LED Christmas lights will bring holiday cheer
The Rocky Ridge County Park in York County, Pa., will feature 600,000 LED Christmas lights for the 30th annual Christmas Magic event.
Christmas LED lights have been used to illuminate the half-mile walking trail at the festival since 2006. Their implementation began as a way to save energy, and this year's trail lighting will be 95 percent LEDs. There will also be LED strings lights providing illumination and good tidings throughout Rocky Ridge.
Visitors will experience animations, food and Santa Claus with a high-quality glow that will ignite the trail in beautiful light. In 2011, the event had record attendance of 43,800 visitors. With thousands of LED Christmas lights, Rocky Ridge is sure to top those numbers in 2013.
Traditional Christmas lights have the headache of bulbs constantly burning out. At a festival of lights, a few burned-out bulbs can throw off the entire ambience. However, Christmas LEDs can last for at least 100,000 hours to ensure that visitors receive the same stunning display of light whether they attend Christmas Magic the first night or the last night.
