Walmart is planning a free holiday light show featuring 1,000 Intel drones at Carowinds in Charlotte and a handful of other sites across the country in December. The retail giant will also livestream its show to anyone else who can’t visit in person.

The North Carolina performance will take place Dec. 16. If you want to attend in person, you need to reserve tickets here, beginning Monday at 5 p.m.

Walmart says the experience is "contactless," as you can watch the show from your own car or "a designated viewing area" next to your car.

The drone performance promises to pair lit-up versions of snowflakes, reindeer, snowmen and other characters with holiday tunes like “Frosty the Snowman” by Bing Crosby and “Run Run Rudolph” by Kelly Clarkson.

“After a particularly tough year, we want to help families end the year looking up. We want customers and communities to enjoy a moment of rest, peace and hope,” William White, Walmart’s chief marketing officer, said in a release.

Other planned shows across the country:

  • Dec. 4: Kansas City, Kansas at Kansas Speedway
  • Dec. 5: Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl
  • Dec. 9: San Antonio, Texas at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
  • Dec. 10: Doswell, Virginia at Kings Dominion
  • Dec. 13: Phoenix, Arizona at Phoenix Raceway
  • Dec. 16: Charlotte, North Carolina at Carowinds
  • Dec. 18: Sacramento, California at Sleep Train Arena
  • Dec. 20: Fayetteville, Arkansas at 112 Drive In

Walmart’s livestream for everyone will happen Dec. 5 at 4:40 p.m PT on the retailer’s Facebook, Instagram and TikTok channels.
