BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights Merry Mile

November 22, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm


2nd Street & the Boardwalk

Take a magical journey on the Virginia Beach Boardwalk at BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights Merry Mile! This Hampton Roads tradition begins Friday November 22 and continues nightly through New Year’s Eve December 31st . Illumination begins at 5:30 pm each night and continues until 11 pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 10 pm from Sundays through Thursdays.

Drive your vehicle ON THE BOARDWALK through Nautical, Holiday, and Adventure Lands with a soundtrack signal playing traditional Holiday music on your vehicle’s radio. Festive fish, musical crabs, and hard-working elves – all in brightly colored lights against the moonlit Atlantic Ocean – are the stars of BayPort Credit Union Holiday Lights Merry Mile. They are joined by light up Santa and a 40-foot tall Christmas tree erected on the Beach and in the beautiful Parks along the Virginia Beach Boardwalk. The light display includes archways along the entire length of the spectacular light display with fish swimming overhead and spectacular light tunnels to drive through. Military tributes to the region’s strong Armed Forces community are featured prominently throughout the display.

With BayPort Credit Union, enjoy member-exclusive discounts and perks and become part of a credit union that invests in their local communities.  “As we continue to expand on the Southside, BayPort is excited for the opportunity to sponsor one its most celebrated events”, says Stan Leicester, BayPort Interim CEO.
