Happy New Year to all. With the New Year now welcomed in this morning, it is time to bid adieu to Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2015. The full 2015 playlist has now been uploaded (at last!) and accessible in the video gallery.
First photos of 2015 are now online
The first photos of the 2015 display are now online for viewing – woohoo!
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!
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.
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.
Salisbury East shining brighter for another year
With yesterday being December 1, Ryan’s Christmas Lights is now operating for 2013, with the initial switch on happening last night. After doubts that the evening might have been wet, the weather cleared up in time that there wasn’t a problem.
Happy New Year, another season over!
It is nearly 2013 this New Years Eve, that means once again it is the end for Ryan’s Christmas Lights for the year. The tear down stage is next on the schedule, but it is never has interesting as the decorating stage in October/November. Happy New Year!
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.
