While many holiday traditions may be curtailed in light of Covid, the Riverhead Holiday Light Show promises to be as bright as ever. The largest drive-through light show in Suffolk County opened on Thursday and runs through Dec. 30 at the Long Island Sports Park at 149 Edwards Avenue in Calverton.
Visitors can expect a 20 to 25-minute-long celebration, combining dazzle and dance in an immersive experience of light synched up to music that can be heard on a local radio frequency. Tickets purchased online are $23 per car, or $25 at the venue.
For now, it is open on Thursdays and Sundays from 5 to 9 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 5 to 10 p.m. The show will also announce an extended schedule in the coming weeks.
Tickets can be used for one visit on any open day, and attendees are asked to stay in their cars.
