Ever since I can remember, Dad would take us to go see Christmas lights. When I saw National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation - I knew I wanted to do what Chevy Chase did to his house. This site tells all about how we have made our christmas lights Dance, and a history of how our display has changed over the years.
In 2010 Our light show used approximately 4,364 lights (mostly , LED with a bit of Incandescent) 1,700 feet of extension cords drawing 28 Amps of power and (with all lights on) Sequenced By Ligh-o-Rama Controllers and Showtime S2 Software to make the lights “dance” in time to several songs. The lights run from dusk (about 6:00pm) to 10:00pm. The music plays over speakers, and FM Transmitter to 89.7fm. We invite everyone to come enjoy our lights any day from Thanks Givving to New Years day.
The show began at our house on Berkeley Ave Christmas of 2008 with a very basic design and 16 chanels of lights. The original hardware and software used is much different from this years show.
In 2009 we expanded to 24 chanels with slightly more complex elements
In 2009 Our light show used approximately 3,500 lights (mostly Incandescent, but some LED) drawing 22 Amps of power (with all lights on) and some special hardware to “dance” in time to several songs. The lights run from dusk (about 6:00pm) to 9:00pm. The music plays over speakers, but we will be adding an FM transmitter in 2010. We invite everyone to come enjoy our lights any day from Thanks Givving to New Years day.
