The 2016 Show is over!

Total Raised for Redkite: $3,300

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

This year we have 33,170 lights as part of the display. The lights are over for the year, but you can see images and video below.

A big thanks must also go to Mark Kristian for some last-minute Voiceovers for the show, and Coles Lithgow for the donation of $100 in lollies to hand out at the display.

We have implemented a Paypal donation, 100% of which will be used to cover the cost of upgrading and running the display, as well as covering the website hosting costs. See the link at the bottom of each page to donate.
