Bell Avenue Lights

Our 2021 Show Has Ended

Our 2021 light show is now over. Stay tuned for details about the 2022 show. Visit our Facebook page for the latest updates.

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.

HOW TO VISIT

Our show begins every night at 5:30PM. Most days it ends at 9:30PM, but on Fridays and Saturdays it runs until 10:30PM. When you arrive, tune to 106.5FM to enjoy the show.

  • Traffic gets heavy on the weekends, especially as we approach Christmas. Consider visiting on a weekday night to avoid the crowd.
  • For safety, shows may not run during bad weather.
  • Please do not block our neighbors’ driveways or use them to turn around. Feel free to use our driveway instead. Also, keep in mind that Bell Avenue is just a small circle. Instead of turning around, go straight by our house and around the block to see some other lights!
  • Be respectful of our neighbors and try not to make too much noise. This is a very quiet neighborhood and we’d like to keep it that way.
  • Please don’t roll down your windows with the music playing.
  • We suggest keeping your parking lights on for safety.

FIND US

We’re located at 1716 Bell Avenue in Chambersburg, PA.

If you go west out of Chambersburg on Route 30, look for a Sheetz on your left just before Route 30 traffic becomes two-way. Turn right on Sollenberger Road at the red light. Go exactly two miles (stay left to avoid Johnson Rd) and then turn right onto Bell Avenue just before the entrance to Majestic Ridge.

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.

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! 🎄 ...

We expect Friday and Saturday evenings to be especially busy as Christmas approaches. We sometimes play a shorter show to try to help with traffic and wait times. You may want to visit Monday thru Thursday to avoid the crowd. As a reminder, the show begins at 5:30 PM every night. It ends at 9:30 PM on most nights, but goes until 10:30 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. We hope you and your family have a special holiday season.🎄 ... See MoreSee Less
