How I did it. 2008

I used the Gemmy 12 Outlet Light Show which has 2 seperate boxes that are linked with a link cable.  Each box has 6 outlets, hence the 12 plug or 12 channel reference.  But when you link the two boxes up, the main controller box synchronizes the outlets.  I just finished mapping out the plugs.  I have also labeled which lights are being controlled by each plug.

Controller box
3 4
2 5
1 6




Secondary Box
1 6
2 5

3 4

Setting up the Pillars.

I used 2 sets of 100 minilights on each pillar. I ran the two sets like this.
I used wood hooks here into the facial under the balcony.
? - wood hook
p - plug

I hope this helps.

I got some of the outside Christmas trees at Target this year after Christmas. Normally, $50 each, I got 3 of them for $5 each. Not sure how I am going to incorporate them yet, but I will.
