Tampa Prep alum Sam Johnson (’18) considers himself a tech whiz, for good reason. He and his family have been putting on a spectacular Halloween light display, with over 16,000 individual lights, programmed with music, for five years.  Not only does he provide fun & entertainment for their community, but he has raised nearly $20,000 over the years for two charities: Clothes to Kids, which provides a week’s worth of clothing to kids who apply for free or reduced lunch and Where Love Grows, which fights childhood hunger.

Johnson runs three 20-minute computerized musical light shows every Friday and Saturday in October, with shows starting nightly, October 25 – 31 starting at 7:30pm.  Search for the Sylvan Ramble Light Show page at for a complete schedule.
