Extreme hot weather and adjusted running times

Due to the extreme heat, tonight’s display will likely not start until after 9 pm with some of the lights unplugged for the whole night. A moment ago at 8 pm, the local outside temperature was still hovering around 40 degrees (C). This is approaching the upper recommended operating conditions for some of the equipment that runs the Christmas lights display.

Tomorrow (Friday) will be another day of extreme heat, however Saturday should be cooler and much more comfortable.

2018’s display planned to begin December 2nd

It is busy-busy time here at Ryan’s Christmas Lights setting up the 2018 display! This year’s display should be on nightly from December 2nd (Sunday). Weather forecasts for the 1st predict heavy afternoon showers that may linger into the evening.

Some of this year’s changes are still in the construction phase so may not be put out until after the first week of December.

A little longer to go for the videos … Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It is 2018, and that means that is the end of Ryan’s Christmas Lights for 2017. Boo! I hope you have had a chance to come by and see the show, but if not there will be videos!

Videos of the display are currently being edited, so these are still a little while away before being uploaded to ryanschristmaslights.com/videos/#2017. I will post another update when they are ready to watch.

The new addition is… colour-changing icicles!

After an extended delay, the new display addition to the show is finally installed and working! What is this addition you ask? Now there are colour changing icicles along the length of the house, and they work nicely with last year’s new roof border!

You can see the new icicles for yourself between 8:30 pm and 10:30 pm nightly until December 31. Or stay tuned to facebook.com/RyansChristmasLights/ for a teaser video Thursday evening.

Rain on the way… lights could be off for the next 2-3 nights

Due to predicted heavy rains that will last a few days, there is a high probability that the light display will have to be switched off for the next 2-3 nights. At this stage the rain should clear before Thursday night’s show and the lights will continue to run until New Year’s Eve on the nights where rain is not present.

There is a chance that the display may be able to run for at least part of tonight (Monday night) – it just depends on how soon the wet weather moves in.
