Walk through Olde Mistick Village’s winter wonderland from dusk until 9:30pm when over 4,000 luminaries light the walkways of the Village and Mystic Aquarium. Stroll through the Village and enjoy holiday decorations, shopping and live music throughout the night! Visit OldeMistickVillage.com for a full schedule of events.

Then, join us at Mystic Aquarium and enjoy this dazzling holiday tradition. Bring a non-perishable food item for each visitor and enjoy free admission. Hear Saxophone Santa as he serenades the crowd then get your picture with Santa – on dry land or while he’s diving with some of his elves – all while enjoying the splendor of holiday festivities at the Aquarium.

Seasonal entertainment and story tellers bring your holiday experience to life as you explore all of your favorite Aquarium exhibits.

Admission is free with one non-perishable food item per guest.
All food items will be donated to the Gemma E. Moran United Way Labor Food Center in New London.
