The town of Rincon does a wonderful job with their Christmas and Three Kings Day lights every year. This year was no different, aside from the fact that they had bigger trees to drape the lights across. The town planted all new trees and plants about 5 years ago and completely rebuilt the square. It looks great. Not only is it nice now, but much like our yard, daydreaming of how nice the square will be in 10 years with tons of shade from all the grown up trees it will be amazing.
Summer, Sydney and I were walking around the square a few weeks ago and I took a closer look at how the municipality hung and powered the holiday lights. Now, maybe it’s just because Brian Henry (aka: The Mad Electrician) is so talented and is certified in all the necessary codes to run safe power and I dip my feet in the civil litigation pool for a living, but the holiday lighting in Rincon is absolutely insane. Instead of planning ahead and putting in power outlets at each section of trees (separated by concrete sidewalks), they simply spliced into the power of the gazebo and ran 3 wire taped together from tree to tree. There are no boxes and the wires are low enough to the ground to touch. Completely rigged. Check out this picture. Felicidades Rincon!
