The Meadow Lights is the largest and oldest Christmas light show in Eastern North Carolina. We are a Family owned and operated business that started more than 40 years ago. In 1994 we built "The Old Country Store" to sell drinks and old fashioned candy. Since we have become one of the largest candy stores in the state specializing in Christmas and old fashion candy, carrying over 300 varieties. We display lights on over 30 acres and operate a train ride through 10 plus acres.
"The Meadow Lights" was started over 40 years ago when the owner, Mr. Roy D. Johnson, began decorating his home and yard for his children to enjoy. Each year he decorated a little more than the year before. It didn't take long before others in the community began enjoying the lights also. Each year as the lights grew, so did the number of people who came to see them. Since then, the lights have grown from a single decorated yard to over 30 acres of lights and from the community riding by to thousands from all over the state each year.
The Meadow Lights is operated by Mr. Roy D. Johnson with help from his family. Over the years his family has grown with the annual Christmas attraction. Mr. Johnson started decorating in 1969 for his young children. Now for all families to enjoy , including his own from his children to his great grand children.
