What will I see

In the common areas of town

A large Nativity scene
Located in the business area, near the traffic light,

Over 250 Evergreens, covered with more than 
one-half million red, white and green lights.

In the center of Christmas Town 

 A large lake with a fountain along with
floating Christmas Trees.

Historical Bell Tower....

Located near the lake 
towering high above our beautiful lights
stands the Historical Bell Tower.
The Bell Tower was constructed in 1883.

To entertain our visitors who walk thru each December, 
seasonal music is played nightly
from the tower for all to enjoy.

OUR HOMES

Over 100 of our homes are beautifully decorated
just for you...our visitors.

WALKING THRU CHRISTMAS TOWN

Walking is a great way to see the Christmas lights,
the decorated homes and to hear the sounds of the chimes.

When walking, PLEASE stay on the sidewalks
The decorated homes are private residences, please be respectful while walking.

WHY WALKING IS THE BEST WAY TO SEE ALL OF OUR LIGHTS AND HOMES

DUE TO DEAD-END / NO OUTLET
TWO OF OUR STREETS ARE CLOSED TO ALL VEHICLES

CHURCH AND ACADEMY STREETS BOTH ARE IN
THE ROUND-ABOUT,  NEAR THE MCADENVILLE SCHOOL

However, FOOT TRAFFIC will always be welcome on
CHURCH AND ACADEMY STREETS
during our Christmas Lights
