Merry Christmas everyone! With 2020 being what it is, we’ve had some extra time to put something together for this year (silver lining?). It’s still much smaller than what we had at our old location, but it’s better than nothing.
But we need your help. The last time we set up at our new location (2017) we had a few folks who did not respect our neighbors, and we really can’t have that. So we’re asking that if you come to see the lights that you abide by the following:
- Do not turn around or park in any driveway except ours. The road loops around back to Orchard Drive so there is no reason to turn around anyway.
- It is not okay to park across the street. Pulling over on our side is fine.
- Keep your radio down so it cannot be heard outside of your car. It’s louder and carries farther than you think (especially heavy bass). Step outside and check sometime.
- Do not honk.
…and just as importantly, if you tell anyone about the lights please tell them about these things too. Most folks hear about us via word of mouth, and these things are important to mention. If folks continue to disrespect our neighbors then we can’t do this anymore, and haven’t we lost enough this year?
So with that out of the way, we’ll be up and running at 38 Applegate Lane in Wilton from 5:00 to 9:30 pm until Christmas, and then until the first relatively warm day after that so we can take everything down (or Dec 31st, whichever comes first). We will also shut down if traffic gets out of hand and our neighbors are not being respected.
If you come in to Applegate Lane by way of Applewood Lane then you’ll already be on the right side of the road. Just take the first left after Applegate onto Applewood if you’re coming from Wilton, and then another left on to Applegate to find us. Once you’re here you can tune to 96.9 FM, park in OUR driveway, or stop on OUR side of the road.
Please remember that we may be down some nights due to extreme weather or equipment issues. The lights we use aren’t your ordinary off-the-shelf Christmas lights and they’re vey sensitive to water issues. We’ll try to post on Facebook when we’re down but can’t promise.
Be sure to check out Bean’s Corner Lights. They’re about 7 minutes away, and have a much better parking situation.
From our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and best wishes for all of our other seasonal holidays this time of year. Or as we like to say, Merry Christma-kwanza-hanukkah! Blessings to all!
