Night of Lights OC

November 23, 2021

Night of Lights OC, a magical and interactive winter wonderland drive-thru experience presented by Winter Fest OC, is proud to partner with Power of One Foundation (POOF) to host its Annual Toy Drive this holiday season. 

Guests attending the Night of Lights OC drive-thru experience at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa are encouraged to bring a new toy from Nov. 26 through Dec. 12 to help POOF reach its goal of providing toys to 5,000 children in need in Orange County. 

Toys will be collected by the POOF elves in the entrance queue zone and will be distributed to qualifying low-income families on select event nights and other low-income communities in OC after Dec. 12.

Night of Lights OC kicks off the holiday season on Friday, November 26th, and runs through January 2nd. Following tremendous interest from the community and an already sold-out opening weekend, additional dates and time slots have been added throughout the run to welcome more families. The experience begins at 5 p.m. with limited ticketed time slots available until 10:00 p.m. (Sunday-Thursday nights) or 11 p.m. (Friday and Saturday nights).  Reserve your ticket now before they sell out.  Entry to the event is through online ticket purchases only at

Tickets start at only $39.99 per vehicle (up to five people) on select nights. Larger vehicle upgrades and VIP Silver Admission tickets are also available.

Power of One Foundation is a nonprofit organization with a focus on fighting hunger and poverty by providing food assistance and vital resources to vulnerable communities and individuals in Orange County and beyond. The foundation’s purpose is to empower residents in underserved areas to become leaders in their communities.
