The "Blinky" Show!

"Nothing Like You've Seen Before"

We had so much fun changing the show as we went last year,
we decided to do it again.

The show is on the north side of the parking lot, next to the "facilities".
(Don't be fooled by the presence of lights on both sides of the parking lot.)
Just look for all the blinking lights, and tune your radio to hear the music (90.5 FM).

Come out and see what we have, and then come back for more.

We look forward to seeing you!!!

 Only Two Things
Stop the Show

Did you know there are only two things that can stop our show?
1)  Lack of Electricity.  
If the power goes out, we will be closed.

2)  Ice on the hill.
On the 8/10 mile ride around the park, there is one point behind the dam that dips down almost 30 feet (measured straight down), around a hairpin curve, then back up to the water level.  If it is found that this area is too slippery, we have to close the show.  

We apologize if this happens on the night you have come out to see it.  
Please try again another night.  



We are ALL Volunteers

Lebanon's Winter Wonderland is a community event provided to you by a group of volunteers dedicated to keeping
alive the memory and feelings that displays of yester-year did for all of us.

We actively invite you to participate by volunteering in any capacity that you can.

Like many activities these days, we are dependent on the talents and generosity of the people of the Lebanon area
to make this display work. We achieve our financial needs through donations. 
Contributions can be made through the internet. See the donate button in the top right corner of these pages.
You can also donate as you enter the park to see the display.

Join us the third Thursday of each month (except November & December) for our get-together @ Legendary Creations - 6PM. 

Exciting opportunities to help: 

Winter weather, with or without snow, is hard on the displays.
Many people have given countless hours to create and to setup the displays.
We want to honor their work by maintaining the displays in the best condition possible. 
Join us and have a lot of fun while doing great things for your friends and neighbors, 
Horner Park, and the community as a whole.

Helping with "Blinky"

Want to know how "Blinky" works?  Perhaps you have ideas for new and varied props, music, etc.

We are looking for people to help with all of the display.  
We are also looking for talented people to work on the newest version of "Blinky".  
This takes people and time.  
If you are a person, and have some time to be part of something really nice, we would love to see you.
(If you are not a person, but are reading this - please contact us as soon as possible.  Show business awaits!!!)


Experience with electricity, lighting,
wood working, music, and computer sequencing would be appreciated,
but is definately not a requirement.  


If you are willing to spend the time, we start training at any time so that we are up and ready to start putting it together in March.  
(Yes - MARCH!)  Contact Al Gerdes @ 618 537-6248 for more information. 

We hope you enjoy this year's display!
