Buckle up buttercup – you’re in the ride of your life with the first World of Illumination debuting in Marietta. The name of the themed drive through light extravaganza is Candy Rush.
World of Illumination might be new to Atlanta but there are a couple other options that have been around for a couple of years. Each theme park has its own special theme. But they all feature at least two million lights, yes you read that right, a Christmas light display in Atlanta with 2 million lights!

Well imagine if it came to life! Or, if you are like me, you love cheesy holiday movies. I don’t know, it just gets me in the Christmas sprit. This extraordinary Atlanta holiday light show will make you feel like you are in a holiday Hallmark movie!
