One neighborhood in California has banded together to create what is arguably the best Christmas lights show so far.
According to the NY Daily News, residents of an entire block on Manning Street in Yucaipa, California, got together for the fourth year to create their synchronized Christmas lights show. It has been attracting drive through visitors since the beginning. So many, in fact, that the organizers have had to ask people not to block their driveways. The light show also has several YouTube videos posted and its own Facebook page.
But this year they have outdone themselves by treating everyone to an aerial view of the lights thanks to a camera on a drone — and the result is pretty impressive.
Two videos of the Christmas displays lighting up the sky were uploaded to YouTube by Jeff Maxey on Monday — one of Transiberian Orchestra’s “Wizards of Winter” and another of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You.” Together, they already have over a million combined views. And no wonder — it is an amazing sight.
The organizers of the light show haven’t said how many lights are involved, but the amount of time and number of lights needed to set up the displays has to be mind-boggling. The Inquisitr reported a Texas family who created a Disney Frozen light display last week that took over 25,000 lights synchronized to “Let It Go,” so just imagine how many it takes to light up these sixteen houses on Manning Street.
According to the neighborhood’s Facebook page, the Christmas light show consists of 14 songs right now, but they are hoping to add more.
“We want everyone to enjoy the show and all the hard work we put into making this better every year,” they said.
