*** If the lights are not flashing during the light show scheduled times (check the Schedule tab below for times) or if the lights are flashing but music can't be heard, something has probably gone wrong…if that seems to be the case, please feel free to email me or send a text message to nine-two-zero-six-five-nine-eight-one-two-eight, I would greatly appreciate it. The music will only be playing during the musical light show (see the Schedule tab below for times).
Patron ConductI would like the West Pershing Lights display to be a safe and enjoyable experience for my neighbors and visitors. So, please use some common sense, care, and courtesy while in the neighborhood. And please observe the following guidelines:
- While driving, be watching for parked vehicles, traffic, people, and pets, not the light show!
- Do not stop in the driving lanes of the road, pull to the side of the road and park.
- Do not leave your trash or cigarette butts behind, please take all garbage with you.
- Do not block driveways when parking to watch the lights.
- Do not use driveways to turn around; please go around the block.
- Do do not turn the music up loud enough to be heard or felt by me or my neighbors while we are indoors.
- If on foot, please stay on the sidewalk, my driveway, or in the park, do not stand in the road.
- For your safety, do not walk through the display. Stay on the pavement and out of the yard.
Serious violators of traffic laws or city ordinances that are caught on camera will be reported to the local police department.
Let There Be Lights
If you haven't done so already, please, please, please, please read the guidelines in the Patron Conduct tab now. Learn it. Know it. Live it.
All lights in the West Pershing Lights light shows are energy efficient LED lights. Absolutely no incandescent lighting is used! The light shows are fully automated with the help of Home Assistant home automation software and the Light-o-rama light show software. In total, there are 6927 lights available, but not all are used for all light shows. The Halloween light show configuration uses 5677 lights, and the Christmas and Valentine's Day light show configurations each use 6022 lights. Starting in 2023, and for the foreseeable future, the light show will be condensed to just one half of the duplex.
I would like to add more songs to the light shows. If you have any suggestions for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine's, or St. Patrick's Day songs, email me some links to songs on Amazon or YouTube. My main requirement for song choices is that they are G-rated or near G-rated and suitable for children of all ages. Songs that contain profanity or other adult language or topics will not be considered unless there is a clean radio-version available that is suitable for all ages.
To my West Pershing Lights neighbors: As the display gets bigger, it is also getting brighter. If my lights are flashing into your windows and you find it to be an annoyance, or if you have any other issues with the display or playlist, please email me so I can work with you to resolve any issues you might have. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any issue with the display or the musical light show.
