Main Street group planning holiday lighting

The Fredericksburg Main Street Initiative plans to light up downtown Fredericksburg during the upcoming holiday season.

The organization, which recently elected a seven-person board and is preparing to hire an executive director, has purchased white LED light strands that will outline the first story of buildings between the 700 and 1000 blocks of Caroline Street and the 100 and 400 blocks of William Street.

The organization is also asking residents and businesses on the second story and above to outline their windows and doors with white, non-blinking lights.

The lights will be up in time for the annual Nov. 9 holiday open house and down by the first week of January.
