By Kristen Hampton - bio l email

MCADENVILLE, NC (WBTV) - The countdown is on for the 54th switch-flip on what's been dubbed 'Christmastown, U.S.A.'

The McAdenville Lights show features thousands and thousands of lights strung up on pretty much every tree in town.

The Gaston County town has illuminated the night sky during the month of December for 54 years.

This year, crews are already hard at work stringing trees, light poles, fences, and anything else that will hold lights.

The switch is set to flip to the on position on December 1st.
