My family and I love holiday time! 


There are so many traditions and fun activities for our family to participate in.  A few years ago, after having moved to Johnson City, TN from Chicago, our family attended our very first Speedway in Lights event.  We had heard a lot about it from the locals and were so looking forward to taking our 2-year-old son. 

Let me tell you…it did NOT disappoint!! 
We had such fun the first year that we decided to go back every year now as part of a new family tradition! 

If you are near the Tri-Cities area from now through January 3, 2015, I highly recommend squeezing this trip in amidst the rest of your holiday happenings.  In my opinion, there is no better light display than the one at Bristol Motor Speedway! Bristol Motor Speedway’s “Speedway in Lights” is the region’s largest light show! 
Admission allows you to drive along the Speedway’s four-mile course, viewing this famous display of over two million twinkling lights!  You will even get a chance to lap the race track and feel that infamous incline!
More family fun awaits you in the infield.  There you will find a carnival-like atmosphere, complete with a merry-go-round, as well as various snacks and sweet treat offerings for sale.  Additionally, the Speedway boosts the region’s only ice rink, as well as a 300-foot “Chill Hill” of tubing fun!
The best part of this holiday experience is that all proceeds benefit local Tri-City children’s charities, and that makes everyone feel good!  :)
While you’re celebrating at the Speedway, be sure to check out The Shields Team’s local listings as well!  Go to www.tricityrealestateforsale.com to see properties for sale in this area!

So, if you are feeling jolly, do as we do…put your kiddos in their pjs, load them into the car, and head to Bristol Motor Speedway!  If you’re anything like my family, we even stop off for Chick-Fil-A on the way and eat our dinner as we gaze upon this remarkable light display!  I am confident that you and your family are sure to enjoy the merry music, fun festivities, and colorful scenes of the season.
