City’s Pride and Beautification Committee Presents: “Season of Lights – Brightening the Community of Redwood City”

Redwood City, CA -  December 1 , 2004 - The holiday season is upon us, and Redwood City’s Pride and Beautification Committee is happy to announce the first annual “Season of Lights,” and urges residents and businesses to participate by decorating and signing up so that others can enjoy their holiday lights.

Many homes and businesses already show their creativity and holiday spirit with festive holiday lights and displays. This year, the City is bringing the community together by providing online maps and a listing of many of these brightly-decorated buildings so that people can share the holiday joy by visiting and enjoying these joyful celebrations of the season, throughout our City.

By visiting, people can click on specific neighborhood areas and link to a list of homes and other buildings decorated and lit-up by their joyful and holiday-spirited owners. Visitors can print the list, visit a different neighborhood each evening, wander through winter wonderlands, holiday displays, and the brightly colored lights that herald the holidays, as they share the joy and spectacle of Redwood City’s “Season of Lights.”

The website also offers a link to sign up to have their address noted in the “Season of Lights” online list of holiday-decorated buildings and homes – the Pride and Beautification Committee urges members of the community to list their decorated home or building so that others can enjoy and share in their holiday spirit.

Perfect for families, the “Season of Lights” helps to kindle the holiday spirit and brings people together to share their civic pride as they celebrate the holidays. Redwood City’s “Season of Lights” provides an opportunity for our residents and businesses to create community through the excitement of beautifying homes, apartments, businesses, and storefronts during the holiday season. The program was developed by the City’s Pride and Beautification Committee, and is aimed at inspiring people to not only “brighten the community” by decorating with lights during the holidays, but also to bring people together in the holiday spirit as they enjoy these decorations throughout the community.
