ShowTime Showcase for 2010 Non-Animated Displays
We're all about creating dynamic shows by mixing lights, music and
electrical control of almost anything and everything. Our customers
are very proud of their displays and have sent us videos. Watch them and get some great ideas!
Click any image to watch their submitted video.
All videos are in a universal ,mp4 format so they should play on Macs, PCs
and smartphones. If videos are slow to open, it's because the entire
video is downloaded before playback begins. Adjust your browser
default program settings to start playing an .mp4 file while it is still
streaming to your device for a much better viewing experience. If you
are using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 9, we suggest you goto:
Tools :: Internet Options :: Programs Tab :: Set Programs (near the bottom).
Now goto Set Program Access and Computer Defaults. Select Custom then
scroll down the list till you see "Choose a default media player." Click the
radio button next to Windows Media Player and you are good to go.
Zach Carson Hutchinson, KS
United States. I have
a Mr. Christmas light display. I love Light-O-Rama but do not have the
money for one. I look at your website very year.
Oklahoma City, OK United States. 15,000
lights on the roof alone. We had to add 2 extra breakers just for
lights along with several GFI electrical outlets. A great test this
year as we are hoping to completely computerize next year.
Lexington, KY United States. My
display features hand-painted cutouts made out of Coroplast.
The motion of the figures is generated by windshield wiper
motors. his year's display depicts Santa and his elves busy at
work in the toy shop up in the north pole.
Santa is busy painting a doll while most of the elves are
scurrying about doing various jobs.
One of the elves is obviously distraught as he stands and
points at a wall calendar... lamenting the fact that Christmas is
just around the corner. I've always tried to create a scene
with my cutouts rather than just throwing a bunch of different
characters into the yard at random. The backdrop is made up of 4
panels of Coroplast and is 8 feet tall by 16 feet in length.
Santa is about over 5.5 feet tall and each of the elves is
between 3.5 to 4.5 feet tall. http://www.santalandChristmas.com

United States. my
display is run off a 6 channel Mr. Christmas unit..
I was a
little confused with the qualifications for entry. Its says If your
display is static, meaning there is no computer anywhere flashing
the lights in a way that you program. i did not program this unit
and its not computerized... but i did submit a static picture as
well as a video. its is in no way run off of Light-O-Rama. My
display is run off a 6 channel stand alone Mr. Christmas unit. I
built a 15 foot mega tree which has strobes wired to a sensor. i
built the arcs, and fans, and used about 70 or more extension cords
on the 6 channel unit to make everything sync and about 1300 lights.
I also added a Virtual Santa in the top left window from inside. My
display took a little over 2 weeks to set up.

Kissimmee, FL United States. I love
decorating for Christmas but this past year was rough and my family
and I had to bunk up with the in-laws. My mother in-law would not
let me decorate the house because she feared I might go over board.
Well I didn't take no for an answer. I thought and thought and threw
all sorts of ideas at her and she shot them all down. Then I
realized that she has no say over my truck. I have never seen a
vehicle lit up the way I wanted to light mine, so I planned and put
together my Christmas Truck. With just a power inverter and some
light clips, I put on over 1,300 led lights on my 2006 dodge ram. I
drove it everywhere (yes I was pulled over several times but talked
my way out of the tickets). It was a blast to build and to drive. My
mother in-law thought I was crazy until she saw that it not only
worked, but was definitely a sight to see. It was fun to see peoples
faces when I drove around to look at there decorations cause they
would come outside to look at mine. Next year will definitely be
bigger and better. I cant wait to show you what I come up with.
No photos attached.

United States. My wife,
Amanda, and I have been putting this display together for 4 years
now. Our 2 year old son, Ethan help us this year. We add more lights
every year. We have a little
over 20,000 lights ths year. We have many different yard items from
snowmen to polar bears to penguins and nativity scenes.
We collected donations to help out needy families by having
Santa take picture with children at our house.
Rolla, MO United States. This
Christmas was my first putting up lights, and I have been bitten by
the bug! I've been inspired by Richard Holdman and all the other
outstanding light displays I have seen on YouTube. Next year I hope
to have an AWESOME display using Light-O-Rama (LOR) controllers.
This year's display used almost 6,000 lights (all are LED except the
white lights on the deer). I've bought over 15,000 lights for next
year, so I'm hoping to have over 20,000! I'm looking forward to next
year and animating with Light-O-Rama controllers!!
Columbia, SC United States. We
have 3500 LED lights in our current display with a combination of
light strands, snowflakes, chasing icicle lights and candy sticks.
Knowing this isn't quite enough we have already purchased
another 1000 already in preparation of next year.
We are really looking to continue to grow our display and
feel a Light-O-Rama kit would be a great way to take the next step.
We had our first snow on Christmas ever this year so our
picture shows our lights in the snow (which we may never get to see
We're here to make sure you're successful. Imagine it, then
