Despite a difficult year, all is merry and bright on Main Street in downtown Stroudsburg. That’s because streaming giant Netflix gifted the borough an impressive holiday light display which was installed this past weekend and is lit every night between 6th and 7th streets.
Netflix and Blue Revolver Inc. selected six locations across the country to decorate this year in order to spread holiday cheer during these unprecedented times. The promotional light display features the titles of several 2020 Netflix holiday movies, including Jingle Jangle and Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square.
“This light display has boosted the spirits of residents, visitors and businesses alike,” said Stroudsburg Mayor Tarah Probst. “We decorate Main Street every year with lights and wreaths, plus a large Christmas tree and Menorah in Courthouse Square, but this certainly adds to the holiday cheer.”
Stroudsburg, along with the other five cities selected, can keep the donated light display and put it up year after year.
While walking or driving through the light show, keep an eye out for the life-size Snowmen of Stroudsburg sculptures which also can be found throughout downtown Stroudsburg.
