Two More Days!!!

Hello Everyone!!

Two more days and we’re BACK!! 

All three nights this weekend, Friday and Saturday 6,7, and 8 PM. Sunday…6 and 7 PM. 

Now to the important stuff…Crouse Hospital Night will be December 22. 

TSO Night…December 23 (bring your lighters and wave em in the air…)

All of this leads up to the biggest night of all, Christmas Eve!! One BIG BIG BIG show at 7 PM, culminating in a visit by the “big man, top dog, big cheese” of Christmas, Santa Claus himself. (Don’t tell anyone but I hear he’s making an incredibly FLASHY entrance…). 

But, this weekend, don’t forget to stop by, grab some candy, and help us show our appreciation for the great work that the folks at the Food Bank of Central New York do for those less fortunate. 

Thanks for reading…SEE YOU FRIDAY!!

What A Weekend!!!

Wow…it was cold, it was snowing just enough to make the display a little more beautiful, and the kids were dancing in the street. What a great weekend it was. If you missed it, there’s always next weekend. But try to come…it’s gonna be great!!

Reminder: we are dark tomorrow.

But…we’ll be back on Friday, just 5 short days away, with more lights and sounds of the Christmas season. And candy. Lots and lots of candy.

Thank you for making our weekend special. We are looking forward to seeing everyone once again on Friday, December 14 at 6, 7 and 8 PM!!

Thank You!!

Weekend #3!!

Hello, Everyone!!

Happy Friday. I hope everyone has had a great week and is looking forward to the weekend.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you here this weekend. We’re back at it again tonight and tomorrow night at 6, 7 and 8 PM. The Food Bank is what we work for and hopefully it’ll be a great weekend full of lights and music of the season for everyone.

Reminder: we’re dark on Sunday night, but next weekend, the 14-16, we’ll be lit up (literally, not figuratively) all 3 nights.

If you can’t join us, have a great weekend.

Week 2!!

What a great night to end the week!!

The wee ones were dancing in the street (and the mud…) and the weather was almost perfect, even though it wasn’t 70 degrees it was still very warm for this time of the year. What a great night.

We will be back next Friday and Saturday for more fun, music and lights of the Christmas season next Friday and Saturday nights. Don’t forget, we are dark next Friday.

We hope you’ll consider stopping by and helping us support the great work that the Food Bank of Central New York does for our area. Almost 12 MILLION MEALS in 11 counties per year. That’s a lot of food, and there is an increasing need for them. So please, help us and their mission. THANK YOU!! Have a great week.

Week 2!!!

Hello Everyone:

Welcome to week #2 at Koehler Family Christmas!!

We are back once again with lights and music for the season tonight and tomorrow night at 6, 7 and 8 PM, and Sunday a6 6 and 7 PM. Come by and have a great experience with synchronized lights and music and get in the Christmas Spirit with us.

Our first weekend for 2018!!!

Hello, everyone. Happy Sunday! Just a reminder, we’re dark tonight. 

Just a few reminders: our web page,, has a lot of information about show times and hours, how to listen, and how to get here. Also, dark nights are included there and in the event of lousy weather that makes you unsafe trying to get here, such as a bad lake effect storm, we’ll announce closings there and here on FB. 

I think this was one of the best opening weekends we’ve ever had in terms of audience, and despite the fact that the weather last week really hurt us, overall it turned out better than we had expected. Thank you to everyone for your support. 

We’ll be working hard this week getting new sequences tweaked so we can get right back at it next Friday and Saturday at 6, 7 and 8 PM and Sunday at 6 and 7. 

Have a great week, everyone, thanks again to everyone who turned out, and see you next Friday!! 

Saturday Night!!

Well, the weather outside is frightful. And damp. Very damp. But…we’ll try it anyway and see what happens. Should be interesting. But the radar says that the rain is stopping and it’s actually kind of mild here. So come on out, bring your sunglasses and help us help the great people at the Food Bank of Central New York!!


Hello Everyone:

Wow!! What a great night. The moon was out, it wasn’t too cold (until the very end…) and we were working right up until the very end before the first show started. I think a great time was had by all.

We hope you’ll get here for the opening weekend… to be continued right here tomorrow night, weather permitting, for shows at 6, 7 and 8 PM.

Don’t forget, we’re dark on Sunday, November 25!

Thank you to everyone that stopped by tonight, and thanks also for helping us support the Food Bank of Central New York and the awesome work that they do in 11 counties across Central New York.

Some “THANK YOUs” Would Be Nice!!

Before it gets to be much later in the season, we’d be remiss if we didn’t say THANK YOU to some people that have made it easier for us to help out the Food bank Of Central New York. Please give a hearty handshake to these fine folks and support them whenever you can:

The GREAT guys and gals and United Rentals in East Syracuse.

Ted and Amy In The Morning on 93-Q


Dark Nights 2018


These are nights that, regardless of the weather, when we’ll be dark . Remember, these do not include weather nights. Keep checking back, especially if the weather is wet or very snowy, as we tend to err on the side of caution to protect peoples’ safety (Remember, your Mom always said that electricity and water don’t mix…) We will announce if we have to cancel in plenty of time.
