4th Fest Preparation 004

A giant light-up clock is the main feature of the ground-based fixtures of this year's display, seen here in its final stages as volunteer Brian Boyer works on it from atop a scissor lift. Designed and crafted by State College Area High School alumna volunteer Katie Salvaggio, the clock utilizes white rope lights masked off to form the clock face, and will illuminate to display 9:32, the time at which the piece will light. The few hundred feet of rope lighting used for this feature was recycled from last year's show.
