If your planning your Christmas light installation and show, then you need an FM transmitter to bring it all together. As you know, your music ties up every show and gives it life. The lights may dance and flicker in beauty, but without music, they are just flash bulbs popping off.
Read this cool article about this holiday light show and I will see you below.
Endwell man turns front lawn into holiday light show
ENDWELL — Driving down Daren Drive, a quiet suburban neighborhood in Endwell off Taft Drive, motorists might be in for a surprise. One resident has decorated his front lawn with flashing red, white and blue lights, while speakers blast patriotic hymns.
Tom Gaska takes great pride in his work. The 56-year-old Lockheed Martin engineer spent a month setting up his spotlights and strobes, repurposing and rewiring hundreds of Christmas lights for the occasion.
This is the first year Gaska has set up a computer-controlled lightshow for July. He’s been an avid electrical hobbyist since he built robots in the 1980s, so his light shows are well-known to neighbors. He has spent years constructing similar displays for the winter holidays.
“I’ve always been over the top with my lights,” Gaska said.
What prompted the engineer to spend more than $4,000 on his home light show?
“Just patriotism,” Gaska said. “I think of all the people that passed away fighting for our livelihoods, and I build the systems they are fighting with. The Fourth of July should be as important as Christmas.”
His patriotism is apparent in the various displays on his lawn. Gaska’s favorite piece is a model of the Joint Strike Fighter, a military aircraft, which he has spent years designing computer systems for. It rotates above a display with the scrolling words “remember the heroes” in red lights.
Even though his music plays from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., Gaska said he has never received a noise complaint.
“The neighbors love it,” he said. “The mailman said he wanted to bring all his coworkers around to see it.”
The music is a sampling of patriotic tunes by the Maine Community Band, of which Gaska is a saxophonist. He does not know how long he will leave the lights on, but they will stand for at least a week. Then, he plans to have an even bigger Christmas display.
