Electric Light Fantasy

Four Nights of Exciting Holiday Shows!

Drive-in shows are the fastest growing events during this time of social distancing. Drive-in movies and concerts have been blossoming over the last couple of months and are in great demand as people are craving entertainment and socialization while also “keeping their distance”. We have partnered with Emerald Owl, Wilson Downtown Development Corporation’s (WDDC) light and sound resource for the last three Christmas celebrations during Candyland Christmas, to design a laser light show programmed and synchronized to Christmas music. This how, featuring laser lighting projected on professional smoke and haze machines and with the whirligigs with the backdrop, will be entirely unique as this type of show has not been done in any other community. We currently have all three weekends in December penciled in with the vendor so that we will not have any competition. As far as we are aware, Wilson would be the first in the state. The show would introduce many regional visitors to the Whirligig Park and Wilson, while giving WDDC the opportunity to highlight downtown businesses and non-profits.

Laser shows are perfect for drive-in events as they have the ability to travel sideways and may be viewed through the vehicle windshield, unlike fireworks where one must exit the vehicle to view above. The 20 minute show would last about the same amount of time as a quality fireworks show and would, therefore, offer the opportunity for multiple shows per evening.
