Cory’s Audio Visual Holiday Lightshow
Cory’s Audio Visual Holiday Light Show is the newest addition to Lights On Broadway. They’ve created a mesmerizing show with “projection mapping” to make the historic three-story building located at 900 N Broadway Ave. come to life with various holiday scenes and light schemes. Attendees can expect to see some familiar holiday characters and some fun 3D elements all custom fit for the building’s shape and size. The show will run during both nights of Lights On Broadway from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The creative minds at Cory’s Audio Visual wanted to help activate Automobile Alley and celebrate the season by bringing this innovative technology to Lights On Broadway attendees. The lightshow is created and donated by Cory’s Audio Visual.
