Show Your Support!

Do you like the light display? Then please consider showing your support by making a donation to the Wilton Food Pantry! We’ve been so blessed by all of your wonderful messages and compliments (and even a care package!), it’s clear that folks are coming together around the display this season. With all that attention, we thought it would be a good idea to channel it towards a worthy cause.

The display is our gift the community and comes with no strings attached, but if you would like to give something to the community as well, please consider making a donation!

Thank you and Merry Christmas!

UPDATE: As of December 27th, $844.08 has been collected. That’s 5275.5 pounds of food!
Way To Go! Every Little Bit Counts! Keep It Up!

The donation tally is updated almost daily on the donations page.

Facebook!

Wilton Lights! is now on Facebook. Our website referral statistics tell us Facebook is where everyone is talking about the display, so we figured we might as well give the display some presence there. If the display is down for whatever reason, we’ll be sure to make note of it there so folks don’t waste a trip down.

And just to keep things interesting, we’ve posted a few “behind the scenes” pictures to Facebook which aren’t available on this website!

You can “become a fan” today!

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for the comments!

We just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their nice comments and holiday wishes! We’ve been getting a lot of feedback (too much to reply to all of it) and reading your kind words has felt great and made us feel awesome about putting up the display. Keep ’em coming! We can’t reply to all of them but we do read them all!

Be sure to let us know which song(s) you like best. We’ll most certainly be changing the playlist for next year and we’ll try to keep/improve the ones you all like the best! Also, if you have questions about something send them along as well, and we’ll set up a page of answers here on the website.

On a related note – Please remember to keep your car radio down to a reasonable volume. We heard one car from inside the house tonight (no joke!) and as much as we love Christmas music, we’ve been listening to these particular 11 songs all year while programming the animations, and we could use a break from them while we’re eating dinner or watching TV. Thanks!

The Lights Are On!

Radio Station SignWell… We got all excited (not to mention tired of folks asking us when things will be turned on) so we’ve decided to move the date to turn things on to today, December 2nd. The lights will be on 5-10 PM starting tonight at 1228 Main Street in Wilton, through January 6th. Just tune to 96.9FM to hear the music when you’re close enough to see the house.

Merry Christmas!

Major Milestone…

As of 11:50 PM Saturday night, the 21 foot mega tree is up and running. 96 strings of mini lights, 4 strings of strobe lights, and another 2 strings of mini lights on the star (9,821 lights in total) are all working great. Still need to tighten things up before a good wind comes through, but otherwise it’s good to go.  Just 2 more minor (but important) projects to complete and we’ll be ready for showtime.

Christmas 2009 Preparations

We’re well on our way to have the display ready. in the next couple weeks. Here are some pics of what we’ve been working on.

The star topper on what will be our 21 foot tall tree of lights, though it doesn’t look like it from directly below. We actually have this turned on most nights if you happen to be driving by…

The “mini trees” are out and ready to go.

The 6′ star which will go on the roof just got a completed frame. All it needs now is some paint and wind-free day to get it up there.
