–ABC’s primetime show, The Great Christmas Light Fight, will feature the Cambria Christmas Market on their seventh season, set to air during November and December of 2019.
Hosted by celebrity judges Carter Oosterhouse and Taniya Nayak, each episode features four families with over-the-top Christmas light displays, where one family is crowned the winner.
Season 7 will focus on contestants in the “Heavyweight” category, covering light displays in community spaces. Dirk Winter, owner of Moonstone Hotel Properties, a family-owned company and the parent company of the Cambria Christmas Market, and his family will battle against three other displays across the country for the Light Fight trophy.
The Cambria Christmas Market is the brainchild of Winter, who is a huge fan of German Christmas traditions. He and his family, who work at the event each night, are committed to putting on an amazing event for their guests.
“We are so excited and honored to be featured on The Great Christmas Light Fight! Our staff puts so much time and effort into our display and we are all really passionate about spreading the Christmas spirit,” said Mike Arnold, the Market Coordinator. “We hope viewers will be inspired to come and enjoy our 2 million lights, live music, train rides, stay the night in Cambria and experience the Christmas spirit we bring to California’s Central Coast.”
The Cambria Christmas Market takes place annually in Cambria, CA. Based on traditional European Christmas markets, it features up to 2 million lights arranged in exciting displays, local vendors in an open-air market, photos with Santa, a train ride and food and drink.
