The current musical Christmas light show schedule structure breaks down like this: 
  • 5pm to 9pm Sunday-Thursday
  • 5pm to 11pm Friday-Saturday
  • 5pm to 2am on holidays and the day before holidays
The lights will come on (no music/no flashing) one hour before the musical light show begins, the light show with music will run during the times specified above, the lights will stay on (no music/no flashing) after the musical light show ends (if it ends before 2am), and then the lights will turn off at approximately 2am. If the musical light show runs beyond January 7th, 2024, I'll post an update to the schedule.

The 2023 Christmas light show playlist is one hour of music with no repeated songs during the hour and the playlist will repeat hourly during the light show scheduled times. The playlist will always start on-the-hour and will continue for the full hour. The following playlist contains the name of the song, artist, duration, and the time of the hour the song is expected to start playing:

I am open to requests for additional Christmas, Halloween, or Valentine's Day (or anti-Valentine's Day) songs. You can send those requests to me, Jason, via email by clicking here or post them in the comments below. Song requests should be songs that are appropriate for all ages.
