Dazzling Display of Lights - The Osborne Way

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights is an amazing display of lights during Christmas.

It is a vibrant and dazzling display of lights which dance to the tunes of awesome Christmas songs.

2015 was the last curtain call for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights.

Jennings Osborne

The tradition dates back to 1986 when an Arkansas based businessman named Jennings Osborne decided to fulfil a Christmas wish made by his youngest daughter.

The daughter's wish was to see the entire house covered and decorated with lights.

Although the house was quite big, the businessman went ahead to lighten up the entire house with about 1000 lights.

The tradition gradually increased and developed into a hobby for the Osborne's.

Year on year, it started getting bigger and better.

This has now reached to a stage where millions of dancing lights are illuminated every year including custom made light structures.

It was shifted from its original place of inception due to intervention by the local residents to the residential street at Disney's Hollywood Studio owing to support from Walt Disney, and later, to the streets of America (formerly New York Street) due to major renovation work at the residential street of Disney's Hollywood Studio.

5 Million Individual Lights

It is estimated that more than 5 million individual lights are in action with around 32 miles of extension cables that use a massive 800,000 watts of electricity.

Most of the lights used these days are LED lights which are much brighter than the normal lights and can be programmed to perform superior effects.

Also, there are many snow machines installed causing a flurry of artificial snow flakes made up by using about 100 gallons of snow fluid.

The lights are usually turned on at 6 PM. every evening during the display period.

Amazing Visual Experience

Entire buildings are covered with multi colored lights and presents a spectacular view of lights dimming and springing back to life at regular intervals of about 10-15 minutes.

It's breathtaking to watch the lights dance to the tunes of planned choreography of lights on some classical Christmas music.

One can hang around and stare at these lights for hours and spend quality time with the family, friends and the loved ones.

It is a great spot for taking pictures provided some manual exposure adjustments are done to the cameras especially when walking around in a flurry of snow flakes.

It is one of the most amazing experiences that one can witness in their lives.

This year, Santa Goofy joins the fun, making nightly appearances on the Streets of America.

You' ll be able to meet him in Goofy's Winter Wonderland, a special area set up right in Tri-City Square.

If someone is looking for a memorable Christmas celebration with their near and dear ones and an incredible display of dancing lights with music that stretches as long as their eye sights, Osborne Spectacle of Dancing lights is the place to be.
