 ABOUT THE LIGHT SHOW

When the switch is thrown on this year’s Guernsey County Courthouse holiday lights and music show, onlookers again will witness seasonal illumination amplified to a new scale never before seen in the local area.

The historic centerpiece of Downtown Cambridge comes alive with literally tens of thousands of colorful lights, synchronized to both traditional and contemporary holiday musical favorites.

The Courthouse lends its magnificent 1881 design to a intricately-choreographed 21st Century eye fest consisting of more than 44,000 lights, 15,000 of which will outline the structure’s unique architectural details. Sixty animated displays and a 23 Foot Mega-Christmas Tree with 2,600 plus lights and a pine Christmas tree with a 3-D star complete the holiday spectacle.

The Guernsey County Commissioners, the Cambridge/Guernsey County Visitors and Convention Bureau, the Cambridge Main Street Program, the Dickens Victorian Village and AVC Communications have expressed their pride in this extraordinary enhancement of what has become a local tradition. 

More Music Every Hour for this Christmas Season!
AVC designed the display, creating four different shows that will play throughout the holiday season. Each presentation makes use of more than 468 electrical circuits, each computer controlled in one-fourth-of-a-second increments and painstakingly synchronized to a holiday soundtrack. This year we introduce a new "host" for the show and as always features contemporary and traditional music, including kids favorites and  spectacular display's on the front of the courthouse, the lawn and on US Bank across the street..
 
Each hour features a wide variety of music. The show features children's Christmas favorites, one song actually sung by Cambridge area 5th graders! A show featuring contemporary Christmas favorites, a traditional/contemporary Christmas music show featuring the well known local saxophonist Gordon Hough is followed by the ever popular modern Christmas music show. This show is considered the crowd favorite. All shows include a 23 Foot Mega-Christmas Tree with 2,600 plus lights and updated presentations from years past for 2012. Each hour will have 56 minutes of music & lights!  

Nearly a thousand man hours were needed to originally design the first display; install the lights and electrical systems; and coordinate the lights to the music in 2007.

Cambridge and Guernsey County invite you to come and enjoy the Dickens Victorian Village and the charm of this 19th century landmark, complimented by this dramatic display of state-of-the-art lighting technology.

The Guernsey County Courthouse Holiday Light Show is a gift to the community from local resident, Grant Hafley, and is a joint effort of AVC Communications, the Guernsey County Commissioners, the Cambridge/Guernsey County Visitors and Convention Bureau, the Cambridge Main Street Program and the Dickens Victorian Village.
