Christmas Lights With Music in Charlotte 2008

This video of Christmas lights with music by Trans Siberian Orchestra is one of the best light displays I’ve ever seen. Charlotte used to have Christmas lights like this, but I don’t know if it’s been continued.

As technology continues to evolve, it seemingly affects all areas of our lives.  Christmas light shows have become increasingly complex and wondrous to see.  It’s no longer enough to simply drive around and admire the lights.  For some of the larger displays, parking is almost required so as to enjoy the entire spectacular show complete with music!

This particular display (alas, not in Charlotte) was the winner of the Planet Christmas contest in Frisco, TX in 2005.  It would be hard to top this one.  Has anyone seen anything spectacular and worth a drive in the Charlotte area?

    Those folks in TX do everything “Big” We used to live in Plano, which is just south of Frisco and the Christmas decorations were insane. I personally prefer a more traditional subtle approach, but that’s probably why I live “back East” in an older part of the country.

    I hope you get this reply because yes there is a display in Charlotte and an incredible one at that. Here is his website. http://www.c3inet.com/

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for the kind words!

    We have a HUGE Christmas light display that has over 80,000 lights set to music that you listen to in your car on 100.3 FM.

    It runs from 6-10 PM every night through New Year’s Eve.

    Last year we were able to donate over $3,700.00 to Victory Junction Gang (http://www.victoryjunction.org) due largely in part to the generosity of the people watching the show.

    The charity we selected this year is A Childs Place (http://www.achildsplace.org) – Stop by, say hi, and help the homeless children in Charlotte!

    We are located here:

    (When driving by, be sure to tune your radio to 100.3 FM to hear the music that the lights are synced to.)

    I saw Kevin’s lights last year – wonderful display! Well worth checking out, and a bonus that they are collecting for charity.

    Thanks for including the map Kevin!
