Video of test sequence for the flag
The flag was upgraded in 2017 to use RGB lights. Previously it had red, white and blue lights in the respective spaces. upgrading to RGB gave us a lot more options when doing show sequences.
All the changes that we made to the Christmas 2017 show came a handful of problems. First was the shipping delay with our lights. We ordered all of the lights for our new RGB bulb tree and they were late. Once they were all installed and outside the waterproof bulbs tuned out to have a factory default that caused them to not be so waterproof. 20 strings burnt up or had malfunctions because of water leaks after the first rain.
Two of the Snowflakes on top of the building were flashing pink and sometimes random colors because of a power issue. but because of the consistent rain, we couldn’t get up there to fix it as fast as we would have liked.
The bad batch of non-waterproof bulbs also affected our 7 trees. we had to redo them once the new batch came in. Once they were redone a storm blew the tops of the trees sideways, breaking them. Next year we’ll have all new trees again.
This year we made some big changes to the show and added a lot of new light elements.
2 Large presents, 2 small presents, and 10 medium presents.
7 stars and 9 snowflakes to the roof of the building.
2 Squigle line Trees
A Light Bulb with a face
and 2 new Matrices
We also replaced our 7 Christmas trees and added new lights
The big Christmas tree was redone with RGB bulbs instead of the RGB strips
We also did a software migration and had to reprogram all of our songs for the new xLights software.
