If any of my non-Tucson friends are reading this thread, each year at Christmas time, several of us deck out a golf cart with as many ridiculously bright lights as we can manage. We needed a place to plan it for this year and this was the only forum I could remember I owned, so this is where we're discussing it. Feel free to comment and be ignored/ridiculed for your ideas, or you can just lurk and watch the hilarity.

Looking into light-o-rama, but that may end up being overkill and too expensive.

Ideas I've seen in other mediums:
  • water feature
  • snow machine

Had the water feature idea on the ride home yesterday. It really doesn't need to be spectacular at all, just a water feature, because it's a water feature on a cart. The roof is domed for water spill anyway, so a simple edging of some kind around it with a drain in the corner to a recirculating pump would be fine. Use fish tank tubing or the like so we're never spraying too much, so as the air whips it up or drivers get...tipsy... the collateral damage from water spray will be minimal. Some LEDs to make it shine and I think that'd do it.

I am pro this water feature concept. We'll need some kind of design, I'm not sure spraying water haphazardly will garner us the attention we want.
