    I am a working white man, who happens to be a proud husband & father. I live in a small town of about 15,000 people. I have been doing Christmas Displays from the time I was 10 years old. My parents never wanted very many lights and I always wanted the Griswalds! When I finally got my own place I never had time to put up lights, until a few years later when my wife mentioned it. Then it started adding up, from there. Last Year 2009, we did 7,500 lights and this year we are doing 50,000 with 160 Channels of LOR (2010).

    I previously went by the user name njwatkins1

  • About my display
    This year, 2010, we are displaying 50,000 bulbs with 160 channels of LOR. About 20% of our display will be LED. We will have leaping arches, strobe lights, flood lights, a Mega-Tree, 24 mini trees, and the list goes on...

    This year's display is dedicated to Riley's Children's Hospital & The Riley Children's Foundation. 100% of all the donations will be used for the needs of children this holiday season. All costs incurred in setting up the display as well as the time invested in such a setup is contributed to by The Watkins Family & Friends of Wabash, IN.

  1. Lights For Riley went live Thanksgiving evening. Other than a few GFCI's popping (due to rain) it was a success. We are using 160 Channels of LOR and over 50,000 bulbs. If my addition and the kill-a-watt meter are correct I am pulling (with everything on) 223.65 amps, lol, the meter was going nuts! If you're in Indiana stop by and see us!

  3. Hi folks. I have previously been using njwatkins1 and I thought it appropriate to use a username that matches my display. I've also just finished the initial beta of the Lights For Riley website at www.lightsforriley.com. I'd appreciate any comments you can provide. Thanks for checking us out.
