Merry Mixer Cements Its Place in Chicago’s Christmas Lighting Lore

Facebook/Ozinga

Hey, Santa. Put away the sleigh. There’s a new spin on Christmastime travel.

Ozinga, a concrete and building materials company in the midwest, has rolled out the Merry Mixer.

How do you turn a giant, lumbering cement mixer into a transport of holiday cheer? First you need a 2017 Kenworth T880 McNeilus Bridgemaster cement truck. Then add 20,000 LEDs, connect your laptop, stir in a heap of Christmas carols, and out will pour several cubic yards of Christmas cheer.

The video explains how the Ozinga crew got those little lights to stick to the truck and subsequently sync with the holiday tunes.

The company says their Merry Mixer can be seen taking part in Chicago-area Christmas parades and events.
