Bertie County seems destined to become a Christmas Wonderland, with the Pocosin Lights, a second “Christmas Wonderland,” becoming a local holiday hotspot.
Located at 303 Pocosin Road, Windsor (near Askewville), the colorful holiday lights glow as you get closer to the driveway. A circular road through the property allows you to move through and admire the festive vignettes without leaving the comfort of your car.
However, I could not resist parking and walking to get a better look at the charming decorations. Sorry. Not sorry. My family enjoyed the drive-through of the Pocosin Lights that much! I just had to get a closer look at all the festive scenery.
They had the Christmas music cranked up to enjoy, much to my delight when I stepped out of my vehicle.
Here are a few of the images I captured:
How many Pocosin Lights light up the night?
According to their Facebook page, they started the season with approximately 40,000 lights with a recent addition of 1,100 lights and several characters added since my visit on December 5th. The property is large, and it appears the family is trying to close those gaps at a record speed.
You can visit them each evening from 5 pm until 11 pm, weather permitting. If you have any questions regarding the weather conditions, check out their Facebook for an update.
Recently, we explained how the Hoggard lights will transfer to the town of Windsor next year. Plus, this light show adds on every year. Is a new mini-tourism industry emerging in Bertie County? It appears Bertie citizens are vowing to turn us into a Christmas Wonderland. The future of Christmas looks brighter than ever in Bertie County.
