COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) – Watching Christmas lights is a tradition for many during the holidays, and some College Station homes elevate their holiday exhibits and choreograph them to music.
Below are a few must-see shows that will put you and your family in the holiday spirit!
Court of Congress
In the Pebble Creek neighborhood, Sprucey, the MC of Dave Russell’s light show on Congressional Court, will guide you through an exciting musical experience. Russell says the show is about 12 minutes long and uses about six or seven songs from Christmas classics to Aggie’s war anthem to techno.
Russell said one of his favorite parts is seeing people’s reactions to the show.
“I love watching people dance here,” Rusell said. “It’s funny!”
The show runs from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. every night until New Years Eve.
Lights on Dayton is a well-known home in College Station for its musical lights and returns for its 6th year with new music and new displays.
Tim St. Martin, the owner of Lights on Dayton, says they asked people what they wanted to see with the animated show and tried to accommodate those requests this year.
St. Martin says his lights are a way to give back to the community.
“It’s something we do for the benefit of the community. It’s our way of giving back. We love to do it. We love to see smiles, to see children hanging out of car windows and singing along to the songs, ”said St. Martin.
St. Martin said the show is about 40 minutes long, but will condense it soon to make every night different and to make it easier to get around.
The lights are on weekdays from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. and on weekends from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. At Christmas and New Years, the lights will be on from 6:00 p.m. to midnight.
