A return to nice weather … the display is back on!

After ending the show early last night due to wet and stormy weather, the conditions are much more pleasant this evening so Ryan’s Christmas Lights will be back up and running as normal from 8:30 to 10:30 pm.

Meanwhile, the new roof outline which although is now physically in place, remains out of action this time due to suspected broken electronics – investigations continue. It is a little disappointing this element to the display is not working although on the upside the display as a whole still looks good if you ask me!

Display cancelled due to wet weather

In the interest of safety Ryan’s Christmas Lights has been cancelled for tonight (7 December 2015) due to the patchy wet weather. Sorry folks! Fingers crossed tomorrow’s conditions are more favourable.

In other news, I am still working on the new roof outline which I had hoped would be all done by tonight (before the weather change), but it did not work out that way. This new roof outline is now installed but some computer configuration issues are delaying lighting this element up once and for all.

Display is live as promised – to be completed in next day or so

Today is the first day of December – the start of the Christmas lighting season for many – and as promised Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2015 is lighting up Salisbury East! There is still a few things left that need ironing out, including the new roof outline, which I hope to have ready in the next day or two.

The display is now running nightly from 8:30 pm to 10:30 pm until December 31st (rain permitting, of course).

Goodbye, Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2014…Hello 2015!

The final night of Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2014 has just come to an end. So sad. But it isn’t forever – there are only 11 months until December comes around once again!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s Christmas light display however you saw it – in person, online, or otherwise.

With 2015 now just 90 minutes away here in South Australia, I’d like to wish everyone a safe and happy new year!

This is Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2014, signing off.

Merry Christmas

Today’s the day – Christmas Day! I hope you all have had a great day with family, friends celebrating the day however you see fit.

If you have not seen this year’s display yet and would still like to, don’t forget it will continue to run from 8:30 to 10:30 pm right up until New Years Eve.

Whoops… we had gremlins! Now all fixed.

Apologies to anyone who came past tonight, who saw a dark house! There were gremlins in the control system and due to other festive events I was not able to fix it during the show time. But now all looks set once again so the display will be back on as planned from tomorrow (Monday) at 8:30 pm.

On the plus side, some videos and photos are now live on the videos and 2012 gallery respectively. More videos are coming.

Let there be light!

The 2012 season for Christmas lights has begun! There were a few spots of rain and the odd clap of thunder earlier, but the weather cleared just in time. As always, the light show running times are 8:30 to 10:30 pm throughout December.

The webcam is up and running during show times for those who want to see the display live. Photos and HD videos will begin to appear in the next few days. So many ways to see the display, but nothing beats seeing it in person (need directions?)
