Featuring the latest in digital video technology, sound, and lighting, the Light Show will dazzle guests with its vibrant colors and dynamic animations. Using state-of-the-art projectors and a combination of 3D mapping techniques, this high-definition show will be the most visually stunning production yet.

The NEW Music Across America Drone & Light Show offers an escape to a world of pure magic and exhilaration. Embark on an unforgettable cross-country journey and experience the ultimate musical extravaganza! The show kicks off with sensational music tracks that will have audiences singing, dancing, and moving to the rhythm from start to finish.

Experience the magic as amazing overhead lasers reach all the way to the back of the lawn, painting the night sky with a symphony of vibrant colors. Be immersed in a multi-sensory adventure as mesmerizing visuals sweep guests through a realm where music and lights unite. Get ready for a show like no other, featuring a stunning display of 250 choreographed color-changing drones creating detailed shapes and patterns in the sky, breathtaking flame cannons shooting flames 100 feet in the air, and a fireworks finale that will light up the night sky, filling it with an explosion of joy and wonder. It’s the perfect grand finale for an extraordinary evening of music, lights, and shared memories.
