The Christmas Katy Story

 

Christmas Katy celebrates its ninth year of synchronized lighting in 2015.  As our history goes things will be a little different so you will need to look around to catch all the subtle changes.  We were very pleased with the look that we have achieved in 2014 with more programmable LED’s and the new Marty Fan and Bethlehem Star.  We will begin our installation on October this year in order to begin our shows on Thanksgiving night.  When Christmas Katy started the original show used 48 channels of LOR ((Light O Rama) controllers.  This has grown over the years and this year ballooned to 6866 channels.  We have 8 Cosmic Ribbons which really accent the show, and these have been augmented by the addition of additional RGB smart ribbon, RGB strings, and RGB modules which run off additional controllers on separate networks.   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.   The RGB smart lights are on 6 mini arches along the street and add additional pop to the show.  We have also built some RGB modules for each of the 16 posts around the Triple Mega and the 8 posts which border the sidewalk.  New for 2015 will be circular arch over the front door made up of 8 RGB circles that we built this year.  We have also built six RGB Coro Candy Canes.  Our neighbors on the street who joined our show last year are all back as well.  There are 16 songs, or sequences for 2015.  The 32 ft. Triple Mega Tree is back but will not include the red/green spiral tree, but will have a new look.  Other notable features are the “Marty Fan” with 16 Channels and the Cosmic Arches on the left side of the display.  We hope you can visit and enjoy the holiday music and the light synchronization.  We started our shows Thanksgiving night and will continue through Sunday, December 27th.  Sunday through Thursday from 6 PM to 9 PM, Friday and Saturday 6 PM to 10 PM.  Please remember to turn your headlights off, and use your parking lights when you watch the show.  FM 89.9 for the radio.  Channel 13 came out and did a story on our display a couple of years ago.  Here is a link to the story.  http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/video?id=8918054
