2006 Display

 

 

The display has grown again with over 30% more lights than last year, including several new homemade items. This year was essentially an all year project. I spent a lot of my free time all throughout the year designing, building, and programming the lights. The new display items added this year are some of the best I've built to date. 

 

 

New Items

The following items were made by us for the display this year:

Rail Car for Train

More Light Balls

Icey, the 10 foot animated polar bear

A life-size, animated Santa Clause

3 Dancing Toy Soldiers

6 three-dimensional  presents

The following items were bought and added to the display this year:

Brand New Sound System

Several more 3-dimensional deer

Blue lights on fence

More lights in all trees (also replaced many faded sets)

Added lights to more bushes and trees (previously unlit)

Circle Yard Grid

More Strobe Lights

 

Music

Based on last year's survey, I have brought back two of the top three songs from last year, "Sleigh Ride" and "Feliz Navidad". I have also had many requests to bring back "A Fifth of Beethoven" and "Trepak: Russian Dance" from The Nutcracker from a couple of years ago. I reworked the Beethoven song from scratch to improve the timings and to work in the previous two year's additions. There are also three brand new songs in the mix, resulting in an approximate 18 minute show length.
