Welcome to the Downs Family Christmas Light Ministry
The 9th annual light show is set to begin on Thursday, Nov 26th 2015. Every year we start the show on the night of Thanksgiving, so the start date each year changes a bit from year to year.
Note: we had to change our FM station this year to 99.9 FM, since a new radio station started this year in Norman and used our old channel.
Follow us on our Facebook fan page. We'll be updating it throughout the year with pictures and comments.
As always, the show runs from 6:00 PM to Midnight, 7 days a week unless we have bad weather. Check this website or the Facebook fan page for weather updates.
Note that when visiting the show, notice that areas in the field that have puddles due to rain, or are otherwise potential 'get your car stuck' locations are marked off with traffic cones. Please try to avoid these areas if at all possible.
The song list for 2014 contained ten songs, plus our usual funky intermission. We don't list our songs for the new year before the show starts, so you'll just have to wait for this years playlist. Here was the playlist for 2014:
|Christmas With a Capital C||Go Fish|
|Wizards in Winter||Trans Siberian Orchestra|
|Christmas Eve Sarajevo||Trans Siberian Orchestra||Joy to the World||Go Fish||Jingle Bells||Cast of Glee|
|Run Run Rudolph||Hanson|
|Do You Hear What I Hear?||Spiraling|
|Dueling Jingle Bells||US Navy Band|
|O Holy Night||David Phelps|
|12 Days of Christmas||Relient K|
The intermission song was a strange song called Fruitcake, by the Superions (remember the guy from the B-52's?). If you're in the mood for a funky holiday album, check them out!
The background of the introduction is the first minute of What Child is This by Michael W Smith.
As always, every song we use can be downloaded from iTunes. We hope you buy the music and help support these awesome artists.
In 2011, we received a visit by the Ugandan Orphans Choir, an amazing group of kids from Uganda that travel the US singing and dancing, in hopes of raising awareness about the problems back home in their native Uganda. We hated to get them out on a cold night, but couldn't resist a picture.
We thought everybody might enjoy this video we made in 2010 while setting up one of the two giant trees. This is a time-lapse video that compresses two hours of work into two minutes. Enjoy!
