Mooresville Christmas Lights:
191 Scanlon Dr., Mooresville, NC 28115 ?? This is located in Curtis Pond neighborhood and is our FEATURED IMAGE. The Broy family suffered a terrible fire that burned many of their display pieces. We have never seen so many decorations in one yard – EVER! For displays without the musical show – this one is the clear winner! We would actually encourage you to drive all through Curtis Pond. There are many festive homes in this neighborhood. There’s one at 161 Madelia with great a timed musical lights display too, it even has a radio station! Be sure to check out 111 Millen Dr. and 112 Millen Dr., great displays there too and one has a movie screen!
920 Hampton Pl., Mooresville, NC. There are tons of absolutely MAGICAL
looking balls hanging in trees right near it that just made our jaws drop!) This is a MUST SEE!!
Corner of Perth and Normandy Road, Mooresville, NC 28117
181 Knoxview, Mooresville, NC 28117 (gorgeous white light display)
117 Castaway, Mooresville,NC 28117 (very busy and fun yard)
104 Normandy Rd., Mooresville, NC 28117 (WOW! – literally 100’s of blow ups and other
decorations in this yard)
Located in downtown Mooresville, NC the James Family Christmas lights show is a computer controlled show with music and lights. This is an annual show with over 75,000 lights. The sound is transmitted over a radio station which you can tune into at the show. This is a great show loved by the locals and is definitely worth seeing.
This video is by Adam Coleman who used to have this wonderful display. I left it here because it’s just so darn good! His family moved this year and is unable to get the light display up for 2019. He promises to have it up for 2020 though. 2013 Christmas Vacation Theme from Adam Coleman on Vimeo.

Troutman Christmas Lights:
Zootastic Park of Lake Norman, 448 Pilch Rd., Troutman, NC
Big light display, S’more’s pit, Pony Rides, Petting Zoo, Tiger and Giraffe feeding, Carousel
Rides, Pictures with Santa and one of our animal babies, and SO MUCH MORE!! They will also be offering wagon rides through the lights at no additional cost on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights. Admission $7.00 per person (includes driving through the lights and walking through the zoo).
Zootastic Park of Lake Norman always has a great display, is easy to get to and a great show! 448 Pilch Rd., Troutman, NC 28166
2.5 million Christmas lights, dancing light show, picture opportunity with Santa (and a tiger cub if you choose), petting zoo, pony rides, tiger feedings, s’mores and great memories! It takes about an hour to drive through the lights on busy nights. $6.00 per person
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 Park. McAdenville 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.
