i was under the impression that DSBG did a lighted christmas display that ran at night.

Is that not true?

That is why i was wondering if we could do both events

You may be cutting it close. Your biggest concern would be traffic before and after each event. Are you really patient?

SO really I would be better off going two separate nights?

If you want to see both for their Christmas lights, then yes you may want to make it into 2 seperate events. DSBG you can spend many hours there admiring the garden, and then lights.

McAdenville, as mentioned previously, is nice to park your car and walk. The main street area has many stores fronts to look at, and then my favorite is the lake area. All of the homes on Weslyn that are located in McAdenville village must decorate their homes according to the HOA covenents. So, grab a cup of hot Cocoa, and enjoy a walk looking at all the beautiful homes, lake, and stores.

Happy Early Holidays!!!
