Christmas Town

While the town of McAdenville cannot guarantee your vehicle will be totally safe, police do patrol the streets each night.

If I decide to drive through instead of walking, how long does it take  once I enter town...

That depends, in order for visitors to see the homes and the thousands of lights etc, vehicles move very slowly through town.  The route is approximately 1.3 miles long, on weekends it may take 30-45 minutes to drive the full route, most weeknights it will take less time.
