Come Listen To The Lights!

This year there will be a spectacular Christmas light show, synchronized to music. Musical selections include Trans Siberian Orchestra, Bruce Broughton Orchestra, Sinead O’Conner and others. You simply listen by tuning your radio to 107.7 FM.

The computer controlled show has over 12,000 lights, three “leaping arches”, a 20-foot tall “mega tree” with a 3D star and more.  The lights are almost exclusively low-power LEDs and the entire show runs off of one standard household outlet.  The show is controlled by a salvaged desktop computer running Light-o-Rama software controlling five controllers plus three “cosmic color ribbons."

The show runs Dec. 1 until Jan. 8, from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. each Sunday to Thursday and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. On Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day, it will be on from noon until 11 p.m.
