Tudor Chief's Christmas Show Set To Open Tonight

Dec 3 2010 | 11:02am ET

The show will go on: Paul Tudor Jones' Christmas light show spectacular will return for its 11th year.

Work has already begun at the Tudor Investment Corp. founder's Greenwich, Conn., mansion, alleviating fears that the Christmas light show, like Jones' popular Halloween light show, would be cancelled. The spectacle begins today and will begin at sundown every day until Dec. 22, according to Greenwich Time.

Belle Haven, the gated community in which Jones' waterfront estate is located, put an end to his annual Halloween party this year, citing "safety and security concerns." Safety and security are on Jones' mind for the holiday light and music show, as well: He's hired several off-duty police officers for crowd control and to direct traffic along Harbor Drive.

It's unclear exactly what Jones is planning for this year—or whether he'll throw caution (and money) to the wind to make up for the Halloween disappointment. Greenwich Time reports that the display is "expected to rival those of past years;" workers were seen hanging lights on 40-foot-tall trees and building a lighted archway.
