Heading out to see some neat Christmas light displays?
Four electronically connected houses at the corner of Matthew Brady and Tranby in East Windsor have tens of thousands of LED Christmas lights choreographed to blink along with music that you can listen to from your car radio!
Now in its third year, the display spans from the original house on the north side of Tranby, and includes houses a hundred feet across the road that all blink along to the rhythm and beat of Christmas songs.
Owner Robin Heath says it all started when he bought a 6-channel light controller from Canadian Tire and ran a small Christmas light display at his old house.
When he moved to the corner of Matthew Brady and Tranby the display got bigger and better, thanks to the blessings of his neighbours.
“Everyone just likes it, they say it’s really brought out the corner. They’re really pleased with it,” says Heath.
In addition to the Christmas fun, Heath says canned goods and toys are being collected for the needy and can be placed in two bins on his lawn.
More than 100 Christmas toys and 380 food items were collected in 2013.
Heath says when families are happy, he’s happy.
“I just really like the lights,” he said. “The more people who enjoy it, the more I like to do it. So I just go bigger and bigger every year.”
Tune your radio to 107.1 FM and enjoy all 21 tracks on a loop (ten musical tracks and eleven vocal songs) from 5pm to 11pm nightly.
The lights run nightly throughout the Christmas season, starting daily at dusk.
