When we say Christmas in Collierville is bigger, brighter and better than ever, we aren’t just yanking the lamp chain here, we are bringing you light like never before.
The town is stringing 129,000 LED pure white lights around Collierville Town Square which are brighter and more energy efficient than the incandescent lights used in the past.
Four hundred C9 LED multicolor lights will be added to the town square Christmas tree bringing the grand total of 4,500 lights to the 30-foot cedar tree.
Speaking of trees, the additional 18-foot Christmas tree will be placed at the corner of North Rowlett and Main Street that will be covered in 1,125 RGB lights that are programmed to create animated light shows coordinated with music. Both trees will also be adorned with large red and gold ornaments.
The town will continue chugging along stringing lights on the Executive Rail Car sitting next to the Depot Visitors Center.
Five hundred C9 LED pure white lights will light up the train for the first time this year.
