There are better ways to blast away Thanksgiving than shopping in a stampede that makes Pamplona look civil. Cruising by a house on East Third Street in Superior for a light show is one of them.
Rawlie Hart and his family, at 2830 E. Third St., Superior, have made it a mission of theirs to emulate some of the more elaborate lighting displays set to music that can be found on YouTube.
“That’s what got me going was the videos on YouTube,” Hart said. “I’ve always had a thing for Christmas lights.”
And while Hart readily admits there are more elaborate and impressive displays out there, his work is nothing to scoff at.
The Hart family has about 4,000 LED lights strung up on the roof, in the trees in the yard and festooning the bushes. Those lights are all connected to a 16-channel switch tied into a computer program that flickers and flashes along to music broadcast on a high-frequency radio channel, 106.5 FM.
The show features an assortment of music, from Christmas songs to Dubstep.
Hart said he wants to expand his light show, but it’s going to take some money. But, he’s not asking for any donations to view the show. All you have to do is drive by Sunday through Thursday from 5-10 p.m., or Friday and Saturday from 5-10:30 p.m. and tune in to 106.5 FM to catch the action.
The display will run until New Year’s Day night.
