I found these Christmas Lights at Burton Drive & Merino Lane in Twinsburg, Ohio. I posted the photo to Facebook and got some tips on the story behind them. I found out that they taking donations to support the Emergency Assistance Center of Northfield. They have a box at the end of driveway to put your donations in. According to s Twinsburg Bulletin Article last year they raised $270 and 260 pounds of food.
The display consists of approx 45000 lights, mostly LEDs. The photo you see above does not show the lights along the side of the house, the display goes around the corner. The display is on from 5:45 PM to 11:00 PM every day through the first week of January.
Tonight I took a trip over the Silverdale Lights. The lights were great and not overdone, the lights were set up to go along with the music. There are over 50,000 lights.
The official charity of the Silverdale Lights is the Officer Joshua T Miktarian Memorial Scholarship Fund. They are collecting donations at the lights or on the website. I have written about Officer Miktarian on this blog before, click to search.
I know it is not Christmas but I had to share these now because I think that they are spectacular. The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is an attraction at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios that takes place for a little over a month of the year. They install millions of lights on the streets of New York. They wrap every surface with lights. Then they make them dance to music. It is a wonderful site to be seen. Take a look at the photos and let me know what you think, but photos do not do this justice and it MUST be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
