One of the country’s largest drive-through holiday light shows, “Miracle of Lights,” opened its seventh season yesterday at Bull Run Park in Centreville.

Jan Du Plain, an event spokeswoman, describes the 2-mile drive as a “fairy tale world lit up by a million lights.”

The opening festivities began at sunset with a lighting ceremony and sleigh rides for children.

The show is owned and designed by the Georgetown-based Events USA, which stages similar events around the country in which visitors drive through a lane to see arrays of holiday lights.

A percentage of the proceeds go to Special Love Inc., which plays host to events for children with cancer.

Among the new displays this year are “Santa’s Wood,” a depiction of Christmas in the forest, and “Planet Holiday,” which features a Christmas celebration in a spaceship.

The show will run through Jan. 8 and is open every night, except New Year’s Eve, from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. The cost is $12 per car, $25 for a commercial van and $50 for a bus.
