Take 50,000 bulbs and make them dance

No one quite does Christmas light overexuberance like the Americans. But in this lighting display, at least it’s for a good cause, raising money for Riley Hospital for Children & The Riley Children's Foundation.

Designed, sequenced and programmed by Nick Watkins of Wabash, of Indiana, the sequence uses 160 channels of computer controlled lighting and over 6,500 feet of extension cord.

See what happens when 50,000 bulbs meet dance music courtesy of Derude’s song ‘sandstorm’.
