Stamford Downtown Bids Farewell To The Winter Lights - Stamford Moms

It’s officially SPRING! With that, Stamford Downtown is bidding farewell to their winter light display this week. Stamford Downtown keeps the winter lights up, past the holiday season to add warmth during the cold winter months. This year marked the expansion of the Stamford Downtown lighting programming with the addition of lighting to the street trees along Summer Street.

Stamford Downtown’s lighting program is produced by the Christmas Lighting Company of Pearl River, New York and lasts from mid-November until early March. The lighting program consists of 80 street trees, with approximately 1,700 lights per tree, along Bedford, Atlantic and Main Streets. Additionally, Stamford Downtown installs lighting at Latham and Kiwanis Parks. The display is highlighted by multi-color lights at two  large oaks at the Ferguson Library and Columbus Park .

In total, Stamford Downtown’s Winter Lighting program is made up of almost 250,000 multi-color and warm-white lights in addition to a wall installation of 120 light rides at Kiwanis Park. The large oak tree at Columbus Park, alone, is the site of 63,000 lights and has become a staple of Downtown. All lights used in the program are LED thus greatly reducing the cost of the energy needed to power the display.

We can’t wait to see them again next winter!!
