Tree Lighting Celebration

The state line will come alive for Carowinds' nightly WinterFest Tree Lighting Celebration! A joyful song and dance spectacular surrounds the nightly lighting of the 70 ft. tall tree, one of the grandest in the Carolinas.

As the time nears, the performers cue the crowd to count down the moment to light the giant wonder filled with thousands of lights and decorations. When the countdown hits zero, Snoopy and his special guests insert a giant plug into an oversized power outlet, and the Christmas tree comes alive.

Arrive early to WinterFest and catch the incredible grand opening and illuminating display that's sure to amaze!
