Here Comes 2006

Work has begun on this year’s display. The soundtrack has been completed with three brand new songs (you’ll find out about those closer to Christmas!). Finally, more pictures have been added to the 2006 Photo gallery page.

Season Finale: 2005

Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2005 is now finishing up. Special Effects (Bubbles, Fog) have been taken down, and Santa’s inflatable sleigh has been deflated and stored back in the box. Be prepared for new things in 2006 – check out the 2006 Photo Gallery page for a sneak preview of what will be out there!! Finally, a completely new soundtrack will be created for next year, along with a completely new light sequence for the computer controlled light sets. I hope you all had a very merry Christmas!

Prime Publicity

Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2005 has had quite a bit of publicity this month: From the Messenger and Advertiser Newspapers, to FIVEaa Talkback Radio and Seven News. I would like to thank everybody involved in organising this publicity – from the staff of the media companies to the members of the community.

Computerisation

Merry Christmas… well not yet anyway! I’ve decided to turn part of my display into being computerised this year, and plan to do more next year. For Computer Specs, check out the Computer page of the website. The Hardware itself will cost $110, and it will operate though a printer cable (LPT port) and 5v power (via internal hard drive power cable).

Dates Confirmed

Hi there, the dates of Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2005 have been confirmed. The display will be running from the 1st to the 31st of December, 8:30pm to 10:30pm. The display may be cancelled if the weather is forecasted to rain. On other news, I have just found out that someone may be helping with money costs to run and improve this display – up to $300. This will go a long way, thank you!
