The rebuilding has started! the First new arch for the 2015 new snowfall was assembled this week. The new arches are going to be 2' higher and contain more snow flakes & icicle lights on them. We are also planing two new displays along the ride for next year. Thank you to all your donations & wonderful support.
God Bless you one & All. Pete & Char Robinson
This is the first arch of the new 2015 Snowfall. This will replace the damaged snowfall we built 15 years ago. The new arch will have 4 arches with icicle lights & snowflakes on a custom timer cascading down around the train. Each of the new arches has 184' of steel tube and 223' of 3/16" reinforcing rod. Each arch will be over 18' tall with the star on top and 25' wide. As of 2/8/15 we are 1/2 way done making the Arches sections. Next are the new bases & Stars for the top.
This is our new lumunaries for 2015. We are currnetly working on 2000' feet of them to line the track on both sides the in front of the park. This will take over 200 lamps. We have finished the first 300' so far.
Many thanks to the restaurants that are saving jugs for us.
