Why: Why not?
If you see or hear any issues with the lights or music, please feel free to email me, I would greatly appreciate it.
To my 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. Among other things, I can reconsider the playlist, the start and end times of the light show, adjust the brightness of the lights, place blinders on the sides to cut down the light shining to the sides, or alter the lighting sequences to flash the lights less. So don't hesitate to contact me if you have an issue with the display or the musical light show.
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, unless otherwise noted.
In these challenging times of a coronavirus pandemic, please exercise reasonable precautions. If people gather around the light display, please be respectful of the desire for people to exercise social distancing. Disrespectful behavior or any other disorderly conduct will not be tolerated.
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. In total, there are 8548 lights available, but not all are used for all light shows. The Halloween light show configuration uses 6348 lights, and the Christmas and Valentine's Day light show configurations each use 7644 lights.
I would like to add more songs to the light shows. If you have any suggestions for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Valentine'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 hard profanity or other adult language or topics will not be considered.
