holiday season is right around the corner, and Findlay is getting a new holiday
look this year.
new decorations will go up soon on the streets of downtown Findlay, but the new
lights come with a hefty price tag.

council agreed to chip in more than $18,000 toward the cost on Tuesday. Leaders

member of the DFID. "The problem was we had short trees, tall trees, fat trees,
skinny trees, and there really wasn't anything uniform going up and down Main Street,

cords need or anything like that."
cost of the new decorations includes installation, maintenance and disassembly
at the end of the season.
