It’s that time of the year again.  The weather is getting colder, Christmas decorations are going up, and SilverFox Limos is taking you to see the Lights!!

Every year around this time we are fortunate to have some of the best Christmas Lights Displays in our area.  These places include the Billy Graham Library, Tanglewood Park, McAdenville, NC, Zootastic Park at Lake Norman, and Carolina Christmas at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  A great way to see the lights is in one of SilverFox Limos beautiful vehicles.

We are able to accommodate any size group.  This is perfect for families or groups of friends who want to enjoy the Christmas lights around town, but who don’t want to have the hassle of driving and parking.  SilverFox Limos give you the opportunity to enjoy the lights with a group instead of having to take multiple vehicles.  All of our chauffeurs are well experienced and know the best routes to take to get you to your destination.  Holiday Lights tours and our Holiday Lights Packages make a great early Christmas gift.

Christmas Town USA – McAdenville, NC

The Lights glow nightly in McAdenville, NC.  This years marks the 62nd Annual of Christmas Town USA. The more than 375 trees which were decorated last year range in height from 6 feet to more than 90 feet.  Only live trees are used. The number of  lights on individual trees varies with the height, diameter and fullness of the trees.  As few as 500 lights and as many as 5,000 lights may be used on one tree.

IMG_2454 - 1 - X - RSOne of the favorite spots for viewers is the lake which is situated near the heart of town.  Here are 33 trees, ranging in size from 12 to 40 feet, which ring the lake.  The reflection of the lights in the water adds to the beauty of the scene.  A fountain, located in the center of the lake, jets water 75 feet into the air.  Lights shining on the fountain go through a sequence of red, green, blue and amber about once every ten seconds.  At the lake, a 46 foot wide lighted image of Old Man Winter blows snowflakes into the air. While much emphasis has been placed on the lighting of trees, this represents only a portion of the effort that goes into the preparation for Christmas.   The town residents play a big part as they decorate their doors in original styles according to their own personal feelings.  This gives a special expression of “Best Wishes for a Merry Christmas” from the townspeople to their visitors.  A life-size nativity scene and life-size figures of carolers, complete with music, add to the effect. More than 200 wreaths adorn lampposts throughout the town.  Santa and his reindeer, a display that is nine feet tall and seventy feet long, are featured as part of the annual tradition.

Times are Monday – Friday from 5:30p to 9:30p and Saturday & Sunday from 5:30p to 11:00p. From December 1st – December 26th.  Click here for more information
