Must See Holiday Lights around OTP

Driving around town and seeing “holiday lights on display” is one of those great and timeless activities that makes everyone say, “WOW!”  Everywhere in the USA, some families or neighbors step up and put their home or street on display.  Check out these local areas that 11Alive featured after realtors for Redfin Corporation reported back the best homes around town. Enjoy the Scoop!

The area around 1670 Gladewood Drive, in the Johns Creek subdivision of Hillbrooke, is also known to have a lot of festive homes. A few updates this year: The Mint Julep Christmas Display has now moved to Ball Ground, Georgia, and Christmas at the Stack’s will not be doing a large animated display in 2014.

Kennesaw: Residents in the Calumet West neighborhood, around 1045 Peace Dr NW, decorate their homes to raise money for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. While you’re in the area, be sure to stop at Meckley Family Xmas at 4291 Edgewater Drive, which has more than 30,000 lights timed to music.

Dallas: There are several Griswold families in Dallas, Georgia, including Felix Family Christmas Lights at 224 Oliver Overlook, Aubuchon Lights at 28 Southshore Pass and Riley’s Rockin’ Christmas 2014 at 1Severn Way.486269_424483460939250_24135242_n

Decatur:  One must-see home in Decatur is Christmas in the Grove at 1428 Oak Grove Dr. It has more than 115,000 lights and was featured on ABC’s “The Great Christmas Light Fight” last year. Each year, Decatur hosts a holiday display contest called Decorate Decatur, so many residents get into the holiday spirit.

 Cumming: Don’t miss Blink Midwinter, a synchronized light display at 7020 Cole Ct . You should also check out the Ashebrooke subdivision, which raises funds for charity through its Night of Lights event each year. The subdivision is located around 4905 Laurel Ridge Dr. Note that Christmas in Cumming will not be doing a display this year. The Night of Lights big event was Sunday Dec 14, but the neighborhood is still lit up.

Also, a few Scoop fans told us about Cagle’s Dairy this year that has the Holly Springs Light show.  Showtimes tonight 6:00 – 11:00. The shows start on the half hour (6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, etc) and last for approximately 20 minutes.
