The D.C. area is filled with a plethora of different holiday activities and tree lightings, but Enchant at Nationals Park might just be the brightest of them all.

Billed as the world’s largest Christmas light maze and village, the immersive experience features more than four million sparkling lights. But most notable is a dazzling Christmas tree that towers over the entire area.

“Our tree here at Enchant is stunning, if I do say so myself. It is a hundred feet tall. And you should see how we build it. It is absolutely magical to see the end result,” Enchant Christmas Company Manager Heather Gordon said.

The 100-foot-tall holiday tree — the tallest in the region, surpasses even the 60-foot Capitol and White House trees.

You can also experience the ice-skating trail, live entertainment, Santa visits, and a holiday shopping marketplace with crafts, gifts, and culinary treats, including festive holiday beverages and cocktails.

Enchant, which is produced annually on playing fields of major league sports stadiums and iconic outdoor spaces, runs through Jan. 1, 2023.
