Do you remember last year reading about the guy who set up his Christmas display so anyone in the world could control it.  He had people controlling his lights from almost every country in the world.

Well, his name is Tom Hammond, and his Internet Controlled Christmas Lights has become famous.  We are very happy to have him attending Light Up Ohio 2017. 

Tom will be having a workshop that will outline how to create an internet controlled, interactive Christmas Light Display, based on "FREE" software (Xlights and Falcon Player) and Low-Cost hardware (Raspberry Pi and Arduino).

Tom's workshop will be on Saturday morning June 3 at our event.  Hope you can attend.  Registration is open now at LUO2017.Whindo.com.

When I first started doing a synchronized display some 15+ years ago, one company was there to help me every step of the way.  I credit them for helping me bring JOY and Wonderful Memories to myself, and countless others who have visited my display over the years.  That company is Light O Rama.

Not only did they help me in my hobby of  "Making Memories", but they have generously supported an event that I hold near and dear to my heart for the past 11 years, Light Up Ohio.

This year is no different, and I "Thank" Light O Rama for their continued support.  This year they have donated a total of $500 in merchandise credit, that will be given away to 5 lucky winners at Light Up Ohio 2017, on  June 3, in beautiful Westerville, OH.  Hope to see you there!!!  Registration is open "NOW"!!!

Are you confused about getting Xlights and LOR working together in perfect harmony? 

Clyde Lindsey has volunteered to share his expertise to help you understand how to do this in an all day session at Light Up Ohio 2017, on Friday June 2nd.  Clyde is famous for his "how to" videos and is the guru of anything Holiday Lighting related.  We are honored to have him at our event.

Registration is "OPEN  NOW" for Light Up Ohio 2017, but "Seating is Limited", so reserve your spot now.

We deal with some great vendors in this hobby of Holiday Lighting. 

One of them, that I highly recommend, is Christmas Done Bright.  They have been making spectacular wireframes for a very long time, and they are one of the best in the business.  We will be featuring their products, and raffling off a beautiful "Ringing Bell" wireframe http://www.christmasdonebright.com/lighted-displays/candy-canes/NEW-BOW-BELLS-LED, plus several $100 gift certificates, at Light Up Ohio 2017 on June 2-3 in Westerville, Ohio. 

You don't want to miss it.  Registration is "OPEN NOW" at  www.luo2017.whindo.com
