Although the Big Bright Light Show in Rochester doesn't officially start until Monday, they're turning on many of the lights on the building facades to test them tonight (Friday 6-10 p.m.). We were up there last night (Thanksgiving)-trying to take photos out of the car window in the pouring rain! They didn't have the dancing snowflakes and such yet, but the lights on the buildings along Rochester Rd looked great :)

That's funny, I was going to include the Big Bright Light Show and didn't because it doesn't start til Monday. I didn't know they turned some of the lights on early. It was freezing cold when we went last year!

Thanks! I'll post more soon.

I did post a few of my shots from last night on my blog today. I didn't want to take my big DSLR out in the rain, and I didn't think I'd get anything at all with my point-and-shoot...but I managed to get a few OK shots :)
We went out to Big Bright a few times last year, and I remember it being pretty darn cold as well!
