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.

First video for 2016 is online + possible early finish due to rain

Good news! The first video of the year has now been published online for your viewing pleasure. Check out the 2016 videos page if you’d like to watch it.

Regarding tonight’s show please note the big santa, sleigh and a small amount of miscellaneous lighting will not be switched on tonight due to the weather conditions and chance of heavy rain. They should be back tomorrow night :).

Christmas lights are back in town!

Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2016 launched as planned last night, December 1, and the new roof border using digital lighting technology worked perfectly – phew! There were a few small hiccups with some other older lights that needs fixing over the next few days, but that won’t stop the display lighting up the neighourhood 8:30 – 10:30 pm nightly until the end of the month (weather permitting).

First photos of 2015 are now online

Of course, Christmas lights always look better in person. If you’d like to visit the display the Directions page will tell you how to get here (and as a bonus, addresses for some other synchronised musical Christmas light displays around Adelaide).

Ryan’s Christmas Lights turn on nightly at 8:30 pm until 10:30 pm (unless it is raining).

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!
