Have A Jolly Time At Meadow Lights, The Largest And Oldest Lights Event In Eastern North Carolina

Suburban and rural America began setting out Christmas lights in droves in the 1960s as homes around the country began lining their eaves during the holidays with big, oversized, colorful bulbs. (Remember those??) Soon after, a North Carolinian in rural Johnston County followed suit and what began as a few lights around the house soon grew into a life long passion and even bigger displays each year.
