The Christmas Town In North Carolina That Has One Million Christmas Lights On Main Street

There’s no place like home in North Carolina for the holidays. New memories and traditions are created each year as cities, towns, and attractions all over the state host events filled with holiday cheer. One town, in particular, seems to really go over the top with getting into the Christmas spirit. They decorate Main Street with more than a million lights and host merry events each weekend to share the fun.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Have you discovered the holiday cheer found in Forest City’s Christmas on Main Street yet?

Want to attend the lighting ceremony on Thanksgiving night? The joyful fun begins on Thursday, November 22nd at 6:00 p.m. (Lights will be turned on at 7:00 p.m.) After, take a spin around the ice-skating rink and enjoy complimentary cookies at Santa’s house. Sounds perfect!

For more information, see this page on the official Forest City website.
