Video: Wallingford sign gets holiday lights

December 5th, 2010 · No Comments

The Wallingford sign atop QFC may look a little more festive the next time you see it in the evening. At dusk yesterday, Green Man Holiday Lights flipped the switch to turn on red and green lights around the perimeters of the sign letters.

This video of the lighting shows that only the second half of “Wallingford” lit up at the end of the countdown.

A minute later, the whole sign was festooned with red and green lights.

Then the Green Carolers sang holiday tunes updated with environmentally focused lyrics.

Meanwhile, Not a Number hosted a Festivus celebration all afternoon and evening. Proprietor Kara Ceriello told us about some grievances aired at the store:

– football game on today at same time as all the cool stuff going on!
– people don’t know how to use apostophes and commas
– not enough latkes at the hannukah party
– stupid tea partiers
