Danbury will once again string lights across Main Street to emulate how it was decorated for Christmas in the 1950s. Mayor Mark Boughton told the City Council earlier this month that there was an issue that had to be resolved. The issue was whether City employees would hang the lights, or if a contractor would be hired. It was decided to hire a contractor to string the lights from buildings on one side of Main Street, across to the other.
The City purchased the lights last year for a cost of $65,000. Boughton previously said the LED lights will save the City money because they will be on a timer system.
Danbury's annual Light the Lights event at Library Plaza is scheduled for December 3rd at 5:30pm.
