2007 Display Facts


2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006

Some facts about our display.....

4 Rosea Court, Thornhill, Ontario, Canada. Click here for directions.

Designed, built, and funded by Martin & Andrew Lindsay. We have some sponsors that help out with the supplies and friends assist with installation.

Lights draw up to 35,000 Watts of power (peak). LED usage and computerization helps cut costs.

Over 460 channels control the lights.

More than 80,000 lights including more than 70,000 LEDs!

Synchronized to music, broadcast via FM radio (104.9FM)

More than 110,000 feet of wire

Over 400 hours invested to assemble the lights

All lights are HAND strung! (no machinery used, such as cherry pickers)

Entire show is about 5 minutes, which includes 4 sequences. (Show may be shorter during peak busy periods)

Each musical sequence takes more than 60 hours to program!

This year, we play 2 songs out of 4 sequences (1 sequence is a voice-over/introduction and another is an "ALL ON" sequence):

Sequence 1: "He's a Pirate" Klaus Badelt

Sequence 2: "Wizards In Winter" by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

2003/2004/2005 song (old) "Greensleeves" by artist "00.52"

$42,210.00 collected in donations in since 2002. All distributed to local charities.
