Springfield’s Holiday Display, photo credit: Jessica Martin

Every year the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce decorates the lamp posts on Main Street in downtown Springfield with banners and white lights to bring twinkle and cheer to the neighborhood during the winter months. This tradition creates an inviting avenue for visitors passing through our lovely town and brings about a sense of warmth and community for all who live here. Many of the lights we used in the past were worn out or broken, so we asked the community for help with replacing them. The outpouring of enthusiasm and financial support has been overwhelming. We are so grateful and moved by everyone’s generosity. Thanks to Bibens Home Center for their support, and we’d also like to express our gratitude to Christmas Trees at Bishop Farm for donating such a beautiful tree for the Downtown Holiday Program. Much appreciation goes to our partners, Springfield On the Move and the Springfield Garden Club, for the lovely wreathes, and for adding extra sparkle to the adjacent trees, and thanks to the downtown businesses that decorated their storefronts so creatively, and to all the groups and organizations that came together to put such delightful displays in the windows of the Woolson Block. And a special thank you to HB Energy Solutions for hanging the banners and doing such a beautiful job of putting up the lights. HB provides us with an enormous amount of assistance with this project, and we’d like to give a huge shout out to Brian Hernon and his team for their amazing efforts setting up Santa’s house and doing the legwork for the tree lighting ceremony. The downtown avenue is looking festive and bright, and the Chamber wants to express utmost appreciation to the following organizations and individuals who helped to Light the Poles for the holiday season:
