ChristmasKaty celebrates it’s sixth year of synchronized lighting in 2012. The popularity of our show this year is appreciated. In order for everyone to get a chance to see the show in person during peak viewing times we may go into a drive thru status. We ask that you please not come to a complete stop but drive slowly down our street, make the cul de sac turn and make the second pass. If you wish to view longer park on the left side of our house and get out of your car. Traffic gets backed up the couple of days before Christmas and we want everyone to have a viewing opportunity. Please do no park on Cloverfield before you reach Stoughton Court in order for traffic to move safely. Everyone appreciates a fair chance to view the lights. Remember to have your radio on FM 89.9 also. Now back to our story. Due to lack of rainfall in 2011 we lost a pine tree which was a major structural footing in our display. For 2012 we have planned a major new look which required significant modifications to our setup and in the programming. We are very excited about the new look that we ha
ve achieved. We began our installation in October this year due to extra work needed and with Thanksgiving falling earlier this year. Visit our Rig Up Chronicles to see how things progressed. When ChristmasKaty started the original show used 48 channels of LOR ((Light O Rama) controllers. This has grown over the years and this year ballooned to over 1464 channels. We have 8 Cosmic Ribbons which really accent the show. Each Cosmic Ribbon (from LOR) has 50 RGB LED lights. These are individually color controlled and together add 1256 channels to our show. Each LED light must be programmed when to turn on or off, and what color to produce. In 2011 we added a 30 ft. tunnel of lights over the drive way which will be coming back with some minor changes. Our neighbors on the street who joined our show last year are all back as well. There are 14 songes, or sequences for 2012. With the tree loss we have moved our big 32 ft. Mega Tree slightly and will have another new and incredible look for 2012. You will not find another tree like this one! It will be known as the Triple Mega. We will be moving the “Marty Fan” which is getting new LED lights this year in the display along with the Cosmic Arches which are made of clear Acrylic tubing. Those of you returning to see our display will have fun seeing how things have switched around. We hope you can visit and enjoy the holiday music and the light synchronization. We started our shows Thanksgiving night and will continue through New Year’s Day. Sunday through Thursday from 6 PM to 10 PM, Friday and Saturday 6 PM to 11 PM. Please remember to turn your headlights off, and use your parking lights when you watch the show. FM 89.9 for the radio.
