The holiday attraction Glittering Lights will return to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway nightly from Friday, November 15, 2013, through Sunday, Jan. 5, 2014. The attraction will have more than 400 animated, energy-efficient LED lights along a 2.5-mile racetrack.
The attraction is back for its 13th season and its fourth at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. A new element that will debut on Friday, Nov. 29 is the Living Nativity made possible by the branches of the United Methodist Church. Another added attraction will be the Princess Fairy World and back for its second year will be the Avenue of Trees, a display of Christmas trees that pays tribute to the charities Glittering Lights has supported through Speedway Children's Charity.
Glittering Lights will be open nightly Sunday – Thursday from 5:30 – 9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 5:30 – 10 p.m. at $15/vehicle on weeknights and $20/vehicle Friday – Sunday and holidays. The Living Nativity will run every Thursday – Saturday through Christmas with additional dates on Sunday, Dec. 22 – Tuesday, Dec. 24. The first 15,000 vehicles will receive a gift bag filled with goodies. Purchase tickets at www.glitteringlightslasvegas.com or at Glittering Lights at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

"The beauty with Glittering Lights is that our visitors can bask in the holiday glow within the comfort of their vehicle," said Shannon Bentham, co-founder of Ivory Star Productions. "This year promises to be extra memorable with the addition of the Living Nativity, made possible by the branches of the United Methodist Church."
"This will be our fourth year hosting Glittering Lights and our passion for ensuring that this remains the best holiday experience in our city is stronger than ever," said Chris Powell, president of Las Vegas Motor Speedway. "Not only does this enable us to raise money for children in need here in the Las Vegas community, but this is also the ideal holiday activity for Southern Nevada's families."
A portion of Glittering Lights' proceeds will aid Speedway Children's Charities efforts in funding children's charities throughout Southern Nevada. Goodwill of Southern Nevada is also offering $2 off admission with a donation of gently used items at any of the 30 sites located in Southern Nevada or at the gates of Glittering Lights.
