The First Baptist Church Of Glencoe’s Annual Christmas Light Show will kick off Sunday December 2, 2018.
The lights will come on at 6:30 PM. There is no charge, just simply drive up and enjoy the lights. They will have a sound system for the lighting ceremony so you are more than welcome to line up on the street in front of the church. If you want to watch from the warmth of your car anytime while the lights are on, be sure to tune your radio to 90.5 FM.
The lights will run from December 3 – December 31. The lights are on from 5:00 – 10:00 PM Sunday – Thursday and 5:00 – Midnight on Friday and Saturday Nights.
Every year they strive to make the show better and over the past few years, it has increased in technical complexity. They started out with incandescent mini lights, like you would find on any old Christmas tree. However, six years ago they bought their first smart set of LED lights and have began to convert the show over to smart LEDs also known as pixels. This is the first year the entire show will be using pixel lights.
The pixels allow them to control each individual bulb and change it to any color or brightness. In fact this year they will have over 30,000 of the smart pixels.
It takes a team of approximately 20 people, starting in October to construct the display, however planning began in August.
They put in all of their time and resources because they love to see everyone come out and enjoy the lights. They hope it serves as a reminder to them of the true meaning of Christmas.
