“We turned on the lights on Thanksgiving Day,” Lee said. “If people enjoy pure Christmas light displays, then they will enjoy ours. We’re close to Kroger, so it’s a quick stop to and from Kroger.”
The Milledgeville Country Club (MCC) neighborhood Homeowner’s Association is also preparing to brighten up approximately four miles of streets with luminaries on each side, including Old Club Road, Long Acre Road, Sussex Drive, Sussex Court, Sussex Way, Windsor Way, Jeffrey Way and Hurst Drive.
“We’ve been doing the Christmas luminaries for more than 20 years,” said Bill Dyer, president of the MCC Homeowner’s Association.
The neighborhood streets will light up Sunday, Dec. 23 around 6 p.m. and riders, walkers and bicyclists can enjoy it until candles burn out.
“We have about 3,600 luminaries each year,” Dyer said. “About 130 residents in the neighborhood pitch in $6 a piece for the purchase of candles.”
Captain D’s provided bags for the luminaries and Fowler Flemister donated sand for the bags once again for this year’s holiday tradition.
“We thank the sponsors for making this possible,” Dyer said.
Other family-oriented Christmas light displays can also be seen at these suggested locations:
• Liberty Street
• Hancock Street
• Carrington Woods neighborhood
• Cords Bridge Road, off of Pearl Drive near Butler Ford on North Columbia Street
• Tractor Supply Company on North Columbia Street
• Scuffleboro Road in Putnam County
