Donations collected and delivered to Redkite $3,620, including $500 from Delta Electricity.

See a comparison of the hardware used to run the displays between 2007 and 2017.

At the start of December we were a little worried that the display may not be as popular as in previous years, and this was worsened by the poor weather we had pretty much all month, with barely a dry evening before Christmas Eve. The visitors were slow in building, but by the end of the second week we were getting an ever increasing line of cars visit every night. Thanks to everyone who visited, as we passed our $3000 target, and managed to raise $3,620 over the month.

We did 2 radio interviews and the Mercury done an excellent writeup in the paper, but no television station seemed interested enough to even return our email this year, which was a pity. One thing we changed this year was our music selection, but I think it lacked the punch of previous years, so in 2012 I have decided on 2 seperate shows, and Australian themed night, and a second show, both with a mix of old and new songs, and they will be on alternate nights.
