Peppermint Parkway

Circuit of The Americas (COTA) is excited to announce it will be debuting an all-new event to help the community celebrate the holiday season in a safe and festive way. Peppermint Parkway will invite Central Texans to experience a magical drive-thru on select nights from November 27 to December 27. The holiday spectacular will be a one-mile driving attraction that will immerse visitors in millions of holiday lights synchronized to joyful holiday classics.

Guests will experience the entire event in the comfort of their own cars. The journey starts when patrons follow this year’s special hosts Pepper and Mint on their journey down COTA’s Tunnel Road as they race to deliver their letters to Santa. The thoughtfully designed holiday experience will feature dancing elves and other festive entertainers strolling through dazzling scenes, transporting guests from gingerbread alley to an enchanted forest, and so much more.

The drive will feature an impressive 60-foot spiral light tree, giant light sculptures of beloved holiday icons, and an unforgettable finale featuring Santa himself. Hot cocoa and holiday treats will be available from drive-up concessions.

Peppermint Parkway will operate from 6pm-10:30pm. COTALAND and Peppermint Plaza will operate from 12:00pm-10:30pm on weekends and 5pm-10:30pm on weeknights. Visit for tickets and more information.
