The Brewers may be done for the rest of the year (*shakes fist at the heavens*), but American Family Field will keep the fun and festivities going with the arrival of the Magic of Lights drive-thru holiday lights display.
Running Nov. 24 through Jan. 2, the Magic of Lights will bring more than a mile of glowing holiday cheer and more than two million glimmering lights to the stadium's parking lots. Favorite displays from past Magic of Lights tours – such as "12 Days of Christmas," "Toyland" and "the Enchanting Tunnel of Lights" – will all be shining around American Family Field, along with several new themed lit-up layouts, including "Prehistoric Christmas," "Big Foot Monster Trucks," the "Winter Blizzard Tunnel" and illuminated "Mega Trees" decorated with colorful lights gleaming and glistening in time with favorite holiday tunes.
"We are always looking to expand the variety of events that come to American Family Field and its surrounding grounds, and we are excited to host the Magic of Lights for an extended run for the first time this year," said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers President-Business Operations, in a release. "This promises to be a terrific family entertainment destination throughout the holiday season."
When it begins in late November, the Magic of Lights drive-thru display at American Family Field will be open daily from 5-10 p.m. Tickets – which will be available for assignated dates – start at $25 per vehicle and go on sale beginning at 10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 18 at Magic of Lights' website.

It may not be the event we were hoping to see at American Family Field – but it's still a very nice thing. And what better way to distract yourself from that disappointing Brewers postseason appearance than bright pretty lights?!
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
