What will I see

In the common areas of town

A large Nativity scene
In the front yard of the McAdenville Baptist Church 

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

In the center of Christmas Town 

A large lake circled with dozens of
Evergreens, draped with hundreds of red, green and white lights.

Historical McAden Mills Bell Tower....

Located near the lake 
towering high above our beautiful lights
stands the Historical McAden Mills 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....

160 beautifully decorated homes. 
Each home is uniquely decorated by the homeowner. 

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. 
However, 
when walking through, PLEASE stay on the 
sidewalks and never go in the yards or on porches of our residents.
 
The decorated homes are private residences,  decorated only for your pleasure, 
please be respectful to our residents while walking through Christmas Town.
