Some More Sightseeing

Monday, December 30th, 2013

We took the family out tonight to see a few more lights before the season is wrapped up.  First stop, Christmas in the Park out at Longview.  I could include about 50 different pictures from there.  Mostly wireframes, nothing terribly technical, but still fun for the kids.  We then went to see Chris Simmons’ display […]

The last couple nights have been great on the donation side of things.  Many people have been to the drop box.  We have received a couple of nice notes, a card, and of course some cash 🙂  We appreciate all of you who have joined in to help us in supporting KCRM.  To the anonymous […]

Christmas Eve

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

    I love this comic.  Even if I weren’t a Calvin and Hobbes fan, I would love it.  It captures so many of the sentiments of the season- anticipation, friendship, warmth, tradition- and manages to do this without being sappy or clumsy in doing so. We hope you are able to spend time today with friends […]

Visitor Feedback

  When I emptied the donation box tonight, I found this handwritten note: If you see this, Adrieanna, thank you very much!  Merry Christmas!

A White Christmas?

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Well, it looks like we are going to get some snow. If the weather folks are correct, it will likely still be here for the Big Day. If you want to get out and see the lights before it hits, it looks like tonight is the night 🙂 In the meantime, a clip from one […]

Christmas is drawing near

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

If you want to see the lights before Christmas, you’ll need to get on with it 🙂 Six more nights remain to view the lights prior to Christmas. Of course, if you’d rather see them later, that’s fine, too. Just don’t wait too long- the lights will go dark for the season after 1/6/14. Thank […]

A quick video

Friday, December 13th, 2013

I usually save all my videos until after the show season as a means of encouraging people to come out and see the show in person rather than watching videos online.  This year, though, I am going to make a small exception.  I took a quick, rough video from two angles to show the display […]

Slow start tonight…

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

I came home from work and the show computer had crashed.  That in itself was odd, but once I restarted it, I didn’t have access to one of the com ports that runs the show.  After a little checking, I found that my usb hub had died.  Good grief.  I had one open usb port […]

In the last few minutes, our website zoomed past 11000 page views.  Seems like it wasn’t that long ago that we had just crossed 9000.  Pretty cool.

If you are staying in tonight…

ABC is doing a short series on some of the craziest Christmas lights in the nation.  The first of four episodes is tonight.  ABC’s full write-up is HERE I’ll be watching for some ideas for our display 🙂

45700 Lights

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Gosh, that is a lot of lights 🙂  I had counted in my head early on, and had come up a couple thousand higher than that, but I had a couple items that didn’t make it into the display this year, so the numbers were a little lower. Have you come by to see the […]

Visitor photos

Wednesday, December 4th, 2013

If you came by and caught some nice photos or a video you would like to share, contact us via the Contact Us page, or link to it (them) on the Visitor Comments page.  It’s always fun to see what others liked about the show 🙂

Here comes the cold…

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

After tomorrow, it looks like we aren’t going get above freezing for a week or so.  As I see it, that gives everyone a couple options: -Come out and see the lights tonight while it is still warm.  Tune into 101.7, and watch the lights from the comfort of your car, windows up or windows […]
