making downtown merry & bright.
Last July, thanks to the support of our community, we fundraised over $40,000 to purchase over 100 lit wreaths and garlands to decorate our downtown lamp posts as well as a 22’ tree to stand proudly and shine brightly on the lawn of the Armory on Front Street.
This year, we are once again seeking lamp post sponsorships to support our downtown beautification efforts during the holiday season. And, as promised, we are continuing to expand downtown décor to truly celebrate the spirit of the holidays with a Holiday Tree Walk in E. Muskingum Park.
We want the beauty and brightness of our downtown to match the vibrancy and excitement of our community, especially during the holiday season that so many small business owners rely on.

Light Up Downtown
Downtown lamp posts are beautifully-decorated with pre-lit garlands and wreaths, making them vibrant every day and every night. Finished with a big red bow and a gift tag, lamp post sponsors enable Marietta Main Street to continue doing what we do to maintain an attractive, inviting downtown during the holiday season.
