The display changes from year to year. 2015 featured a 80+ character choir and a 20 foot tall Christmas tree made from blow molded figures. The display is run by Light-0-Rama computer control, partially synchronized to music that is broadcast via an outdoor speaker system

Perhaps in other years this has been a better display. However, my kids and I were sorely disappointed after driving out from Schaumburg to view the display (12/26/2010). The biggest problem is the house is located on a busy street with no parking permitted. Even driving by twice at 15mph, the display looked like a blog of white lights. I'm not even sure the display included 35,000 lights as advertised. I do know there we no special effects nor music synchronization. All in all, it was just not worth the drive nor the time to stop by this display.
