Currently, it’s hot outside. You’re probably sweating. It’s summertime, and the thought of the holiday season is not on your mind right now. But, we’re here to tell you it should be.
DC’s Nationals Park recently announced it will be home to an immersive Christmas experience later this year, opening in November. Called Enchant Christmas, it is being marketed as “the world’s largest Christmas light maze and market.” The storyline? “When Eddie accidentally sets Santa’s reindeer free, it takes the entire city to help him track them down inside Enchant’s Christmas Light Maze,” reads the website.
Enchant Christmas will be open from Nov. 22 to Dec. 29. Early bird tickets ($59.99) are on sale now through June 23, and include a presale access code for tickets; The Great Search storybook; a collectible Enchant ornament; a seasonal evergreen candle; and a 2019 Enchant advent calendar. Each ticket ordered with the presale code comes with complimentary ice skate rentals and hot cocoa. General admission tickets will be on sale starting Sept. 17.
We have to admit, the whole thing looks pretty magical:
Enchant Christmas will include Christmas trees that are 80 feet tall with massive ornaments, visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus, an ice rink, five light mazes, holiday-themed food and drinks, a bar, a Christmas market for holiday shopping and more.
Enchant also has locations in Seattle and St. Petersburg, Florida. To find out more information about the Enchant brand, visit enchantchristmas.com.
