Hey, folks. Thanks for your patience last night, we did get two shows off with a slight technical difficulty, but all worked out in the end. We’re back to normal (no snide remarks, please…) tonight, with shows starting at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30. We’re busily preparing for Friday night’s TSOnly shows, also. If you come by tonight, you’ll get a teensy weensy taste of what’s to come then.

We’re also keeping an eye on the radar for weather conditions tonight, as it is supposed to get crummy later. So far so good.

Thanks for your support and for your support of the Food Bank of CNY!!!

Friday the 13th!!!

Hey, folks…

Just a reminder that tomorrow night, Friday December 13, we will NOT be having a 6:30 show. The 7:30 show may be a tad late, so please be patient with us. It won’t be too late (I would guess 10 minutes, max). All other shows this weekend will run as scheduled, 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. See you tomorrow night!!!

Koehler Family Christmas


Hi Guys…

Sorry, but we’ll have to cancel the 6:30 show on Friday the 13th of December. And no, not because it’s Friday the 13th, but I have a prior commitment. We may be a tad bit late with the 7:30 show, but not too much, maybe only 5-10 minutes.

All other shows next weekend will run as planned.

My apologies, but I’m sure we will make it up to you when you see the show .



HUGE Success!!!

Holy Cow!!!

Words cannot describe the feeling we get when we see kids’ (and adults too…) faces LIGHT UP (pun intended) when our light show starts. It’s simply indescribable.

Thanks to everyone that made our weekend a spectacular success!! Our first ever ESM NIGHT was amazing. We had tremendous success for the Food Bank of CNY this weekend.

Next up: Next weekend will be our first ever DECA night, for both past and present DECA members, both for ESM and non-ESM members. That will be for all shows a week from tonight, December 15.

I also feel compelled to tell you again that our first TSOnly night will be Friday, December 20, for all shows as well.

Thank you, everyone, for making this weekend a SMASHING SUCCESS!!! Have a great week, and we’ll see you again next weekend!!!


Our First ES-M Night!!

Hi, Folks. After considerable discussion, we thought it would be a good idea to have an ES-M Night at Koehler Family Christmas!!

All comers will get a goodie-bag and a good time will be had by all!! We’re planning this ebent for December 8, Sunday, at all shows, starting at 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 PM.

Come one, come all….current, past, and future ES-Mers!!!

And remember your donation for the FOOD BANK OF CNY!!




HOLY COW!!! I’m speechless. And that takes a lot.

What a great weekend here at KFC. Lots of cars, kids dancing in the street, some adults, too. I think a great time was had by all. It was great to see some old friends, and we made some new ones as well. And most importantly, we had a great turnout for the Food Bank of Central New York.

We’ll have a new show all ready for you guys next weekend, a new mix of some old standards and new favorites.

We’ll have the static display up and running TUESDAY night, December 3 through Thursday, December 5, then it’s right back to work on Friday, December 6, for three shows starting at the usual times. DON’T FORGET, WE’LL BE DARK ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 7.

Thanks again for your support of our efforts, and have a great week. See you all next weekend!!

And, BTW, to the couple from MINOA that stopped by with 5 bags of canned goods, (you know who you are, but I don’t) THANK YOU for your very generous contribution!! Come back again, I owe you more candy!!!
