Christmas light show gone overboard
Happy Holidays everyone! Here is something that should bring a smile to your face.
If you didn’t catch this when it went around last year, you owe it yourself to enjoy this. This display was the work of Carson Williams, a Mason, Ohio, electrical engineer. His 2005 display included over 25,000 lights that he spent nearly two months and $10,000 to hook up. So that the Williams’ neighbors wouldn’t be disturbed by constant noise, viewers driving by the house were informed by signs to tune in to a signal broadcast over a low-power FM radio station to hear the musical accompaniment.
Unfortunately, it also proved so popular that after a 6 December 2005 traffic accident in his neighborhood, Carson Williams agreed to indefinitely discontinue his display because it was causing severe traffic congestion problems.
To avoid the traffic problems, this year he helped set up housing facades at Heritage Oak park where he set up his light shows for the public to enjoy. These are links to this years shows. http://youtube.com/watch?v=rRvzcs3gQYk and another one http://youtube.com/watch?v=EsPZ2b-S1sM
