Our display is animated with computer controlled lights set to music, so still photos only capture some of the experience. Unfortunately, the December, 2010 snowfall amounts ruined any chances of taking decent video of the display. Currently, the latest posted videos are of our 2006 display and quite a bit has changed since then! For now, please enjoy some photos from our display.
For 2010, we added more LED lighting to make things more colorful and energy efficient. We added a new video projector to improve upon the video element we added to the display in 2009. New colorful LED "wash" fixtures shoot a myriad of different colors on the front of the house and garage. And last but not least, a new singing, dancing "mascot" to go along with the display.
Here are some views of the front of the house, which features our Peanuts Nativity Pageant display. Last year in 2009, we added video that plays along (and synchronized to) the music and lights, as well as shows "speech bubbles" for our Linus Shares the Gospel display. For this year we upgraded the projector to one that is much brighter than last year's. We also used new RGB LED flood fixtures to "wash" the front of the house in colors.
Remember Jesus sign is on the edge of this
side of the display, and helps remind visitors that we are here to celebrate the
real reason for the season!
Here are a few close-up pictures of our Peanuts Nativity Pageant display:
New for 2010 is our new "talking tree mascot". He sits on the edge of our Toyland area, talks between songs, and sings along and dances with some of the songs in the show. He needs a good name though, any suggestions?
pictures to the left and directly below show a couple of minor additions for
2010. First of all we added the large Pooh figure. Secondly, our
Snoopy on Doghouse wireframe, which dates back (and was the inspiration for) our
original Linus Shares the Gospel display in 2000,
was redone with LED lights, giving the display a brighter, cleaner look than it
had even when new.
