RENO, NV - Seven-year-old Zachary Kreidberg has the best seat in the car when it comes to riding around looking at Christmas lights.
But the venture wouldn't be half as successful without the help of his dad, Nicholas.
During the day Nicholas is a web application developer with Desert Research Institute.
In his off time he help co-developed 'Twinkle Trail."
“You can search, by zip code, by city, by state, keep it real general or search for a specific address or what have you. And then you can view each location and say this looks interesting, this doesn't, add it to your trial. Once you view your trail, you see all of your points--that's where you enter your start and stop points. You get a map and then directions,” says Kreidberg.
Nicholas, with his wife Katie, and son Zach says he found some real gems just down the street from his house he never thought existed.
He simply put his location---and wanted to end at his location, and the website does the rest.
“The categories are: they have lights, they have music, they have performers, they have motion stuff. So they are categorized that way,” says Kreidberg.
The system only works because it’s interactive.
House decorators proud of their work can enter their home.
A driver can enter his choice, so can his kids.
This is the first year for "Twinkle Trail" but Nicholas hopes to one day to 'enlighten' the world.
