The quiet little town of McAdenville, which lies along the South Fork River in Gaston County N.C., comes alive in spectacular fashion each year as Christmas draws near. Almost overnight, the small textile town is transformed into “Christmas Town, USA.” A Christmas tradition in the town for many years have been the decorating of the entire town in Christmas lights. The lights attract visitors from all over the country and is one of the biggest light shows in the US. Begun in 1956, 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.
