70,000 Christmas Lights at Senske

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - 70,000 lights dance to music at the Senske showcase of lights at the corner of Deschutes and Quay in Kennewick.

Senske specializes in landscaping, pest control, but in the winter they specialize in home décor and lighting.

The lights are synchronized to five classic christmas songs playing in a continuous loop.  The music is broadcast over the radio on 101.7 fm and there are also some speakers here.   The lights are programmed with the same computer software used in major theme parks.

Apart from the lights, Senske is going "green" featuring all energy-saving "LED" lights.

LED lights use about 90 percent less power and are supposed to last longer.  The down side however is they cost 6 to 8 times more than regular light bulbs.

The animated light show costs about 40,000 dollars.

It starts at 5 pm and goes until midnight every day.
