Over The Top Christmas Lights
2020 - Behind the Scenes

There are a few additions and changes being made to the 2019 Over The Top Christmas Lights show. I again used the Light-O-Rama (LOR) system which uses a combination of computer programs, controllers, and other items to make the lights "dance" to the beat. This year's shows uses 46 controllers with a total of 728 channels, 52 RGB LED floods, 700 RGB pixels, and over 135,000 lights. I have programmed over 35 different songs and clips for the two one hour shows. Each song took between 8 and 10 hours per minute to sequence. I have a total of 700 hours of work in the sequencing of the songs. I used almost 4 miles of extension cords and an uncounted number of miles of wire in total.

Each light is checked both before it is put up and also after it has been placed. I have also been working on changing the incandescents over to LEDs which uses a lot less electricity. If you would like to see the specifics of the lights, channels, amps and extension cords go here or if you would like to see just the basic totals you can go here.

There are 5 - 4' trees in the front, a 20' mega tree with a 4' star on top, 2 - 8' firesticks, 4 stars on the roof, 2 - 8' light wheels, 7 - 5' spiral trees, 2 - 10' mega spiral tree, 4 - 4' snowmen, a nativity scene in back, 16 RGB LED floods on roof, 24 new RGB LED floods on the storage building, 12 - 3' net light trees, 20 - 4 color net light pannels for the fence, 14 pixel leaping arches, a strobe light curtain, a snow machine, and a donation box. The tree roots will also be decorated. The items new for the 2020 shows are 2 additional spiral tree in the front. I will also be moving other things around to make look different. Information on most all the props used including the new and redesigned items can be found below.

I want to thank the ones that helped with the lights along with Lowes, and Creative Displays Incorporated.
