Looking for the biggest, best Christmas lights around Charlotte?
The folks behind Lights at the Quarter, whose display near PNC Music Pavilion is seriously amazing, shared this list with me.

All these displays are put on by regular people, at their own expense, and it takes an incredible amount of time and creativity. Many are synchronized to Christmas music. If a radio station is listed, tune your car radio to that station to listen to the coordinated music.
Courtesy tip: Be considerate of these folks’ neighbors. If a website or Facebook page is listed, make sure to visit and check out the hours, start dates and any additional information that you need to know.
Now, let the holiday journey begin:
Hillside Avenue in Myers Park
The neighborhood has a tradition of creating chicken-wire Christmas balls and hanging them from tall trees. It’s very impressive.
Sherwood Forest Drive (off Colony Road)
Several big displays in neighborhood, especially 7323 Sherwood Forest Drive, where Santa is outside handing out candy canes. There’s Christmas music and a collection for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
