Local Christmas Light Displays


Griffin Brumbelow, Writer

One of the most iconic Christmas traditions is driving around and looking at Holiday light displays. Luckily, there are several fantastic displays in our local area to enjoy. The most well known local display is definitely the Gaddy’s Family Christmas Light Extravaganza. This epic display opened Thanksgiving night and will continue nightly from 6:00-10:00 p.m. until January 1st unless there is rain or severe weather. The display is located at 898 Sandy Creek Rd. Fayetteville, GA 30214. This is a very popular show, so plan to be in traffic for a while.

Finally, the best musically animated light show in the southside is located in Fayetteville as well! Burton’s Light Show thrills visitors with amazing musical selections. According to Burton’s website, “We have had static displays for many years. 2009 was our first attempt into the “Animated Music and Lights Christmas Display” world.” This year, Burton’s has over 40 minutes of music! You can visit Burton’s Christmas Lights at 165 Stafford Court, Fayetteville, GA 30215 from 5:45-10:00 p.m., weather permitting. Please stay in your vehicle and have some patience, as the traffic can be challenging.  Don’t miss out on these festive Christmas events!
