I was busy all year long planning and preparing for the 2003 display.  At the end of the 2002 season I hit the stores and bought several more lights and displays at clearance sales.  Next I spent several  months  planning and scheming.  Every single light was tested and repairs were made where needed.  All of the lights and displays were inventoried and stored for easy access.

In August of 2003 I attended the Planet Christmas Lights Up Symposium in Nashville, Tennessee.  While there I learned a lot and networked with several other Christmas light fanatics.  I returned  home with several more ideas for the next Christmas Utah display.

In September of 2003 I began building new displays.  Some of the new displays included: a 22 foot lighted driveway arch, a six foot animated angel, two nine foot tall nutcrackers, several pathway arches, a 12 foot tall mega tree, and several three foot tall lighted trees.  I also introduced a new computer program to run the show and synchronize the lights to music.  2003's display included 71,000 lights!

A special thanks is given to the following people who helped with the 2003 light show.  Thank you  to Kerry Easton for his welding equipment which he unselfishly loaned.  Allen Norton of Norton Machine sold me hundreds of pounds of steel at cost.  The members of the Planet Christmas Chat Room gave lots of ideas and advise.  Kent Mabey donated several electronic odds and ends and repaired and upgraded my light controllers.  Rod Wilkerson and Eric Staten donated the heaters to keep my garage/stage warm for the musicians.  Most of all I need to thank my lonely wife, Micalle, who patiently put up with my outrageous purchases and all the time I spent tinkering with displays.
