Light show returns to Troy
TROY - The holidays are back - and so is the light show at Alparon Park in Troy.
The Third Annual Heritage Village Christmas Light Show is now playing at Alparon Park.
The light show takes place seven days a week from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., and is synchronized to music on 107.9 FM on your car radio. It cycles every 30 minutes.
Bill Brasington, president of the Bradford County Heritage Association said the light show has gotten a good response.
"We have people asking about it, asking when it's going to start."
He said it's became a favorite with kids.
"They seem to enjoy it and want to see it over and over."
Brasington said people enjoy the "combination of 10,000 lights over such a large area."
He said "it's interesting to watch."
"Some of the music is very fast-paced, and it makes the lights dance."
The light show, he said, is a way to give back to the community.
The wishing well, built by the Girl Scouts in 2007, is all lit up for the light show.
"We have many organizations in Bradford County that donate their time to help the Bradford County Farm Museum." He said the wishing well is just one example, and the farm museum likes "to recognize some of the good organizations that help us out."
By putting an emphasis on the wishing well in the light show, it "draws attention to some of the good work the Girl Scouts do," he said.
At the Heritage Village, people can park in a designated space and watch the light show with the Mitchell House and other historic buildings at the village decked out in holiday lights.
The light show continues through New Year's. It is free and open to the public.
Brasington thinks it's a good time.
"Watching it from the warmth of your car and listening to it with the music from your radio is always enjoyable."
