Since the Christmas season of 1956, McAdenville, NC has welcomed thousands for it's Holiday revelry. Now referred to as Christmas Town USA, this small town of less than a thousand permanent residents, holds nothing back when it comes to showing their Christmas spirit.
Elaborate decorations and lights adorn this town and festivities gallore run throughout the season. Beginning with the Christmas Town 5K, the Yule Log Parade and the Christmas Town Festival, you'll be sure to find a jolly time whenever you visit this town during Christmas.
The Yule Log Parade begins Friday, December 19, 2014 at 5:30pm in front of Pharr Yarns Main Office, in the heart of McAdenville. This Christmas Tradition allows residents and visitors to follow the Yule Log which is pulled by children on a sled through town to Legacy Park. The log is lit after being placed in the open fireplace. At this point, the crowd joins in singing Christmas Carols and all the children rustle to get a hand on the rope to help pull the Yule Log through town to it's final destination.
One of the most visited spots in Christmas Town is the lake. More than 30 beautifully lit trees border this lake and surround a fountain. Visions of red, green, blue, and amber magically come to life at night with their reflections dancing off the water showing Old Man Winter blowing snowflakes into the air.
More than 200 wreaths adorn the town and lights align almost every nook from beginning to end. Christmas songs ring loud throughout town from the 80 feet tall steeple on McAdenville Baptist Church. It truly is a Winter Wonderland! For directions or more information check out their website here.
