The Williamson County Commissioners Court recognized Laser Spectacles, Inc., on Tuesday, Nov. 7, for receiving the First Place award in the Graphics Show category from the International Laser Display Association. The company was hired by WilCo to put on a laser show for the county’s 175th birthday celebration back in March. 

Thousands of people watched the show which took place on the Main Street side of the historic courthouse building in Georgetown. The show highlighted the county’s 175th birthday theme “Still Making History,” with a look at the county’s past, present and future. 

“This was an inspiring laser show for me to produce. The setting is perfect! What could be better than ‘The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas?’  Programming the lasers on the Williamson County courthouse was a journey for me as I discovered more details of the courthouse architecture to include in the ‘laser mapping’ show,” said Tim Walsh with Laser Spectacles, Inc. 

The laser light show beautifully captured the architectural elements of the historic courthouse while highlighting significant events in the county from the Chisholm Trail cattle drives to the Dan Moody trial. Entries were judged by professionalism, creativity, uniqueness and laser technical experience. 

“The staff members of the county and the Williamson Museum were most helpful as I gathered the historical materials for this once-in-a-lifetime presentation,” said Walsh. “Receiving the First Place Graphics Award from my peers is the cherry on top of this wonderful birthday cake!”
