Circuit of The Americas presents Peppermint Parkway
Peppermint Parkway is a drive-thru event where guests can experience a spectacular, one-mile display of lights, music, and joy. The holiday event includes Peppermint Plaza, located in the Grand Plaza, featuring rides, food trucks, a meet & greet with Santa, Pepper, Mint, and more.
New this year, guests can share a kiss with loved ones in the Mistletoe Kissing Booth. Families can take a photo with Santa, write a letter to Santa, and travel to the top of the COTA Candy Cane, COTA’s 251-ft tall Observation Tower. COTA will also offer Twinkle Trams this year, a chance to ride in an open-air shuttle through the Parkway.
There will also be two new villages, including ONEderland, a whimsical world of giant illuminated mushrooms mixed with mesmerizing mosaic sculptures, and Twinkle Trail, a dazzling golden display of dancing lights.
Also new this year is the North Pole Palooza, a 15-minute nightly spectacular featuring Rockette-style performers before the crowd is invited to join them on-stage with Santa for the Santa Shuffle. There will also be a reading of “The Night Before Christmas” (by the big man in red himself) and a holiday dance number, complete with falling snow.
Race fans can also enjoy the Candy Cane Cruise, an exclusive opportunity that will allow guests to take their own cars for a parade lap on COTA’s world-famous 3.41 mile FIA-grade Formula 1 track.
