As the year comes to a close we can’t help but look back and be grateful. At our jobs, we get to spend every day finding new ways to bring the beauty of light shows to more and more people. Who could ask for more?
This year we directed that gratitude into laying new foundations and taking new directions. All of it was in the name of uniting all types of light show artists together under one roof. With that in mind, we narrowed down our highlights into this top 5 list.

It’s no secret that glovers and light show artists love to hit up kickbacks and flow jams. Collaboration and friendships within the community are key.
