Bright Halloween

While the Christmas light show is a time-honored tradition that’s only improved with the invention of LED lights and programming software, one Chaska couple hopes to start a Halloween light show trend.

Tim Meyer and Leslie Block love Halloween, and when Meyer—a self-professed “lights nerd”—got his Christmas light programming software a week before Halloween in 2014, he and Block rigged up a little show on the fly. Last year the show grew, but the couple says this year’s show will be their biggest so far, as they continue to learn the software, collect more lights and gather other props.

Starting in mid-October, visitors will see singing pumpkins, projections of ghosts and tombstones outlined in lights, as well as one large light matrice timed to music. “We don’t get into the gory part of Halloween,” Block says, noting that the show isn’t designed to be scary.
