Big Bright Light Show in Rochester, MI January 8, 2013

I’ve been a slacker, or busy as I prefer to call it!  I finally made it to the Big Bright Light Show in downtown Rochester, with my camera.  Yes, it happened to be the last night they were on (or if history repeats itself, until the Snow and Ice Festival, shhh!).  If you haven’t been you’ve got to check it out!  Rochester has completely redone their main street: road, sidewalks, planters – the WHOLE thing!  The lights go on for the holiday season on the last Monday of November.  That night is Lagniappe, which means “a little something extra” in creole.  The sidewalks are filled and stores often give a little something extra.  My kids’ favorite is the flashy led item of the year from Lucido Fine Jewelry.  Anyway, the lights turn on at 7pm that night and shine every evening until this year on January 6th.  I love to see the downtown bustling every evening, as I’m sure the businesses are after a tough summer due to the construction.  Oh, and if you are out walking around don’t forget to head down 4th, which is pretty lit up as well.  Where 4th meets Water you’ll see the Knitting Mills Building with huge flashing snowflakes up the side.  That building is home to the Rochester Mills Brewery, some businesses, and Paint a Miracle.  From there you can walk across the bridge, and along the river and the Royal Park Hotel.  Every year there is a huge gingerbread house in the lobby of the hotel, complete with giant recipe card if you are feeling inspired to make your own!  Whew, I sound like a tour guide instead of a photographer.  On to the images from my little downtown photo session!  Of course, ‘someone’ had to jump in some shots and throw a few poses my way.

Here’s a few shots from the other night.
