Season VII Begins November 25
What is returning to Season VII is the great mix of music that is choreographed to the over 58,000 LED Lights. The show celebrates the spirit of the season with selections performed by, Johnny Mathis, David Foster, Trans Siberian Orchestra ,Mannheim Steamroller, and The Piano Guys. New sequences this year add Justin Timberlake's "Can't Stop the Feeling" and The Carpenters "Only Yesterday." The lights again will encompass both sides of the street. Look for the signature moment when all 58,000 lights go "full on" to represent the 58,000 Americans newly diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2016. It occurs during the song "Boughs of Holly" which is at the top of the playlist this year. Changes you will see include the raising of the spiral megatree from 15' to over 20' . A new display attraction is the addition of "The Tree". It features over 3,000 lights on a standard six foot christmas tree. You will surely notice the changes to the sound of the show, broadcast in FM Stereo on 97.9. The input signal has been digitized, and spectrally enhanced to bring you the best sounding lightshow you could find.
By definition, a synchronized light show. This means that the music track is linked to what you see in the strings of Christmas Lights. PD Shimmers uses 100% LED Light strings with bulb sizes varing between M5 and C6. There is newer technology that uses pixels instead of single color bulbs. Pixels may use any combination of over 64,000 colors. It has been the decision of the MJFPD Board to not invest in this technology as it would render all current equipment obsolete. However we are 100% certain that when you drive up to Ithaca Lane or Echo Road, You Will Be Amazed!
Thank You 2016 Sponsors
