Each season the quaint town of McAdenville becomes a Christmas wonderland. Almost overnight, the little textile-town-that-could is transformed, attracting visitors from across the country. More than 375 trees and nearly all the community homes are lit in spectacular fashion with red, white and green lights. Over 600,000 annual visitors, both young and young at heart, walk along the wreath-lined route through the center of town. This true Christmas tradition has spanned nearly six decades.
