The quiet little town of McAdenville, which lies along the South Fork River in Gaston County, comes alive in spectacular fashion each year as Christmas draws near. Almost overnight, the small textile town is transformed into “Christmas Town USA.” The history of the McAdenville Christmas Lights dates back to 1956, when the McAdenville Men’s Club conceived the idea of using lights to decorate a few trees around the McAdenville Community Center. Nine trees were decorated the first year, and reaction to this early effort was so favorable that the number of trees increased each year until, in 1998, more than 450,000 red, green and white bulbs, on approximately 400 trees, gave off a warm holiday glow to the town and surrounding area.Admission: Free to view the Christmas lights. There is a registration fee for the 5K on Nov. 30th.
