Hello, Everyone!!

First thing, we’re dark tonight.

Secondly, our first TSO Night went well, except for a couple of software issues that were ironed out before the last show. Our apologies to everyone, but it was a pretty sreious software issue that we got fixed. Thank you to everyone for their patience, but I think we ultimately put on a great show. Thank you again for all of your support, both for us and the Food Bank of CNY.

We’re back Sunday, weather permitting, with shows at the regular times of 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 PM.

The next big event is our Christmas Eve show, at 7 PM. It will run a bit longer than our usual shows, with Santa arriving with goodies for all in attendance at 7:40 PM. It promises to be a DOOOOZIE!!

The following Saturday, December 28, will be our last TSO Show, showing for all three shows at the usual times. Our final night of the 2013 season will be Sunday night, December 29, with three shows. Please note that we will be dark on Friday, December 27.

Another Great Week!!

We start our last show of the week in 30″, but just to remind everyone, our TSO Shows commence next Friday, December 20, at 6:30. And don’t forget, we’re dark next Saturday, December 21. We’ll have a regular schedule of shows a week from today, December 22, then our CHRISTMAS EVE EXTRAVAGANZA at 7 PM Tuesday, December 24!!

Sincere thanks to those who came tonight, and to those who persevered with us Friday night and last night. We made it through to see another day.

Thasnk you again to everyone who supports what we do, and supports the Food Bank of Central New York.

Have a great week, stay warm, and see you Friday!!

Sunday, December 15

Happy Sunday, Peeps!! To everybody who persevered right along with us last night, under difficult conditions, THANK YOU!! We’ll be back at it again tonight, usual times, 6:30, 7:30, 8:30. It’ll be a little warmer, so we will put out the sound system. You may find yourself in a video tonight too!!

Tonight, December 14

Well, we’re gonna give it the old college try this evening, despite the winter storm warning. I am not going to put the sound system out tonight…I’m betting that there won’t be many of you outside dancing in the streets tonight!! As always, you can listen in your nicely heated cars to our musical portion, on 90.7 mHz FM. We’ll come and give out the candy to everyone. DRIVE SAFELY!!!


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!!!

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!!!
