Life University -  Marietta

LIFE introduced the Lights of LIFE in 1989 as a gift to the local community, and it has now grown to be one of the most popular light shows in the Southeast, attracting nearly half a million spectators from the surrounding region. Cars, vans, and buses cruise through the spectacularly illuminated campus each year, often stopping along the 1.5-mile drive to enjoy an array of seasonal entertainments.

Families are encouraged to come during the week to take advantage of the lower price, as well as to avoid the busier weekend traffic. The display opens at dark every night and runs until 9:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Each year, the display is a little different, making each experience unique. With more than one million LED bulbs, combined with the low cost, Lights of LIFE is the most affordable, quality light display in the metro area.

The Lights of LIFE is a zero-profit operation. Per-car fees go to offset the cost of electricity and those associated with ongoing operations. Fees for individual goods and services are at the discretion of the vendors.
