Stunning Sparkling Lights Carmela’s Magical Santa Land Now Open
The holiday season has arrived at Carmela's Magical Santa Land Drive-Thru Park in Longview, Texas. One of East Texas' best-kept secrets is now open through January 3, 2023.
This is one of the most amazing places you can take your family with over 4 million dazzling lights and mesmerizing holiday-decorated lighted displays and specially themed areas. Whoville was one of my personal favorites at Carmela's Magical Santa Land with so many lights and colors it will blow your mind. Stunning!!!
All the music is synchronized with all the lighted displays and you can tune in to the music on your radio. I have never seen so many lights in the trees on the ground everywhere, it's beautiful. Pictures of this place do not do justice to what you will see up close and personal at Carmela's Magical Santa Land.
Character Lighted Displays
Lighted displays include Whoville house, Frozen Castle, Mickey Mouse, Ninja Turtles, and other characters.
Carmela's also has a walking trail, a gift shop where you can visit Santa Claus, and a vendor's barn where they sell handcrafted items, homemade fudge, t-shirts, and ornaments.
With Thanksgiving weekend a little over a week away, gather the family together and take the short drive from Texarkana to Carmela's. Now would be the best time to go before it gets too busy.
The best part about Carmela's Magical Santa Land is that it's FREE. Donations are encouraged and make sure you ask for a free candy cane on the way out.
