It all started in 1956, when the McAdenville Men’s Club along with Mr. W. J. Pharr, Pharr’s founder and president at the time, conceived the idea of using red, white and green lights to decorate the trees around the McAdenville Community Center.
For 2020, Christmas Town will introduce various pandemic precautions to ensure a safe and responsible seasonal celebration. Visitors can expect a Town that still shines with holiday cheer December 1 – 26 from 5:30PM – 10:00PM. Some of the Christmas revisions include a virtual Christmas Town 5K, no lighting of Christmas Town Lake, no tree lighting ceremony or parade. One thing that does remain constant is the Reason for the lights.
