A Church St Christmas

All the lamp poles along Church St are decorated with these lovely snowflakes which I think must light up at night, as well as the banners which are there all year. Church St is the main street running through the 'gay village' an enclave special to the LGBT community and it is the site of all the festivities of Pride Week held every summer.

That's a fine banner. We also have "Shop Local" signs around here. It's a fine idea. Yes, those windows were double glazed. It was just so cold.

I love the banner and the snowflake. The banners remind of similar ones I saw in Chicago.

I like the idea of shopping and playing local! I bet the snowflakes are stunning after dark.

An attractive banner and I think the message is important. Our cities and communities need the support of the people in order to thrive and make better places to live for everyone!

I really like the choice of a banner. Colorful and appealing to the eye.

Both Hartford and Naples use banners to brighten up the main commercial areas of town. They change at least yearly.

Good shot!

A place the drooling idiot in the mayor's office avoids at all costs, obviously...
