As we turn the circuit breakers down on the final show for the 2017 Season, we can only say that our friends and supporters will never cease to amaze and humble us. Without all of you supporting us, reposting and liking us and spreading the word, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. All of you are responsible for the success that we have seen and for all that we take over to the Food Bank of CNY. So…with that, we Thank You for all that you’ve done for us in prior years and this year in particular.
One special THANK YOU (in capital letters) to my family, and in particular, my wife, Jean. What she has had to endure this year has been, at times, incredibly frustrating. The house was covered (inside…long before the outside was) with pixels, wires, cables, glue, solder, and Cableguard boxes. Nonetheless, she didn’t say a word, let me get done what I had to, and helped when she could. Without her indulgence and patience, this wouldn’t happen. So, THANK YOU, and I Love You.
We’ll check in after we have hauled all of this to the Food Bank of Central New York. By the way, they do their work 365 days a year, not just during the Holiday Season, so if you are looking for a worthy organization to donate your time and energy to, look no further.
Thank you again to EVERYONE who made our 2017 Season the success that it turned out to be. Happy New Year to all, and to all, a good night!!!

Tonight, Saturday December 23…up in the air

Hello, everyone. We’re keeping an eye on the weather tonight…things are soaked and we’re already having some issues (and the display is not even running 😳😳) The weather dude says it’s supposed to get crappier later so we’re just waiting to see what Mother Nature holds in store for us in a few hours. Check here or twitter or always our FB Page for up to the minute info if we cancel. THANKS!! Keep your fingers crossed….

Week 3!!!

Hello, everyone. Wow, week 3 is in the books. Another amazing experience. I’d like to again thank everyone that came…it was great seeing people we work with and friends that come to support us, as well as making new friends that will support us for years to come. Everyone’s support of our efforts on behalf of the Food Bank is greatly appreciated.

We’re already getting ready for next weekend’s extravaganza. Friday night will be a regular night with shows at 6, 7 and 8 PM. Saturday is as well, but all 3 shows are of the “Classic Christmas” theme. Burl Ives, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and many of your classic favorites. Dress warmly, it’ll be a little longer Show than usual. And all our hard work culminates in our Christmas Eve Extravaganza. One show (about 45 minutes) with old and new songs, and a visit from Santa Claus and a little sugary sweetness for everyone that comes. Lights come up at 7 PM in what will be a truly great experience.

Have a great week, everyone, and we’ll see everyone later in the week. Again, thanks to everyone that made it out this weekend.


Hello, Everyone:
Wow, what a weekend. We can’t say THANK YOU enough to everyone that came out this weekend. I don’t ever recall having Kermit Lane that busy. It was a humbling experience to see all of you that came out to help us support the Food Bank of Central New York. Thanks again to everyone, and we hope you will join us again for another great night.

Next week…don’t forget, we’ll be dark on Saturday due to work commitments, but we’ll be back in action again on Friday with shows at the regular time, 6, 7 and 8 PM, and Sunday, 6 and 7 PM. Also, remember that if the weather is sketchy, check Facebook (Koehler Family Christmas), Twitter (@koehlerfamxmas), or first to be sure we’ll be up and running.

Finally…ICYMI…”Christmas Classics” night will be Saturday, December 23, for all shows, 6, 7 and 8 PM. Finally…our Christmas Eve Extravaganza will be Sunday, December 24, at 7 PM. It’ll feature a nice long show of your favorite Christmas music and lights, along with a visit from your friend and ours, SANTA CLAUS!!

Have a great week, everyone. Thanks again for making this weekend a very special one for all of us, and doing great stuff for the Food Bank of CNY!!

Another Great Weekend!!

Hello everyone:
It’s been another great weekend here at KFC. I’d like to thank everyone who stopped and watched and contributed to the Food Bank of Central New York. The SUPERMOON was amazing tonight, if you didn’t see it, it truly was a sight to behold.

Don’t forget, we’ll be up and running next Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the usual times. Also, one of the best nights of the year (in my professional opinion) happens next Saturday with our annual Trans-Siberian Orchestra night. All 3 shows will feature the amazing works of TSO!!

Finally, we’ve settled on December 23 as our CLASSIC CHRISTMAS night. Enjoy the classic works of Christmas music that you grew up with, all set to an amazing light show. All 3 shows on Classics Night will drive you down memory lane again! And…our “crown jewel” of the season, of course, is our magnificent Christmas Eve Show. One show on Sunday, December 24, that will feature an extra long musical program that will include a visit by the most famous Christmas Elf ever, Santa Claus!! Special goodies too! Festivities on Christmas Eve start at 7:00 PM.

So…have a great week. And thank you again for your support of our work to help the Food Bank of Central New York!!

TSO Night 2017!!!

Hello folks. Happy hump day. In case anyone was wondering, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA NIGHT this year will be on Saturday, December 9, for all shows (6, 7 and 8 PM). In case you’re wondering who they are, here’s a little taste of what you’ll be getting:

Have a great rest of the week!!

Dark Days (so far)

Good Evening Everyone:

First and foremost, from our family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!! Hopefully everyone is able to get some rest and some quality time with their families.

Next, our preliminary list of dark days. These are days that the display will be dark, due to some commitments that we cannot wiggle out of.
So far, it’s just November 26 and December 16.

Remember, though, that chances are that the weather here in CNY will not always be cooperative with our plans. Stay tuned here, on our Facebook page (Koehler Family Christmas) and on our Twitter feed ( @koehlerfamxmas) for latest info when the weather is in doubt.

We’ve been running the display as an “animated” display so far this week (moving and blinking but not synchronized to music) and will continue to do so.

We are on track for our big Opening Night Extravaganza on Friday, with shows at 6, 7 and 8 PM. We appreciate your continued support. Remember, everything we do supports the Food Bank of Central New York.

Hope to see you at our display soon!!
