There are just a few nights left to see the McAdenville lights.
Cars are lined up for miles to get in and enjoy some holiday festivity on Christmas Eve.
After Wednesday, the nationally-known light show goes dark until the 2013 holiday season.
The official Christmastown USA website recently posted a note saying more people are choosing to walk the route, and the pedestrian traffic is holding up cars. A number of visitors have waited for hours only to miss the lights. Stephanie Hopper and her daughter know exactly how that feels.
"We came on a Saturday and sat in line for three hours on 85, and finally when we got closer we asked the state trooper how much longer it would be," said Hopper. "He said, 'Ma'am, you might as well turn around because you're not going to see the lights tonight.'"
Not to be deterred, Hopper tried again on a Tuesday.
"We went straight through. There was no traffic at all," she said.
They went back because it's a family tradition, and Hopper thinks she knows why so many newcomers are making the trip.
"It's free. When you go to Tanglewood or Charlotte Motor Speedway, it costs."
The lights will continue to shine until Dec. 26. Lights go out each night at 9:30 PM. McAdenville locals recommend showing up as early as possible, before it gets dark, in order to avoid long lines of traffic.
