Welcome to Christmas in Townsend.com
The website for the computerized Christmas light display in Townsend, MA!
Christmas in Townsend is not your typical Christmas light display - it's a show!
It has been yet another amazing year of Christmas In Townsend. This has been our third year and we had record turnouts. All of the publicity was due to an awesome write-up in the Sentinel and Enterprise as well as a video segment on the Groton Channel News. Thanks to the generosity of the hundreds if not thousands of people who saw the show we have collected over 1000 pounds of food for the TEO !!! Thank you very much for all the support. In case you were unable to view the show or just wanted to see it again we have videos of all the songs on our website. We hope this is not the last year of Christmas In Townsend. I am going off to college next year and am not sure if I will have the time to do all of the setup needed to make the display what it is. That being said I certainly hope I will have the time to have another show next year. Until then keep posted to the Facebook page where I will post updates about any progress made on the show during the year.

The 2011 Season was amazing and went way beyond my expectations, we had hundreds of people see the show this year and at one time on Dec. 23rd there were 18 cars in the driveway viewing it at once! The take down is complete. I would just like to thank all of you who came out to see the show and told your friends about it as well, and especially the Townsend Times, who wrote an amazing article which alerted many about the show. As for next year it will be bigger and better with about 12,000 more lights !!!!!! That makes for a lot of off season work for me, but the show should be looking sweet in November. Some initial plans include 3 leaping arches, all of the windows being not just white and red, but also green, and adding to our mini tree collection by creating 8 more RGW mini trees which will form a small “grove”. I’m sure there will be more added but that is what is planned for now. I will probably make about 3 more controllers to help power the new features and also do some heavy duty electrical reconfiguration. Well that should keep me busy ’till November until them you can checkout the progress here or on our Facebook page, and if you want to remember how the show looked you can always check out the videos from the show!
