We Get Questions All The Time About Our Display, We'll Do Our Best To Answer Some Here
Q: How many lights are in the display?
A: In our first year we had just over 3,000 pixels. We’ve added anywhere from 500-2000 pixels every year. For the 2023 display we have just under 8,000 pixels.
Q: How long does this take to program?
A: This equation contains many different variables. Song length, detail of effects, element count, and pixel count just to name a few. It can take upwards of on hour of work to program anywhere from 2-10 seconds of show. Again, this really depends on many different factors but that equation usually holds true.
Q: How far in advance do you start work on a show?
A: Most years are the same:
Jan-Jun: Pre-Planning, Modeling
Jun-Aug: Element/Prop Building
Oct-Nov: Outdoor Setup/Soft Runs/Show Tests
Nov-Dec: Show Opens/Runs
We are almost always doing something related to the show throughout the entire year. Most years we have the theme for the following year chosen before the current years show begins.
Q: How much computing power and know-how does this require?
A: You don’t have to be a master computer programmer but should have a basic understanding of programming as well as networking. Surprisingly, the entire show fits and is ran from a computer smaller than a deck of cards.
Q: But what about…

Thank you for your interest. Enjoy the show!
