This year has presented a mountain of hardships for just about everyone and, as the holiday season suddenly finds itself on our doorstep, some may find it difficult to have much care for holiday flair.
To capture the holiday spirit, one North Long Beach resident has decorated his home with Christmas decorations made to “dance” with music played on a certain radio frequency. Ryan Mascorro Blazer said his holiday spectacle uses the same technology utilized for light shows seen on display at Dodger Stadium. For more than 10 years, Blazer has been wowing neighbors with elaborate Christmas decorations.
Blazer’s dancing lights flicker on and off in synchronization with music ranging from pop songs to classical Christmas hits, as seen in the video above. Blazer, who moved to North Long Beach in 2013, brought his light show extravaganza to the uptown community. HIs day job consisted of booking concerts but, like many others, the pandemic brought his work life to a halt.
“2020 was supposed to be a great year,” he said. “But now it’s gone to crap.”
While this year may have been a write off for Blazer, his Christmas light displays still offer a glimmer of joy to neighbors who have suffered through this year.
To catch the light show, drive over to the intersection of Elm Avenue and Adair Street in North Long Beach between 5:30 and 10:30 p.m. Make sure to tune your radio to 107.7 FM to listen as the lights dance to the music.
