What to Keep in Mind
McAdenville is a small town and there is only one route through it, so you WILL have to wait in line. So make sure you plan ahead and allow yourself plenty of time. The town lights all operate on automatic timers, which means they will shut off at closing time each night, regardless of how many cars are still in line. You can plan on taking about 30 to 45 minutes to drive the full route through town.
Although you can just drive through the lights, walking is recommended to see them up close, as well as to enjoy the sound of the church bells. So be sure to wear comfortable shoes, wear a coat and if you are bringing a pet, keep them on a leash. Since the homes that are decorated are private residences, walkers also need to stay on the sidewalks and not go into the yards or onto the porches.
