Carson Williams was hired to put together the "Symphony in Lights" for the Northfield Stapleton shopping Mall which is about 35 minutes away ... so I was excited to actually finally see it in person. My family went down there for the opening ceremony on Saturday, November 18th, 2006 and it was a heck of a treat. These pictures capture less than half of the 250,000 lights ... and (of course), don't show the motion nor the christmas music. There was also some giant lighted stick figures that towered over the crowd - very cool.
I happened to see Carson being interviewed by FOX News so had the chance to say hello to him. I'm sure he was incredibly busy, but he took the time to graciously chat briefly with me and other people as can be seen below. One interesting tidbit I heard him mention is that the 250,000 lights were all LED's which are more energy efficient - nice touch!
While it's cool that one can use the Internet to view Christmas Decorations, and even turn Christmas Lights on & off from your PC, nothing beats seeing (and hearing) something live in person. The shows runs nightly through Christmas, so consider a family outing to check it out if you live in the Denver area - highly recommended!
