As the Christmas season winds down, we are preparing for the annual light take-down. Of course it only takes a day to pull down and pack all lights (and a month) to setup. It has been a very busy year this year.
The lights will go off @ 11pm on January 2, 2010, and will return around Thanksgiving 2010.

The weather lately has been very unpredictable. I have had to, several times this past week, shut down the show due to the horrible weather we have been having. I was starting to worry that some of the show items will float away :)

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be here on Saturday, December 19th, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, weather depending. They will have goody bags for the kids, and also be serving hot cocoa cocoa.

Videos for this year are also behind, and it is due to the bad weather we seem to be experiencing almost nightly. As soon as possible, we will have them up.

Thanks for visiting.

A quick Thank You from Santa and Mrs. Claus for coming by Saturday night. They are planning another visit on 12/19.

Videos of this year will be coming soon.

Also, we are keeping our eye on the weather conditions. If the rain is very heavy, we will turn the display off for the evening.

Thanks for joining us this year!

Author: Dino | Filed under: Christmas Display Thursday Nov 5,2009

So much work, so little time. Will be getting things done over the next 3 weekends. We will be testing our old equipment from last year and our new equipment for this year. Have to check on our FM Transmitter to see if she’s still alive (don’t worry, I have a backup). It’s gonna be fun :)

Thank You!

Just wanted to drop a quick note and thank everyone that was able to come and share Christmas with us this past year.  It was our first animated Christmas display, and we believe we did pretty good.  We have much bigger plans for Christmas 2009!  I will continue to update this site throughout the year to show our progress for 2009.  I will also work a little bit on the Video page to attempt to streamline videos into one section.  There are also several other videos that we have yet to assemble for broadcast.

Stick around – there will be more to come :)
