Awesome show. I'm not sure how to tell everyone to shut their lights off. Awesome show. Will be back. Would recommend putting stakes to show the best spots for the show and maybe show when the next show is.

Amazing techno-light show that integrates Christmas music with a magnificent light show that's sure to please.Great find in Chapel Hill.Note to spectators- please don't park where you are blocking those around you from also enjoying the show. I know its challenging, but just be considerate of others...Also, TURN OFF YOUR LIGHTS! Including parking lights. Be courteous to others!!!

Worth the drive!! Say and listened to 5 different songs (tune radio to 107.1 FM) each of which altered the colors and display!About 20 cars were lined up on both sides of the road with their lights off to watch the show. Everyone I show videos of the show to are excited to see it in person.
