MCADENVILLE, N.C. —
Early voting started Thursday on an issue that could change how visitors enjoy Christmastown, USA. McAdenville's 405 registered voters will decide whether alcohol can be sold during the town's annual event. The town is known for its dazzling display of Christmas lights. The event has always been dry and opponents say alcohol would ruin the town's image. "I just don't see that it's going to help our image at all," said Mayor Farrell Buchanan. Supporters say liquor sales would improve the economy. "Allow McAdenville to have its own identity outside of December," said supporter Kevin Lamp. The referendum would not allow ABC stores or bars to sell alcohol. The owner of the town's only restaurant said he won't serve alcohol.
