Thank You For a Great First Year

The lights at Christmas in Brewster are now dark. Thank you to those of you who stopped by to check out the lights and for all of the kind words about the display. While the blinking and the flashing is done for 2009, be sure to stop back next year, the day after Thanksgiving, for what we hope to be a bigger and better display with lots of new elements and songs.

For information on how we accomplish all this, be sure to check out the blog.

We are broadcasting on 93.5 FM Be sure to tune your radios to 93.5 so that you can enjoy the show to the fullest. Update 12/14: The new FM transmitter has arrived and the sound quality has vastly improved!

Show Information:

  • We’re located next to the Fire Station on East Main St., Brewster, OH 44613
  • The show runs from the Friday after Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve
  • If you choose to turn off your headlights, please keep your parking lights on for safety
  • Tune your radio to 93.5 FM to hear the music and watch the light show from the warmth of your own car.
  • Please respect our neighbors and do not block their driveways, park on their lawns or leave trash anywhere.
  • Please be aware of the Fire Station next door. Give any approaching emergency vehicles the right-away, and leave their driveway clear at all times.
  • Please do not turn around in the neighbors’ driveways.

From our family to yours… Have a very Merry Christmas and may God bless you and your family.
