Over 16,000 computer-animated lights synchronized to music
A sequence from the 2022 show
For over 40 years, at the beginning of December, the town of Sechelt, BC, has held a celebration to turn on the Christmas lights along the streets. A mainstay of this event is a singalong of the song Light the Lights, which the Dickson’s wrote and recorded in the 1990s. I first heard the song in 2018 and thought it would be an excellent fit for our light show. I mentioned this to Lynne and Reg when I saw them at a concert, and they graciously agreed to lend the master CD from which I created this sequence.
Here’s an article about Lynne and Reg’s nearly three-decade involvement with the Light the Lights event.
The above is an abridged version of the song. Hear the full version here.
