Today has had continuing showers causing our back areas
to remain wet and un-safe for access. Unless things dramatically improve
we will REMAIN CLOSED TONIGHT 12/27. We will post other details
if conditions improve.
We are always determining safety first in whether to operate
our display. We love to show our display but love
the water we need to help our drought conditions more.
Last night 12/26 started with light rain but by 7:00 the rainfall
required us to close for safety in our back display areas due to wet walks
and electrical safety concerns. We full closed our display by 7:15.
Widmer-World Update through Sunday 12/18/2022
Weather looks promising through the week-end so we will
be running each night from 6-9 P.M. Hope to have all our fixes
made to the display in next few days.
We look forward to seeing you here at Widmer-World for a
fun stroll through our many displays
and to challenge you with the scavenger hunt.

it is running fine.
12/11/2022 Widmer-World Update
CLOSED TONIGHT "SUNDAY"
We were working to repair damage from winds of Saturday, lightpoles
moved in their sleeves, trees pulled staking out of ground,
a lot of decorations fell over and garland had a mind of its own.
Monday looks like a better day with only a 10% chance
of rain. We would like to be able to run our display
before our season is over. Need to remember we
need the water!
12/10/2022 Widmer-World Update
Wow, the forecast was for wind and rain and we certainly are
getting both. Hope it is helping with the drought. This is the most we
have closed in our 22 year run.
We did have some minor wind damage and the garland decided to
redecorate as well. Once the rain lets up we will start cleaning and
fixing up our outer displays waiting for better weather.
Thanks to all who visited last night as it was a perfect night
for a stroll through Widmer-World.
12/9/2022 Widmer-World Update
We are open and running tonight.
Scroll down on main page to see our videos or check us out on YouTube. We will have the 2022 video posted soon.
Feel really bad about believing yesterday's forecast and making the decision to close. Not a drop of rain at our place between 6 and 9. I am going back to the process of sticking my hand out to make the decision on open or close.
Hope to see you all at Widmer-World.
December 8th 2022 Update
Although still dry now we are going to go with the latest weather forecast showing showers and rain by 7:00 PM and CLOSE for tonight.
We will be keeping the entire display dark. We always hate to do this as we so enjoy seeing old and new friends every day of the season.
With our large electrical layout and many walkways we need to always trend to the safe side of operating WW.
Friday looks to be a good day as cloudy but no rain.
Widmer-World Status 12/6
Fully open tonight but it is a chilly evening. Weather towards weekend may cause problems. We will post status as soon as we can assess weather conditions. You can find a PDF for the scavenger hunt pictures and names under the scavenger tab on the web page. We are working to make this easier to view but not therre yet.
Widmer-World Status 12/5

Widmer-World Status 12/4
Weather looks promising with only a few scattered showers predicted. We will be OPENING tonight from 6-9 PM, hope to see you here.
Widmer-World Status 12/3
Saturday December 3rd 2022, with the current wet conditions in our rear areas and forecast of heavy rain around 6 PM we have decided to remain dark tonight. We are sad to remain closed but safety is our primary objective in operating Widmer-World.
Widmer-World Status 12/2
We will be open tonight both front and rear areas. Will re-assess for Saturday and Sunday but for tonight we are ready to roll.
Widmer-World Status 12/1
Hoping we would have a better day on December 1st for our opening but we really need the rain so we will take what we can. The back yard is a mess from the winds last night and this morning, mainly leaves everywhere and garland blown around. Too much to clean and get ready for tonight so the back areas will be CLOSED tonight. We will have the front yard light show running.
