Jolly & Bright Light Show - every evening during the holidays. First Colony Mall is lighting the season with its exclusive Jolly & Bright Light Show beginning Saturday, November 10. The Jolly & Bright Light Show, designed by internationally known Parker 3D, features a dazzling light and sound program unlike anything in greater Houston. Jolly & Bright spans 465 feet and will light up Center Court from Gap to Bath & Body Works, with more than 100,000 energy efficient LED lights. The light show is controlled by more than 25-networked computers and backed up by 2,000 watts of rock concert sound. The energy efficient show requires more than 11 miles of copper wire and runs on less than half the power used in a typical home. Shows take place nightly, beginning at 6 p.m. and will be every hour on the hour until the mall closes. Visit www.firstcolonymall.com for details.
