Christmas Lights In Wimamuma, FL (Near Tampa)

For several years my wife and I did an over the top Christmas Light display at our home, 500,000 plus lights with LOR computer control and time sequenced to music. Having reached the age of not being able to do it myself we decided to donate it to the Masonic RV Park and Youth Camp Ground in Wimamuma, FL. (35 miles south east of Tampa). We hope to use it to help them provide camping and more for kids from all over the United States. After a Simi tractor trailer load of lights and all that goes with it has been taken down we are here setting things up.
We would like to invite anyone who is in the Tampa, FL area to come over and vest us and enjoy the Christmas light display, it will run from Dec. 1, thru Jan 1 from dark until 10:00pm and later if people there. We will always have some coffee on and really hope to see some FROG people there. The address is: Masonic RV Park and Youth Camp Ground, 18050 Hwy 301 South, Wimamuma, FL. 33598.
PS: Yes they do have camping spots and it is a gated camp ground, not a lot of things for kids unless they like 350 acres of wooded walking and bike trails and lots of outdoor things, it does not have a pool. Most everyone there is retired and doing the snow bird thing.
PSS: IF ANYONE LIKES TO WORK ON CHRISTMAS LIGHTS AND WOULD LIKE TO HELP SET UP COME ON BY ANYTIME: LOL

Christmas Lights In Wimamuma, FL (Near Tampa)

This is a fantastic deed you are doing for both the Mason’s ( my departed Father and great BIL were/are in the Mason’s) and future campers. If we were not across the nation, I would come over and at least carry things. Thank you for all future campers.
