Some of the nicer things about Gaston County are the “good traditions”, such as the McAdenville Lights. “Christmastown” has been a joyful tradition for 52 years in McAdenville, drawing people from all over the world.

A few years ago, Steve Rankin developed a website, Christmas Town USA, that has promoted vistor participation. This website has driving directions and walking directions that will make the experience a lot of fun and minimize the hassles.

With the redevelopment of the old mill town, worries circulated that Pharr Yarns would discontinue the tradition. That worry was put to rest as the new houses have been built and new residents have embraced the slight inconveniences presented by millions of visitors each December.
