We have a large mix of songs with a focus on upbeat songs. Our regular hours are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 6pm – 9pm. Any night of the week you can select a song to watch, any day of the week by clicking on the Control The Lights button above.
About Our Lights
Onan Family Lights is an animated holiday light display in Delano, MN that is open to the general public for viewing every night through Christmas from 6-9pm. Our lights are synchronized to music and you can pick a song to listen to and watch during normal show hours by clicking the Control The Lights button above.
Every light in our display can be individually controlled and include a single red, green, and blue LED. This means we can tell each LED what color to be at any given time. To control the lights and audio, we use a Raspberry Pi that runs an operating system called Falcon Player and is the main show controller. The main show controller talks to the individual light controllers outside through wired and wireless communication. Each song is sequenced using software called Xlights that lets us create unlimited effects for each light at any given time.
We have really enjoy putting effort into our lights and being able to share them with Delano and the neighboring communities. Hopefully we will be able to continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
