Visit the Brown Town Christmas Nights of Lights

Gulf Coast Electric Cooperative Communications Specialist Sunny Brown and her husband, Freddy, work hard every year to create a tradition the community loves: a winter wonderland of lights at their home, which they lovingly refer to as “Brown Town.”

The couple strings lights and sets up inflatables, figurines, and arches. Music adds to the festive environment. The display is most noted for its 25-foot snowman.

Candy canes from Candy Cane Lane are available for children.

In October, the couple starts preparing the setup by testing lights and sorting decorations, which Freddy has collected throughout his 25-plus years creating the display.

“We have had so many blessings in our life and are so thankful,” Sunny says. “Freddy and I invite you and your
family to our Brown Town Christmas Nights of Lights display at our home, beginning at 5 p.m. Thanksgiving night and continuing until after Christmas.”

The Browns say their display is a labor of love.

“Freddy and I are both very proud to be able to share some Christmas cheer from our family to yours,” Sunny says. “Come celebrate the holidays with us. Please feel free to share our invitation with all of your friends and family. May the joy of the Christmas season stay in your heart all year long.”

For updates, like the Facebook page “Brown Town Christmas Nights of Lights.” Display times are posted there. The display sometimes must be shut down due to inclement weather, so please check the page before you visit.

Brown Town is at 9304 North Holland Road in Southport. The Browns ask that you drive their circular driveway to enjoy the display. For safety, please do not exit your vehicle to walk through the lights. There are many wires, and they do not want anyone to trip. Thank you for understanding.
