    Not if your time is limited. I've heard that several of the bigger displays have already started. I'll start the second week in November, but I have two weeks off of work to setup.

    I hold my first setup party during start the first weekend in october usually. of course this year we're taking a family break so we'll probably just decorate for the 3 days after Thanksgiving.

    I'll be starting this weekend as well. After NM was named the craziest weather by the weather channel this year...I'm starting this weekend. I was up in Taos, NM today and saw some snow flakes. It's supposed to be fall still.

    Won't be starting for at least a month. Leaves need to come down, grass is still growing. Just like Mike, I'm still building stuff. And waiting on that China order, cause there's some pixels in there that may go to a new megatree.

    New location - new display. Looking forward to 2015 season!

    Awesome Mark. A pixel tree would change the look of your house a lot .. !

    Have you changed out the bulbs inside your blowups with LED replacement bulbs yet ? I will tell you that the Cool White (bright white) type works best because they are the brightest. The same for inside you blowmolds. A 50 or 70 bulb set of LEDs inside the blowmolds will really make them look awesome. I have some detailed posts here that show how to do it.

    I actually hate the look of cool white or bright white LEDs if they are exposed to direct view. They are too bright and remind me of retail stores .. not homey Christmas .. But I have found that they work fantastic inside things like blowmolds, or opaque tubing, etc ..
    Thanks,

    We'll lets see. I got two john Deere tractors. A zero turn john Deere. And a regular deer mower with a bagger. Lol. But. I don't use any if those for leaves. I got a cyclone rake that does a superb job! If you don't know what that is. Google it. Lol

    Yeah that's the best way. But for me it's a little haul to the woods out back.
