Top 10 Most Impressive Christmas Light Displays in The Charlotte Region


It’s Christmas light season once again in Charlotte, and this year is turning out to be bigger and brighter than ever!

Most of the biggest displays are in the South East part of the Charlotte region, including Indian Trail and Matthews, but we have some other epic displays in Gaston County and up in Concord.

Here are the top 10 biggest Christmas light displays in the Charlotte region (in no particular order):

#1 Christian Family’s Home in Concord

The Christian Family lights have already been featured on, WCNC, and even on Charlotte Stories. The entire display is synchronized to over a dozen different songs.

The two-story home includes thousands of colorful twinkle lights which outline the windows, garage, trees and bushes all of which dance and pulse to perfectly timed music.
