WELCOME TO

Bell Avenue Lights

All Good Things Must Come to an End

Thanks to everyone who made our show part of their family tradition! We have been running a light show in Chambersburg for nearly 15 years. In 2022, we moved, and we will be taking a year off from running a show. Stay tuned as we may work on a similar project in the future! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for the latest updates.

Fortunately, there are some great light displays nearby in Chambersburg and Waynesboro that we hope your family will enjoy.

WHAT IS IT?

Our home is decorated with thousands of LED lights, each individually controlled by a computer. The lights turn on, off, and change color in perfect time to music that we transmit on 106.5 FM.

Our show has been running every season for over 10 years and has become a tradition for our family and others. We invite you to stop by and enjoy the show.

ABOUT US

Mike owns a computer service company, CermakTech. Heather was an elementary school music teacher for 15 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. We both come from families who were known for hanging a lot of holiday lights. I guess this is what happens when you combine computers, lights, and music!

We’ve been running our holiday light show for over 10 years — longer than we’ve had children! Today, we are a family of five, with kids ranging from 2 to 9 years old.

We hope that our display will bring some joy and entertainment to members of our community. No matter what you celebrate during this wonderful time of year, we thank you for making us a part of your traditions.

HOW IT WORKS

Obviously, these aren’t store-bought lights. Each LED light has a microchip, allowing it to be individually controlled by a Raspberry Pi computer that runs the show. Programming each song is a time-consuming process and usually takes hours for each minute of each song.

We have a low-power radio transmitter running at 106.5FM. To abide by FCC regulations, it’s not very powerful and you’ll only be able to pick up our station when you’re near the house.

We will certainly miss you this year. This became our yearly outing. We would pack up the kids and a thermos of hot chocolate and head over and watch until the girls were content. Thanks for being part of our lives since we moved here almost 6 years ago!

Loved visiting the last few years. Thank you!

I have been going every year all 15 years. Makes me sad I won't get to see it this year.

Thanks so much for the wonderful display! Happy New Year!

Thank you for another spectacular show. Happy new year!

We anticipate a busy night on Bell Avenue this evening. We'll be running a shorter show than usual to help reduce the traffic. Please be patient with others and drive safely. The show will be running from 5:30 PM until 10:30 PM. We plan to keep the lights up until January 1st, so please feel free to stop by tomorrow night or next week and you'll likely have the street all to yourself! 🤣 Happy holidays to all! 🎄 ...

Thanks so much for the work and creativity you put into this. We've been out twice this season with different people who were in from out of the area. They were all very impressed!
