Some have arches, others have fire sticks (Bellagio Fountains), and a few with starbursts. I decided to combine all of them into one package. Details are here.

Another idea to use with it... is put two more poles in the center to make three. Have one going up, one curving to the left, and the other to the right with starbursts on them as well.

This would work in an Independence day show as well.

Yes. But... in the display, it will be tied down well. We have lots of wind during the Winter here.

That makes sense............Do you attach your guy wires to the pole or the star to secure it

This is a joint project that Heystew and I are working on. It is going to be a RGB fountain feature. The picture is of the center fountain but there are also two flanking smaller two tier fountains. We did a dry set up prior to taking it to be powder coated. All three fountains are fabricated with 1/2" square solid steel. The 2 smaller fountains (not in picture) are 11.5" in diameter with two tiers- four legs extending vertically 8' 6" high and 12 legs extending 5' from the center support. The large fountain (pictured) is 22' in diameter with 3 tiers. 4 legs extending vertically to 16', 12 legs extending 7' from center support and 12 legs extending 10' from center. Are plan is 3000 channels and 3000 RGB nodes in 11/2" plastic tubing to give it a water like appearance. No videos until after the season.

Wow...and I thought re-vamping my radio sign & doing a mega tree was going to be quite a project this year! LOL! What you guys are doing is amazing and really creative! It will be exciting to see and that so much more this year will be in RGB. Terrific opportunity to learn more from all of you!
