McAdenville

How Did McAdenville Become Christmas Town, USA?



(From The 12/12/20 Show)  In 1954 Marilyn Monroe married Joe DiMaggio in New York City; Elvis Presley recorded his first single with Sun Records, “It’s All Right”, in Memphis, TN; and Dick Roberts, along with three other Pharr Yarn employees decided to “spruce up their town” for Christmas.
Sixty-six years later, that “town” is known as “ChristmasTown, USA” & hundreds of thousands of people and cars travel through McAdenville to view the legacy of the special players that made it possible.
Roberts speaks with the Carolina Outdoors, Bill Bartee, about the beginning, the support of Mr and Mrs Pharr & the tradition continuing during a Pandemic
