Check Out This Prince Themed MN House
Growing up in a home where my mother was a huge fan of Prince. When I heard of home decorated for the holidays with the Prince theme I thought I need to bring her for hot chocolate and head over to this Prince themed home with over 10,000 purple lights and surprise her.
The Staudt family does this theme each year and it’s one of many homes Twin Cities that go nuts decorating their home for the holidays for all to enjoy. Their over-the-top light displays seem to get a little more extreme every year, driven by advances in technology, social media and a growing tradition for families to cruise their communities in search of the best drive-by show.
Fans are honoring the memory of Prince this holiday season in a variety of ways, but now you can check out a home with 10,000 purple lights that blink in unison to "Purple Rain." I think this would be awesome. What a sight for a true Prince fan.
You can go and see The "Lights on Pascolo" display, which Pascolo is the name of the street this light display is on. The light show started as a holiday celebration, then after Prince passed away it has turned into a tribute to the late pop star.
The entire light show is 14 minutes long. The "Purple Rain" intermission also includes a spinning Prince love symbol, and graphics of the Purple One all set to "Purple Rain" if you tune your car radio to 87.9 FM.
The Staudt family estimated that they put at least 200 hours into the project. The Staudt family said about the cost of light bill "It’s less than you would think,". "Everything is high-efficiency and LED. My whole show runs off 1,000 and 1,200 watts, equivalent to having your microwave on for four hours a night."
All the cars and commotion at the Waconia display caused neighbors to complain. They didn’t want to disturb their neighbors so the display the lights and music only at certain times.
The light shows can be seen from 5:40 to 9 p.m., Sundays through Thursdays, and from 5:40 to 9:40 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The show repeats every 20 minutes. The Prince-inspired intermission lasts about two minutes. The home is at 3850 Pascolo Bend in Chaska. I think we will for sure take this one in this holiday season.
