Lights Alive! Drive-Thru Light Show, the exciting holiday drive-through tradition, continues with its nearly mile-long high tech Christmas celebration opening this month.
“Our drive-thru holiday light display features computer generated designs and is synced to a modern soundtrack to the entire length,” said creator Matt Johnson, Creative & Technology Development, Living Light shows. “It’s immersive and family-friendly, with a one-of-a-kind soundtrack with modern high-energy, up-beat, non-traditional remixes as well as popular Christmas classics.”
Local creators Matt and Melissa Johnson’s innovative work has been featured on ABC’s “The Great Christmas Light Fight” and featured on Good Morning America, Nightline, NBC News, The Late Show, Yahoo!, Buzzfeed and more. “Our show is not your traditional light show! There are no inflatables, or characters,” said Melissa. “Even the music is not traditional Christmas music; it is a custom soundtrack composed of Dubstep, EDM, hip hop, and movie clips. It feels like a dance party!”
The Second Annual Lights Alive! is a 100% computer-controlled, musically synchronized, drive-thru light show experience. The entire show uses RGM pixels with embedded computer micro-chips, meaning more effects than what can be done with Christmas lights. The nearly mile-long attraction is the first of its kind in Texas and showcases innovative new lighting technologies which captivate viewers of all ages.
Gates open on Nov. 20 for this spectacular event, which is located at the National Shooting Complex near Loop 1604 West and Culebra Rd. in the Alamo Ranch area.
The show runs nightly through Jan. 3, 2021.
Guests can park at the end of the drive-thru light show to walk through the Winter Wonderland. Here families and friends can enjoy Christmas treats, create holiday crafts for loved ones, shop at vendor booths, take photos with Santa, and view the 50-foot tree.
“A highlight of the experience is our 50-foot tall animated Christmas light show tree with its unique animations,” said Matt. “It’s a great place for photos with the family and offers a spectacular vantage point to view our drive-thru light show down the hill.”
Family priced at only $30 per car, when purchased in advance on-line, this event is perfect for the whole family! Start a fun new family tradition this year. While you enjoy this event with your family and friends, you are helping to give the gift of family to local foster children. A portion of proceeds will benefit 1 Hope for Kids Foster Program.
