Description: Holiday Light Display at Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead
The city of Overland Park will begin a new holiday tradition this year when it flips the switch on a light display set to music outside Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead, 13800 Switzer Road on November 28 through January 5.
Overland Park resident and technology entrepreneur, Mark Callegari, donated the display. The tree is part of a computerized lighting display, synchronized to music, created by Mark Callegari and was donated this year to the farmstead.
The centerpiece of the display is Callegari's own creation - a 22-foot, 700-pound plastic and metal tree called the "Ultimate Holiday Tree" - that was once featured on the HGTV show "All Out Christmas." The tree will be mounted on the outside of the buildings at Deanna Rose and will feature thousands of LED lights, giving the display a video-like effect.
VIEWING THE HOLIDAY LIGHT DISPLAY:
- People will be able to pull into the parking lot at Deanna Rose, tune their car radio to 98.5 FM and enjoy a light display choreographed to several popular holiday songs.
- The display will also include a whimsical tree forest, giant spheres and a 20-foot star that changes colors.
