Christmas lights are so magical and really put you in the Christmas spirit. Tonight we went to Christmas Town USA located in McAdenville, North Carolina. McAdenville is a super small suburb of Charlotte. The Christmas Town USA contains 375 lit trees and over 200 wreaths attached to city light poles. The lights attract visitors from all over the country and is one of the biggest light shows in the US. Christmas Town began in 1956 with the assistance of Pharr Yarns, the largest employer and land owner in the town, many trees and buildings in the town are covered in Christmas lights and some form of decoration. More than 300,000 vehicles visit each year. The lights are entirely maintained by volunteers from the community, and no admission is charged. Pharr Yarns picks up the electric bill for the event.

TIP: We arrived before it was dark…aka before it became super crowded. We were able to park at the McAdenville Elementary School and walk the sidewalks and enjoy the lights.
Enjoy the photos! (excuse the fact that some are blurry…I had to hold my not so little baby the whole time)
It is really a sight to see! As you can see lots of people come! This was our 2nd time going and we really enjoy seeing all of the lights, the people driving in cars yelling out Merry Christmas, and the neighbors of the community coming together and making their sweet little town just adorable. I highly recommend walking or driving through!
