“Nights of Shimmering Lights” is the best holiday light show in Tampa Bay is in Dover.

This incredible holiday light show can be seen from the comfort of you own car as you drive though 500,000 lights twinkling and shimmering to the beat of holiday music you listen to on your own car stereo.

The self-paced drive takes you through more than 600 dazzling illuminated tunnels, wire-frame displays and dancing LEDs lights that pulse and blink with the holiday music broadcast from a small FM radio station straight to your own car.

“Nights of Shimmering Lights” is the brainchild of two Hillsborough County residents who enjoy Christmas lights and spending quality time with their children. Their goal was to use thier computer skills to create a low-cost family holiday entertainment.

This is the first season “Nights of Shimmering Lights” has entertained and charmed Tampa Bay. This dazzling show in Dover is open Thursday – Sunday starting at sunset. The cost is $20 a car load, buses are extra. Cash and all major credit cards accepted
