Noccalula Falls + Glencoe Baptist Light Shows

Picture1troeopsms Geek Alabama Christmas 2012

Over the week I went to Gadsden for two big Christmas light shows.  I first went to the Noccalula Falls Christmas light show.  It was a huge turnout and it had a ton of Christmas lights and had even animals at the barn.  Too bad I did not see any deer in the pen.  Then I went to the Glencoe First Baptist Church Light show.  The church is transformed into a huge music synchronized light show which can be seen from U.S. 431.  And the Santa there was very funny.  Enjoy the pictures from the two events.
