It’s all about the GLOW Up this season and in tandum with the trend, dozens of business’ across the board have taken this trending term to all new levels and with redefined meanings!
Historically, and up until a couple years ago, the winter months had little to offer when it came to FYE options and 99% of any events avail were strictly limited to the indoors. In fact, it was rare to find anything to do other than the standard mall/movie/museum default activities, nonetheless an event that was hosted outdoors, and lent excitement at the very mention of to boot!
Well, how things have changed!
One of the biggest winter month attractions trends that has grown hugely in popularity throughout the recent years is that of outdoor light shows. Typically using LED lights, business establishments all over the US have been putting their individual, creative, and brilliant spins to the overall story line and themes of their light shows, often using hundreds of thousands of lights for a walk-thru or drive-thru light show experience to be enjoyed by all. From the very start of this phenomenon, these light shows have been a terrific success, extending a fun, unique way to embrace the winter months, and the outdoors, all at once.
Luckily for us, we have a plethora of offerings that fall within the light show arena and one of them just so happens to be a skip and a hop away from our little gen AND it is by far one of the top three best, most A-M-A-Z-I-N-G GLOW SHOWS that I have personally experienced.
