“I liked the lights synchronized with the music. The tree looked fantastic, the colors were so vibrant, and the tree itself was very bright!” explains Engleman, “They were familiar songs. I immediately recognized Carol of the Bells. Trans-Siberian made a great rendition of it. I enjoyed it, even if it was my 2nd time.”

The show made good first impressions on a visitor, Aileen Zhen.

“It is a lot different than I imagined,” said Zhen, “I thought it was just going to be a performance, with a boring Christmas tree, but it turned out to be way more than that!”

“I come back every year. It’s become a tradition in my family,” says Engleman, “My family loves how the tree looks, and we see it change and improve every year.”
