Bigger and better than ever

Stephen Blue’s “Deltaville Lights” display for 2013 includes a light show synchronized to music.

More than two dozen lighted trees, some as tall as 22 feet, have transformed the open field at Mason Realty in Deltaville into a Christmas fantasy forest at Stephen Blue’s “Deltaville Lights” for 2013.

The display features more than 90,000 lights, including a 37,000-light display synchronized to Christmas music via 200 channels of computer control. Visitors can tune their radios to FM 100.9 when at the display to listen to the music as the lights swirl, and figures dance in time to the music. “It’s well worth the drive to Deltaville,” said one visitor.

For the first time, visitors can walk through the Christmas display for an upclose view. There are lighted scenes of a dog village, snowmen and toys, and a boat and fish in a pond of lights, complete with an iceberg and lighthouse.

The light show, which is located at 16598 General Puller Highway next to J&W Seafood in Deltaville, operates from 5-11 p.m. nightly through Friday, January 3.

Blue started making elaborate Christmas light displays in 1996 at his parents’ house when he was 12 years old. He moved his display to the current location in 2002 where his shows have gotten bigger every year.
