To keep the spirits up, Walmart decided to launch a drone light show this year. The all-new magical experience called the “Walmart Holiday Drone Light Show,” will come to select communities across the country. But, for those not fortunate to live close, the drone show will be live-streamed as well.
Nearly 1,000 Intel drones power the Walmart Holiday Drone Light Show
The retail giant advertises the “Walmart Holiday Drone Light Show” as a “free and contactless experience that will bring your favorite holiday songs alive in a way you have never seen before.”
Almost 1,000 Intel drones will be creating 3D seasonal shapes and characters, like snowflakes, reindeer, snowmen, and holiday presents, choreographed to a soundtrack of classic and modern holiday favorites, from Frosty the Snowman by Bing Crosby to 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, chief marketing officer at Walmart, said. “From our summer movie drive-in to our Fall gameday and Halloween experiences, we’ve been finding ways to help families enjoy seasonal traditions in a year when they thought it might not be possible.”
From Dec. 4-20, the “Walmart Holiday Drone Light Show” will visit:
- Fri., Dec. 4: Kansas City, Kansas at Kansas Speedway
- Sat., Dec. 5: Dallas, Texas at the Cotton Bowl
- Wed., Dec. 9: San Antonio, Texas at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
- Thurs., Dec. 10: Doswell, Virginia at Kings Dominion

Families can visit www.WalmartDroneShow.com starting on Mon., Nov. 23 at 5:00 p.m. ET to reserve free tickets to watch the show from the safety of their own car or a designated viewing area right next to their car. When confirmed, families will receive an email with a QR code, which will grant their vehicle entry on the day of the event. Tickets are available while supplies last.
The joy and wonder of the “Walmart Holiday Drone Light Show” isn’t limited to just these communities. Any family can be wowed as the drones paint the sky with holiday cheer by tuning in to a live broadcast of the light show on Walmart’s Facebook , Instagram, and TikTok channels on Sat., Dec. 5 at 7:40 p.m. ET.
Intel is using its newest drone light show technology to brighten this holiday season for families across the country through the “Walmart Holiday Drone Light Show.” Blurring the boundaries between art and technology, each Intel drone serves as a pixel of light that paints the night sky with dynamic 3D animations to create a vivid and truly unforgettable story.
