All About Lights Over Lincoln
We are very fortunate to live in an area that has so many beautiful Christmas light displays to enjoy. One of those displays is created by Ron Benzenhoefer of Struthers. His display consists of 21,000 lights and an 8 channel control system which he uses to make the lights blink and dance to over 130 different songs. As you approach the house tune your radio to 107.7FM and prepare to be amazed.
But wait there is more! To make the experience interactive, Ron gives viewers the ability to change the songs. To “Skip a Song,” visitors simply dial the phone number listed on a sign in front of the house and the computer will automatically skip to the next song. To “Pick a Song,” connect to the WiFi, open a browser and select any song from the 130 song playlist. What fun to “control” the lights from your car!
The playlist consists of a wide range of song types including rock, country, disco, a few old rap songs and of course Christmas music. Because of the variety there is sure to be something that the entire family will enjoy.
So why does Ron host the display? “I do it to make people smile and spread a little joy. When you come here you can enjoy the lights to your favorite song and forget about your worries for a few minutes anyway. When I hear someone sitting outside just singing away I know it was all worth it.”
