Warwick, RI — Tradition holds that many Christmas trees and displays will be going up this weekend, and the Picozzi Christmas display will be among them starting Friday.
Frank Picozzi, the architect of the annual light display, has posted this year’s schedule to the family’s Christmas display Facebook page.
Last year, Frank has set up his front yard with cascades of colorful lights [including a few that look like animated characters], a revolving medley of Christmas tunes, and a transmitter so drivers could listen to the music over FM radio.
He held a test run last weekend, and posted a sample video to YouTube, set to “Let it Go” from the Disney animated movie, Frozen (posted below).
If you haven’t made it to the Picozzi house — just off Archdale Drive off West Shore Road — it’s definitely worth the time.
Santa has also been known to make an occasional stop at the house, too.
Part of the display is also a donation box, where contributions are collected for the Make-A-Wish Foundation through Dec. 31.
Last Dec. 20 represented the highest-ever one-night total in the seven years that he’s been running the display.
This year’s hours are 5:30 to 10 p.m. for Friday and Saturday, and 5:30 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
