JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! And with that comes fun holiday events all across the metro.

Below are some special events that could be fun for the entire family.

The Magic of Lights show will be on full display at the Brandon Amphitheater from November 18 until New Year’s Eve.

The display features more than two million lights showcasing all of your favorite Christmas themes and stories.

The way it works is you ride along a trail spanning a mile-and-a-half. On each side you have colorful lights blinking and dancing at you.

While the show is in town, roughly 20-thousand cars are expected to navigate their way through the vibrant trail.

Tickets are $19 online, $25 at the gate. It is open every day from 5:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m.

The Christmas by Candlelight Tour will take place at the Museum of Mississippi History, the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, the Mississippi State Capitol, the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion, the Old Capitol Museum, and the Mississippi Museum of Art.

It will happen Friday, December 2, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and will feature live music, holiday decorations, treats, model trains and shopping.
