Symphony In Lights Premieres at The Village at Gulfstream Park Nov. 20

The Village at Gulfstream Park, South Florida's ultimate shopping, dining and entertainment destination, is proud to announce the arrival of Symphony in Lights, a spectacular, dancing light show choreographed to the holiday music of Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Beginning Saturday, November 20, the blinking, twinkling computer-animated extravaganza will run through December 31. Click on the video above for a similar light show at the Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel, Florida. 

"We are extremely excited to bring this spectacularly unique holiday experience to South Florida," said Jeannie Roberts, Director of Marketing for The Village at Gulfstream Park. "This special showcase is sure to light up the season for South Floridians."

More than 250,000 LED lights will be affixed to buildings and trees in The Village at Gulfstream Park's Champions Plaza. These lights are programmed to blink in sync with recorded music by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The breathtaking show is created using 2,000 watts of sound, 47,000 feet of cable and 10 tons of holiday decorations. Symphony in Lights is choreographed by renowned light artist Carson Williams, who garnered famed after a home video of his Mason, Ohio home's holiday light and music show made its way to YouTube in 2005. His light display became so popular it created traffic jams in his neighborhood. The popular display was even featured in a Miller Lite beer commercial and Williams appeared on NBC's The Today Show.

Along with Williams, The Village at Gulfstream Park has commissioned New York artist John Carter to design the light show experience. Carter, a design director for Parker 3D, has designed sculptural interactive displays around the world as well as the design, fabrication and installation of major holiday windows in New York City for department stores such as Macy's, Lord & Taylor, Saks 5th Avenue and others. His work has appeared in countless international publications and he was chosen by New York Times Magazine as "one of 30 artists most likely to change culture."

Symphony in Lights will run every hour on the hour from 6pm-11pm, Nov. 20-Dec.31. In addition to Symphony in Lights, The Village at Gulfstream Park holiday experience will also feature complimentary horse-drawn carriage rides, Fridays through Sundays, from November 20 through December 26.

On Thursday, December, 2nd, The Village at Gulfstream Park, along with Chabad of South Broward, will host a Menorah Lighting Ceremony from 7:30pm to 9pm. Guests will enjoy light refreshments, a live musical performance and a chance to win a $500 shopping spree at Jacob's Classic Market.
