November 21, 2014-January 1, 2015
Shadrack’s Christmas WonderlandDrive through Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland at the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center in Fletcher (home to the NC Mountain State Fair). This award winning Christmas light and music extravaganza is a two mile maze filled with hundreds of thousands of LED lights performing in perfect synchronization with the Christmas tunes playing through your car radio. Featured among the lights are huge customized displays of the 12 Days of Christmas with a comical twist.

Drive slowly throught the maze with lots of twists and turns so you can view the displays from many angles. If you want to stop to enjoy, look for wide areas of the route to pull over out of the way of other drivers.

Shadrack hosted its first synchronized light show in 2007, and because of the tremendous response, has taken the show on the road. This spectacle takes light shows to a whole new level, integrating cutting-edge technology, lights, music and movement with all custom-built animated elements featuring 100% environmentally friendly LED lights.

At the end of the drive route, visit Santa’s Village with Santa Claus under a big tent. Refreshments like hot cocoa, S’mores, funnel cakes and more are available for purchase. Fun activities for kids include a Santa train, giant spider bungee jump and inflatables. Christmas Wonderland supports Toys for Tots.

With four shows in four states, the Shadrack Christmas Wonderland shows have gotten national media attention, and won a series of awards for their inventiveness and elaborate choreography. Their first show was in Bristol, TN. Other shows this year are in Sevierville, New Market, and Myrtle Beach.
