There's a new drive-thru holiday lights show opening this weekend

And it supports a great cause.

Not familiar with the season's biggest trend? We'll enlighten you: Drive-thru Christmas displays have been popping up all throughout the New York area to ensure merry, bright and—most importantly—safe celebrations. 

This weekend, American Express Platinum Winter Lights will debut for the first time at Moorland Farms in New Jersey. Cardholders will have the opportunity to drive through two miles of twinkling lights, a recreation of American Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker and a drive-through snow globe, all while their journey is accompanied by holiday tunes from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDs.

Even better? This Christmas event is not just for fun—it's for a cause. Proceeds will benefit the American Ballet Theatre and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDs. To support Shop SmallⓇ, AmEx will also work with local businesses like Willow & Olivia and David Bradley Chocolatier to curate a selection of winter treats. Tickets are $15 per car and time slots are from 5:30–10pm are available from Dec 11–13 and Dec 18–20. 

When you arrive home from the festive (and socially distanced) fun, be sure to get cozy on the couch with hot chocolate (extra marshmallows) and enjoy one of the best kids' Christmas movies of all time!
