Holland Road Lights is a unique experience. The owners have put together a helpful tips list (which I have included below) to ensure you do not miss out!  

Located at the corner of Holland Road and Powell Drive in Fuquay Varina - come visit the light show!! Runs daily from dusk to 10:30.

409 Holland Rd, Fuquay Varina
A few notes for visitors:
1. We have music on a small speaker, as well as broadcasting on FM 90.9. Feel free to pull over and roll your windows down on Holland Rd or Powell Drive and get your car radio blasting!
2. A good driving approach since we have the show in our backyard as well this year is to enter Powell Drive from England Avenue and then make a right on Holland. Please view from outside the picket fence or the end of our driveway - there are wires everywhere inside the fence and it’s a trip hazard. You can view from your car or feel free to get out and dance!
3. We will be having a toy and food drive drive this year to benefit local kids in need of some Christmas cheer, it will be going to a local charity who will distribute to needy kids as well as the local food bank. If you feel led to give, we have a rubbermaid tote at the end of our driveway that you can leave something in. Please make sure the lid is sealed tight so everything stays dry.
4. We have had several people ask about donating to our light show itself. While we do this for the community at no charge, it does take over 40 hours of setup and prep and usually a few hundred dollars of new material every year. Should you wish to donate, our Venmo is @Brent-Deitrich and Cash app is $brengamgee - Its not expected but always appreciated!

We hope you enjoy our light show, and Merry Christmas!

Naylor Farm Lights - $16/entry

Admission includes HAYRIDE, VISIT WITH SANTA, PETTING ZOO, SLIDES, & INFLATABLES! Shop inside their gift shop for local goodies - candy, jams, produce, and so much more!

Fuquay-Varina Middle School, formally known as Fuquay Springs High School or "The Old Red Building", was constructed around 1918 on the corner of Ennis and N Academy Street. Fuquay-Varina Middle School has ample amounts of History behind it's construction. One interesting artifact that still resides inside of the since re-constructed Middle School is the School Bell that was used back when the school first opened.
Although still uncertain, these are the most up-to-date dates found for the School up until the new High School was built on Bengal Blvd.
  • Fuquay Springs High School 1918 (first graduating class 1922)
  • Fuquay-Varina High School 1967 (first graduating class)
  • Fuquay-Varina Junior High School 1975 (with move of high school grades 10-12 that year)
  • Fuquay-Varina Middle School 1977
  • Ninth grade left the campus for Bengal Blvd in 1977.
