Get Your Christmas Lights Put Up By Christmas Lights & Sirens (Local Off Duty Firemen)

If you have been thinking of having Christmas lights put up this year, you know how difficult it can be to find trustworthy professionals that won’t bust your holiday budget! We highly recommend you give the gentlemen at Christmas Light & Sirens a call- these local off duty DFW Firefighters have been in the business for 10 years.

And even though it seems a little early to be planning for Christmas lights, now is the time to reserve a spot on their schedule so you can get yours installed in November!

In one simple, affordable quote over the phone, they can provide installation, removal, and year round storage of your lights! This is a great deal because most companies make you provide your own lights and charge you extra when they take them down! Here’s what makes them unique:

Bulbs:

They are exclusively using commercial grade, SMD (Surface Mounted Diode) C9 LED bulbs. The brightest, longest lasting, C9 on the market- available in color or white. Equivalent to 7 diode bulbs making them 40% brighter, they are sealed and waterproof!

Wiring:

They use SPT-2 18 gauge wire. What does that mean? It means the insulation is 0.045” thick not 0.030” providing longevity and UV light damage resistance. It means they care enough to use the highest quality product available to ensure your home looks good throughout the light season and for years to come.

Timers:

Now I bet you never gave much thought to a timer but with 225 customers they do! They use a 15 amp 1850 watt timer with a photocell. When the sun goes down, the lights come on. And the customer can choose 2, 4, 6, or 8 hours of light. Even sunset to sun rise if they prefer with a simple turn of the dial.

Service:

100% satisfaction guaranteed!
No questions asked!
Unlimited warranty work repair at NO cost!

Just head to their Facebook page to check out their work and read all the positive reviews!  In fact, they came out to my house last week to install my holiday lights and their customer service and workmanship was exemplary!

Don’t wait though, their appointments are booking up fast! Just call (214) 232-2229 and mark one more thing off your holiday to-do list! #ChristmasLights

The 2019 State Fair of Texas kicks off TODAY with several new attractions, including puppets, new rides, and an area for selfies!

Marionettes. “¡Fiestas de Marionetas!” is a small village of more than 85 handmade marionettes who come to life to celebrate a fiesta of color, culture, and creativity. You can also get a backstage tour and craft activities after the show. They’ll perform daily at the McDonald’s Amphitheater on First Avenue.

Film. “Texas Cinema” is produced in partnership by the State Fair of Texas and the Dallas Historical Society with a focus on the history and impact of Texas film performers and creators, as well as the depiction of Texas through film. It’ll incorporate video, interactive opportunities, and historical artifacts. There’ll be screenings at the Hall of State auditorium all day, via a partnership with the Dallas International Film Festival.

Photography. “Fair Focus: The Photography of Kevin Brown” is an exhibit of the work of Kevin Brown, who has more than 38 years of professional experience as a Dallas-area freelance photographer and 16 years of shooting photos at the State Fair of Texas. This will be the inaugural showcase in the Briscoe Carpenter Livestock Center exhibit space.

Strongman. The “Mighty Mike Show” will star Mighty Mike, a strongman who can bend horseshoes, juggle bowling balls and sledgehammers, and do “questionable” dance routines. Daily in Coliseum Terrace.

Dancers. “Splashdance!” combines a high-energy performance of professional dancers and acrobats set to music by the Esplanade fountains. Daily on the Mattress Firm Stage on the Esplanade.

Midway rides. New rides include Dancing Clown, Tilt-a-Whirl, and Satori Yachts, four kiddie rides. Crazy Surf and Beach Party are for thrill-seekers yet fun for the whole family. Moon Raker conveys the adventure of space flight; when it reaches its full height, the top tilts and rotates as the entire ride spins. Skyliner is a thrilling family swing ride providing a breathtaking aerial experience.

Selfies. The area around the historic Lagoon will be transformed into a walking selfie stroll called Contain Yourself(ie), with 10 shipping containers painted by Texas artists that address the 2019 theme, “Celebrating Texas Creativity.”

Chocolate. “A Sweet Indulgent Affair” is an exhibit presented by Mundo Latino that will cover the origin and history of chocolate, along with demos and classes. Housed inside the Women’s Museum.

Art. The Kinsey African American Art & History Collection is an acclaimed exhibition that celebrates the achievements and contributions of black Americans from 1595 to present times. Considered one of the most comprehensive surveys of African American history and culture outside the Smithsonian Institution, it features more than 150 paintings, sculptures, photos, books, letters, manuscripts, and more, amassed by Shirley and Bernard Kinsey during their five decades of marriage. It runs September 21, 2019 through March 1, 2020, at the African American Museum, with details and tickets at aamdallas.org.

Football. The schedule for this year’s match-ups inside the Cotton Bowl Stadium are as follows:
