Lightshow

















By the time I got over to 22nd Street this afternoon, I'd just missed the 5:00 p.m Light Spectacular, but the fifteen minute wait until the next show just built up the suspense.  While you waited, you could work a control box & push buttons to light up parts or all of Frosty, displayed on a large screen in front of the house.  This kept me, & the two small children waiting with their parents, quite busy.


















It's grand show, with music, lights & special effects, but best parts are when the faces at the windows appear.  You laugh when you first see them, and like a baby, you enjoy them just as much again when they return.  They're a formula for instant delight.

Update:  For much better photographs, & a far more technically capable description of the Spectacular, check out John Huntington's blog Control Geek.  I met John yesterday at the show.

Good to meet you too, John. Thanks for the link - your photographs are terrific! I love the technical expertise you bring to describing this event - along with the photographs it's way beyond my capabilities! I'll add the link as an update.
