The winter lights are now on in Stamford Downtown!
The display boasts over 300,000 miniature lights. The Downtown display begins with Bedford and Atlantic streets where there have over 80 trees awash in lights. This part of the display contains over 130,000 individual warm white mini lights wrapped on individual tree branches.
You will quickly be drawn to the Oak tree at the entrance of Ferguson Library. This tree has over 12,000 miniature lights wrapped on its branches and adds a tremendous splash of color in the center of Stamford. The “Ferguson Library Tree” was added to the original display in 2017.
Over 25 trees on Summer Street have their branches wrapped and are lit with the same warm white LED lights as Bedford and Atlantic streets. Almost 50,000 mini lights adorn the trees along Summer St, and are well worth a trip to see these lights!
Once you arrive in the Downtown area and have taken a peak at our street trees, you will want to check out the lights in our 3 parks.
Starting with Kiwanis Park, this small park boasts a striking display with cool white mini lights, dripping lights both in the trees, and on the adjacent building walls. Rounding out the Kiwanis Park display are festive ornaments hanging in the trees.
Our next park is Latham Park, this open space park boasts the same cool white mini lights wrapped in the tree branches along with the dripping lights. This park however, has the added bonus of our Christmas Tree that has over 10,000 mini lights displayed along with strobe lights that give an extra “wow” factor. The strobe lights are lit for 3 minutes approximately every 15 minutes, if you don’t see them, wait a minute and you will not be disappointed!
Finally, but most definitely, not last, is Columbus Park. Columbus Park contains what most of our visitors consider the biggest and brightest part of the entire Downtown Display. The oak tree masterpiece features over 80,000 multi-color mini lights wrapped on each branch all the way to every tip of the tree. This tree is wrapped in stunning multi-color LED lights and framed in warm white lights by the smaller street trees on the edge of the park making this display a photo worthy stop while viewing the lights in Stamford. The Columbus park tree will wow and put a smile on the face of even the biggest Grinch in town.
Christmas Lighting Company, Inc. installs and maintains the display that is made possible by the Stamford Downtown Special Services District.
