2017 Christmas Lights and Shows Around Lake Norman

Real Estate Broker/Owner with SoJax Realty

Merry Christmas!  Every year we are proud to bring you an updated list of Christmas light displays around our area.  This year we have over 40 just in the Lake Norman area!  We hope that you enjoy seeing these as much as we do. This list is updated frequently so be sure to check back from time to time.

The top 5 are listed and then they are broken down by area.  PLEASE!  If you have others to share let us know so we can add to this list for all to enjoy.

I'd also like to add that there are several HUGE displays at parks, etc.  The only one in the Lake Norman area is Zootastic; but, if you are up for the drive, I highly recommend going to Winston-Salem and seeing the lights at Tanglewood ParkMcAdenville is another one that many people like to take a drive out to go see.  That's an entire town lit up and it's FREE!  There's also the Charlotte Speedway but that is a bit pricier.  This blog focuses mainly on smaller, private displays in the Lake Norman area but I didn't want to leave out those large displays that are so popular.

#1  Coleman Lights (Big animated show)  Located at 7661 Natalie Commons Dr., Denver, NC 28037

#2 – 191 Scanlon Dr., Mooresville, NC 28115

This is located in Curtis Pond neighborhood and is our FEATURED IMAGE.  We have never seen so many decorations in one yard – EVER!  For displays without the musical show – this one is the clear winner!
