Christmas decorations undergo test downtown
SoVaNow.com / October 11, 2012Why are there Christmas lights and decorations on one corner of South Boston’s Main Street now?
That may be the question that passersby are asking themselves, and just in case you’ve noticed, it’s a test, according to Tamyra Vest, Executive Director of Destination Downtown.
South Boston Town Council is trying to address the annual labor cost of some $10,000 that it pays to put lights in the canopies of the Bradford Pear trees while still meeting the needs for unique and effective holiday decorations.
The test location is at the corner of Main and North Main Streets in front of Lantor’s Store where the Town has placed strands of lights on the trunks of the trees as well as the traditional lighted pole wraps and wreaths on the green light poles.
“Take a look and let us know what you think. We’re trying to resolve the dilemma of cost versus an effective alternative,” Vest says.
