Q: When will the lights be on for the season?
A: Weather permitting, we plan to start the show on Black Friday at 5:30 pm.
Q: How does all of this work?
A: The lights are controlled by a dedicated computer using Light-O-Rama hardware and software.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Setting up all of the lights takes about 20 hours. The real time consuming element is programming the lights for each song. The programming usually takes 2-4 hours per minute of song.
Q: How much does this cost?
A: We estimate that running the show for the entire season only costs about $40 in electricity since the lights are turned off and on continuously. We don’t even want to think about how much money we’ve spent on lights over the years!
Q: How many lights do you have?
A: We have approximately 10,000 lights.
Q: How long have you been doing this?
A: 2018 will be our 12th year.
