A local favourite holiday light display returned for the season on Sunday

Posted by Adam in Entertainment, Mon, 9:00 PM

Add one more home to the list of local festive light displays after the switch was flicked on Sunday on one of the city’s most popular setups at 239 Princess Avenue East. 

All told the setup, which goes by the name of "Cross Lights," features approximately 6000 lights across 5311 channels synced with music via FM radio frequency 104.1

The display’s trademark feature for many might just be its “singing” light bulbs, which homeowner Jason Cross tells me take as much as 8-10 hours of work per minute each time a new song is added to the system in order to get the lip sync movements just right. 


 

The display will be live through to the weekend after Ukrainian Christmas (Jan 7). During that time it will run starting at 5pm nightly until 10pm from Sunday through Thursday and until 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays. All will stay on extra-long on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day until midnight. 

The display is put on in support of Muscular Dystrophy. More information is available at crosslights.ca 

Last week a well-received post was made in this very section showing some of the more notable displays that I’ve come across so far. That list has been updated to include Princess Ave and two others and can be seen at https://ebrandon.ca/buzzpost.aspx?buzz_id=598
