The “Holidays in the Sky” drone and fireworks show kicked off last weekend at Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari and will run through July 31. Featuring 300 drones with displays up to 700 feet wide and a fireworks finale, the 15-minute show celebrates Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the Fourth of July.

“You can’t believe this show until you see it,” said Lauren Crosby, Fourth-Generation Owner and Director of Entertainment & Events. “Our talented camera crew does a great job, but there’s no comparison to seeing this in person. And it’s only here for one season. This show is one-of-a-kind, and you won’t believe what 300 drones can do.” 

For the best viewing experience, guests should arrive early at the German American Bank Party Plaza, in the Thanksgiving section, where the “Light Up the Night with DJ Illuminate” dance party show will take place. 

In addition to the drone and firework show, stunt dogs and their cast of human performers are performing at the Hoosier Celebration Theater daily through June 26, with shows each day at 2, 4, and 6 p.m. All season long, the park will rotate in new entertainment each week with specialty acts including a magician, juggler, ventriloquist, and more. On July 3 and 4, “Holidays in the Sky” will include additional fireworks and music will be added to the show.

Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari is resuming their annual Hire & Ride events on Tuesdays through the end of July. Lifeguards, ride operators, and slide attendants are eligible for up to $1,000 in bonuses. Those interested should visit HolidayWorldJobs.com.
