Boddens ante up light display

Three lighting displays in all were installed at Maxine and Maureen Bodden’s family home, pictured, as well as Vampt Motors and Home Gas. – Photos: Jeff Brammer Lights and displays adorn the entire yard at the Bodden home. The holiday lights display at the Bodden home in South Sound has been entertaining residents and visitors alike for decades. The public are allowed to stroll through the grounds at the Bodden home.

The Bodden family has been offering the community a way to celebrate the Christmas holiday season for more than 30 years with elaborate lighting displays and animated life-sized figurines.  

This year, they raised the bar on their holiday lighting display by hiring Paul Smith, with Animated Lighting, to animate their lights to music. Three lighting displays in all were installed at Maxine and Maureen Bodden’s family home, as well as Vampt Motors and Home Gas.  

“It’s the ‘WOW!’ factor we’re going for in animating our lights to flash dramatically with the music. This year we have used red, white and blue lights in keeping with the 2012 as the year of the HM the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee,” Mr. Smith said. 

Each display features musical lighting tuned to separate frequencies at each installation. For the Bodden home at 389 South Church Street you can hear the music on a radio frequency of 93.1FM. For Vampt Motors it’s 92.1FM and for Home Gas tune into 97.9FM. 

“It is such a pleasure to see the delighted faces of the children when they see the lights flash to the music,” Ms Maxine Bodden said. “This is our way of giving back to our community by providing an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the colourful arrangements of lights and music.” 

The lighting show consists of three tunes in each location, which trigger the lights to flash in syncopation with the music. The lighting display lasts for 15 minutes at a time with a break in between the cycling of tunes.
