Will this bother you or not?
I wondered how I felt about this. The lights do look a little out of place now, but they will really be noticeable in the summer when free outdoor concerts are held every Sunday evening, drawing thousands to sit on the grass and party.
It's common knowledge that the previous sponsors of this light extravaganza backed out because of the hgh cost of maintaining the show. The county stepped in to save the annual event, but had no way to make up the hundreds of thousands of dollars needed.
So it could be that the county will just leave things status quo until it comes time to light the ligths again in November and voila! There will be a light show.
What do you think? Would seeing giant unlighted holiday ornaments all year round bother you? Or could you learn to ignore them and be glad that your taxes haven't gone up to cover the cost of dismantling the show again this year?
