I hope to get video up for this year, but it may take awhile to edit.
This year's show includes
two laser lights, more strobe lights, and 16 MORE circuits, totaling 80!
Take the time to see the whole show as it is only 4 minutes long. Be sure
to tune your radio

The show is FREE, but donations are accepted

Last year's donations paid part of the cost for the 16 added circuits!
Thank you very much to all who donated.
TV6 did a spot on the news in 2006 for
my light show and here is what they said:
A Forsyth Township business owner has an
unusual Christmas light display, because it's run by a computer. At night,
Dale's Clock Shop
becomes a show of synchronized lights and music. Dale Weingartner welcomes
the public to view the three-minute show every night
during the holiday season. According to Weingartner, some people stay
for a while, since there is so much to see.
Weingartner says, "This year I have
64 separate circuits of lights that blink or go according to the music,
and it's just basically
run by computer and motion sensors and driveway sensors and all these
modules and 14 hour of programming and
55 hours of setting things up."
There is no charge to view the display,
although donations are welcome. Weingartner simply enjoys sharing his
creations with the public.
