Christmas Town USA
Each December, hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights turn this small mill town into a spectacular holiday display. Visitors stroll down Main Street surrounded by the sights and sounds of Christmas.
The history of the McAdenville Christmas Lights dates back to 1956, when the McAdenville Men's Club conceived the idea of using lights to decorate a few trees around the McAdenville Community Center. Nine trees were decorated the first year, and reaction to this early effort was so favorable that the number of trees increased each year until in 1998 more than 450,000 red, green and white bulbs on approximately 400 trees gave off a warm holiday glow to the town and surrounding area.
