Koehler Family Christmas


Hello, Peeps.

Well guys, it’s T minus 48 hours and counting until the huge Opening Night Extravaganza. There’ll be music for everyone…some Transsiberian Orchestra, some Christmas Classics, and new favorites. This is going to be the best year yet for Koehler Family Christmas.

We’ve already dropped 80 lbs of food items to the Food Bank of CNY today, courtesy of Jeanine and ESM. So, we’ve already gotten 10% of what we got last year. So we are already in good shape.

So…we’ll be starting the festivities at 6:30 Friday night, and have shows at 7:30 and 8:30 as well.

We had mentioned on FB and Twitter that there will have to be a couple of dark nights in December due to my work commitments. We’ll announce that on Monday. We’ll also have a couple of TSOnly nights, which are always a crowd favorite.

A reminder…please check our website here, our Twitter feed (Koehler Fam Xmas) and like our FB page. You’ll get weather updates, news and cool classic Christmas pictures. Remember, we don’t run the show in crummy wet weather, for safety concerns.

We will be running a static display (it will be on, just not animated with music) and we’ll be broadcasting HOLIDAY AMERICA RADIO on 90.7 nightly till 11:00 PM until light up. If the weather is uncooperative, we’ll shut down, but we’ll let you know through the usual outlets.

Oh, one more thing……BRING YOUR SUNGLASSES!!!


Some News!!!

Hi everyone. So, Halloween has come and gone, but you can see how well we did by watching Andrew Donovan’s crack reporting from WSYR, Channel 9 here in Syracuse. He and his photojournalist were here in the pouring rain for almost 2 hours compiling this story about our light show. They’ll be back soon, before the “big opening” on Black Friday to do a follow up and talk about our work on behalf of the Food Bank Of Central New York.

You can watch the story here:


In other news, the Halloween Sneek Peek went well. We had Halloween music synchronized to our light show, gave out lots of candy (snuk some for ourselves, too, tee hee) and worked out a few kinks with the display.

We also got our Twitter feed up and running. You can follow us @Koehlerfamxmas where you’ll get up to the minute news, events, special notices, and cancellations due to weather. Follow us, and tell your friends, please!!

We will be working hard over the next 24 days to get our “act together” for our Extravaganza on Black Friday, November 29. We’ll also have other events out in the community, which we will fill you in on when details are finalized. One thing that we can tell you, though, is that we’ll be having 2 TSOnly nights this year, one early on, and one towards the end of the season. So, you rockin’ Transsiberian Orchestra fans, bring your friends to our TWO TSOnly nights. Dates will be announced soon!!

As always, THANK YOU to those that have helped us along the way. We’ll be sure to bring you the BEST SHOW all season long!!
