It is quickly becoming that time of year again when holiday light displays dot the town. Our kids really enjoy seeing the lights as we drive them to and from the places we go in the evening. We thought it would be really great if there were a way to quickly find where all the light displays in town were so that we could bring our kids by to see them, instead of randomly driving around in search of a lit tree here, a string of lights there, or a full-on holiday lights extravaganza.
To help, a couple members of the IT staff came together to create two web page applications. The first web page allows people to post the location of their holiday light displays/decorations, along with a description as well as a teaser photo. The second web page allows people to look at the map with all of the postings so people can see where in Town there are holiday lights/decorations. It provides an opportunity to share the joy of holiday lights with kids of all ages and gives parents a way to efficiently find nearby display locations.
