For anyone wondering, will Ryan’s Christmas Lights be happening this year? The answer to that question is Yes! Please note that the first night for the 2019 display will be a little later this year, most likely sometime during the first week of December. I will create a follow up post once the display is running.
Wet, wintery conditions this Thursday & Friday… lights may be off
Despite it being Summer, Adelaide is rather cold and wet right now and this may affect whether Ryan’s Christmas Lights will run tonight (Thursday). Forecasts suggest these wet conditions will continue into Friday.
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.
Merry Christmas! 2017
Merry Christmas to you all, I hope the day was a great one. Although Christmas is almost over, the lights display will continue running from 8:30 to 10:30 pm until December 31. Videos now need to be captured and will hopefully begin to be uploaded before New Years Eve!
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.
Happy New Year! All 2016 videos now online
Happy New Year everyone! Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2016 has now finished and planning begins for 2017.
All of the 2016 videos are now online and available to watch, in particular the new 2016 song, a 4-song Christmas Medley: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drv9yqdfAzo
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).
