New light posts went up downtown last week.
Last night, the Main Street holiday decorations — snowflakes, garlands, red and gold bows — were installed, and turned on.
The result — a vast improvement over last year’s lame zip line — was a collaborative effort. The Downtown Merchants Association ponied up the funds, while the DMA, town officials and Beautification Committee helped it all come together.
The Beautification Committee plans to decorate the baskets on the old cobra-style lights too. Those poles will remain up until after New Year’s. Removing them now would disrupt holiday shopping — and leave gaping holes in the sidewalk, until they’re bricked over.
Downtown once again looks quite festive. Take that, Fairfield!
