3. Ashebrooke Nights of Lights | Cumming, GA
5020 Luke Drive, Cumming GA 30040
Ashebrooke Night of Lights is a 1 night event taking place in Dec. with 300+ homes participating in a spectacular light display & luminaries lining the streets. Enjoy 6 miles of fantastic Christmas cheer! It was started by neighbors helping a neighbor in need and continues in the same spirit. Each year since its inception, Ashebrooke residents continue to reach out and help a neighbor or local community organization in need. The NOL effort not only provides financial assistance, but builds the community during the holiday season and beyond. Ashebrooke raises money within the neighborhood by selling simple sand luminaries and placing them along the streets and driveways. Over the years, the event has grown to add a hot chocolate station, a live Nativity, a North Pole with Santa Claus himself, and spectacular holiday light displays! The event also attracts Georgia residents from Forsyth County and beyond on nights other than the big event.
