With the computers of today, it is not uncommon for people to set their outdoor Christmas lights to music, but one Queensland, Australia neighborhood is going all out, designing several different musical light shows for people to enjoy.
The Ormeau Christmas Light Display is a holiday production by neighbors on Olivevale Street in Ormeau Queensland. The event has become a bit of a tradition for the neighborhood, and this year they hoped to make it the best show ever.
Besides providing visitors with a spectacular light show, the neighborhood also has 5 snow machines for those who prefer a white Christmas, as well as a Santa house, and a singing "Gingie", one of the animated characters from the movie "Skrek".
Ben Gus, a 31-year-old man who lives in the neighborhood, put together this year's light show. Using a variety of traditional Christmas songs such as Carol of the Bells, Jingle Bells, Rocking Around the Christmas Tree and Little Drummer Boy, Ben mixes in "party" songs like Thunderstruck and Party Rock Anthem. The bled of music and lights makes for a dazzling display.
In one part of the show, a gingerbread man appears to be singing Little Drummer Boy, his mouth "moving" by way of lights.
The light show runs every night through New Year's Eve, lasts approximately one hour and is broadcast through a PA system, as well as through a local radio channel.
