Lights on the Bay Brings Holiday Cheer

This year we also returned to Lights on the Bay, in Sandy Point State Park, to see what new lights have sprung up. It’s been several years since we’ve driven through the light display.

The Lights on the Bay display is a 2-mile scenic drive along the shore of the Chesapeake Bay with approximately 70 animated and stationary displays illuminating the roadway. Our holiday light show is sponsored by the Anne Arundel Medical Center.

We saw some of our old favorites — the Maryland themed crabs and oysters and a sea monster by the piers.

At one point, a giant teddy bear greats you.

I was captivated by the alien space ships. There were aliens throwing snowballs and aliens flying kites.. so much fun!

And of course, a variety of Christmas-themed displays, showing elves and Santa Claus, even driving a police car.

Overall, a fun display to drive through, and worth the somewhat long wait (on a Saturday evening) to enter.

Getting there: 1100 E College Pkwy Annapolis, MD 21409

Hours: November 19 2016 – January 1 2017, 5 – 10 p.m.
